I ran across a DVD set to the old TV series The Rat Patrol. Great action series that is probably best remembered by men in their early 40s. I bought season 1 at Wal-Mart for $30 and it includes 32 episodes on 4 DVDs.

For those of you not familiar with the series, a group of four men in Jeeps rode around the North African desert fighting one of Rommel's captains.

Don't remember seeing it on TV over here, but I do recall seeing the Aurora model and wishing that I could afford it. No chance on my pocket money

I am in my early 30's and I remember this show. It was rerun on the local channel we have in my town when I was in Grade 3. I used to love it. I actually saw a couple episodes not to long ago. Cheezy as heck and a bit loose with the facts but hey it was great!

As a kid I always wanted a Jeep with a .50 on the back and now that I am an adult I still do. :-)
