Apparently, the tank, which had been deployed in Iraq, only had around 1,500 miles on the clock – but it had clearly been an eventful journey. In fact, while they were taking a closer look at the vehicle, Mead and his mechanic Chamberlain made a startling discovery. They found a stash of live ammunition hidden inside, after which they were forced to contact the authorities to hand it in.

But that wasn’t the end of the drama at Tanks-alot; it was just the beginning. Later that week, Chamberlain realized that one of the external fuel tanks was refusing to budge. With the help of a crowbar, then, he finally managed to lift the heavy container – and then he found a strange hole cut into the metal.
