Kevin,

Remember the movie, but can not remember the name or the AFV.

I think I know the movie you're talking about. I remember a film with Lloyd Bridges as a German tank commander chasing a damaged P-40 that could only taxi around the desert because of some damage. It used to show up on the local stations' afternoon movie before syndicated programming took over.
Aha! I found it on IMDB. The movie I'm thinking of is called "Death Race" (not to be confused with Death Race 2000, which is a completely different beast). According to the site, it's a 1973 made for TV movie.
I hope I'm on the right track here.
