AUTHOR: linda TITLE: A Story About the Largest Privately-Owned Tank Collection in the World DATE: 9:33:00 AM ----- BODY:
It was a beautiful fall Sunday afternoon to enjoy the world's largest privately-owned tank collection at the fundraiser for the San Mateo County Horsemen's Association, at Jacques Littlefield's Pony Tracks
Ranch
in Portola Valley.


The world famous collection of 205 tanks from WWI to the Gulf War resides in three barn buildings at the historic 450 acre ranch developed in the 1920's by "Sunny Jim" Rolph, a longtime mayor of San Francisco.


I had the good fortune to attend a docent-led tour the first time I was there in 2005, and again this time, I was hosted for this private party with this small group of horse friends and neighbors.


Here is a picture of Jacques himself, doing what he loves best.
