What amazes me most is that he bought the tank in Ebay!

Maybe I should mortgage my house and buy a tank to see what's inside.

Best time for Soviet tank buying was probably early 90's,right after the demise--it was the Wild West. You could get a T-34,delivered to the Port of Baltimore,for $10,000. USD Plus,if you bought three, you'd get a free one for parts.

(Or so I was told--I didn't do it myself!)

Nope--but some reviews here:


Are you thinking about visiting? Or buying? If the latter, there are US sources,which might involve fewer headaches. Here's a T-34 for sale:

Edit: Oops,sorry,they're in Prague!

There are US sellers,though.

Hmmmmmm… A 4 million sized tank that was holding only 2 million worth of gold. Makes me wonder.

If you just want to drive something,there's this place in Georgia:

$100 USD for 10 minutes, or $500 USD for 25 minutes includes running over a car multiple times--if that turns you on.

"Drivers must be at least 15 yrs with a learner's permit"--LOL!

Soldiers loot gold? I'm sure there's a film script in there somewhere…

So that's where they ended up!

The Nigerian Oil Minister said the shipment was in the tank and they had lost track of it.

Pity I lost my claim ticket…
