Wow! That is in amazingly good shape! Thanks for sharing this. Makes you wonder how much other stuff is laying around in lakes and swamps.

Maybe I oughta check my pond! Oh that's right, it dried up year before last & nothing there but a couple old car tires.:mecry:
That tank is in good condition, the painted symbol still perfect! Tracks are stuck, but what could you expect.

What amazes me and irritates me at the same time is that the tank sat under water for 60 years and comes out looking half decent, you leave one of your tractors out in the weather for a year and it already has rust all over it, tell me that isn't fair.

I wonder if this is even a true story?

I have a tendency to believe it is true, I could be wrong though.
