    "Unbelievably still loaded with shells and machine guns, 1944 T34-85 coming out of deep storage."

    500 hp 38.8 liter V12 Diesel engine starts up. 48,950 T-34-85s made! They don't say in what country the barn was located in which this was originally found. Someone in the video comments said the markings are Bulgarian. Someone else said it might be Czech made because it has a "Notek light" on it.

    Not sure about "barn find" part - there is another tank parked on the dirt road where the main subject of the video is backing out.
    Cool shots from inside the tank - looks like the driver is trying to impress the girl by taking her on a joy ride.
    Hey baby, want to ride by tank?
