According to the vounteer that I talked to some of the vehicles are in running condition and are used in movies. They also have restored a Sherman that was supposed to be used in the movie fury. But most of the items are just sitting and rusting. I agree it is sad. However, as a collector am I happy that they have not been scraped in the first place. So we still have some time to look at them.

That is where it gets interesting. If they were government owned vehicles then I do not believe they would be allowed to use them in movies due to insurance and other multitude of legal regulations. If they are government owned vehicles then only government employees can operate them, no actors, no stuntmen. That is why I questioned if it was a private collection.
