Thumbs up Wanna buy a tank? head to Finland.

The Finnish Defence Forces is getting a rid of some old scrapmetal..

If you have ever dreamed of buying a Tank, now you can... no catch....
none... but they are old corroded Charioteers and Comets...
few Sturmgeschütz III Ausführung G wrecks as well.
[URL="http://www.mil.fi/liite/Psv-huutokauppa_luettelo_ENG.pdf"]
have the document about it.[/URL] (PDF format)

if you ask me, i can't see how anyone else than museums would be interested.
perhaps some private collector, or for foregin armies for anti-armor tests etc...
