As I said on the first page, most of the historic tanks at Bovington Tank Museum, in the UK, are quite active and regularly used in shows and displays. It even has one of the oldest surviving combat tanks from WW1 - over 100 years old and still drives!

SEVERODONETSK, Ukraine – When three Russian-backed separatists with Kalashnikovs turned up at Yuliy Krasiuk’s shop last month, he told them he didn’t want their protection. “There’s no-one I need protecting from except for you guys,” he recalls telling them.
He was right.
The gunmen got angry with his response and plundered Krasiuk’s shop of used consumer electronics. They took his car and detained him for two days until his wife paid nearly $2,000 for his release.
