Many Americans have embraced the French culture while living in France.  Others have tried to bring a bit of Americana with them.  Gregory Marshall is an interesting hybrid.  The 72 year old lives near the capital of Burgundy and is a member of a 2CV club there.  He has acquired several 2CV’s but perhaps is best known for his revamping of this 2CV to be an American decalled assault tank able with a cannon that is able to ride on rails.

     

A former member of the American Marines, Gary is the son, a nephew and a cousin of US soldiers who participated in the WWII Normandy landing and Operation Overlord. 

 

When Gary is not in a military mood but still wanting to play an enforcement role, he can be found staked out as a state trooper in his Highway Patrol 2CV.
