Many little kids dream of driving a big tank, but none of them probably imagine it’ll become a reality, or that they might even find an even bigger surprise hidden inside the tank. For Todd Chamberlain, though, the dream of operating a tank became a reality, and so did his amazing discovery. He was working on the tank at his farm in England, and then found an even bigger surprise when he looked inside!
Is the Tank for Real?
But, first, you might be wondering how and why a man would want to purchase a full-sized tank, particularly when he lives on a farm. After all, a tank is not an inexpensive purchase, nor would it be cheap for operation and maintenance. And, really, what would a farmer need with a tank?
Fortunately, there are answers to all those questions, and you’ll find that it’s easier than you might have ever imagined to buy (and drive) a tank. In fact, with companies like Tanks-alot, you can learn to drive or even tour London in a tank (or another military vehicle). It’s no longer just something you’d see in the movies. It’s a real-life adventure.
A Man and His Tanks
Collector Nick Mead really is living the dream of many tank enthusiasts. From his farm in Helmdon, England, he runs a whole business around tanks and related “crushing” adventures. Technically, he runs his business as Tanks-alot, the perfect name for a business that supplies those massive (and even smaller) military vehicles for a whole range of movies and TV shows. So, when you see a chase scene featuring a tank in your favorite movie, it could just be one of his vehicles.
Of course, he also offers those vehicles for private events and driving lessons, which means that it’s quite possible for you to have a tank experience yourself!
