    I want a tank!

    I had a fantastic afternoon today thanks to my Wife's 50th birthday present to me of a tank driving session.

    I drove a Chieftain, an APC and an Abbot SPG...wicked fun...

    I also had a go on a 250cc Quad bike which was brilliant fun but boy did I scare myself!

    Here you go! ABBOT TANK SELF PROPELLED GUN EX MOD ROAD REGISTERED seems quite a reasonable price, cheaper than many cars.

    We booked my Mum on one of these for her 60th birthday (15 years ago now).

    She had a brilliant time, but it was very tiring!

    If one breaks down, just fly the next one

    You would need a big garden though!

    I went past L Jackson's the other month, they had quite a bit of the stuff on display as its an old bunker that is used.
