Man Finds $2.5MILLION Worth of Gold STASHED in Most Random Place Ever

If only all of us could be so lucky as this dude!

Nick Mead, 55, is a collector of sorts. What he collects probably costs him a pretty penny too.

However, what he never expected was for his purchase to pay him back.

Mead procures military vehicles.

In a recent deal he purchased ‘an army lorry and an Abbot self-propelled gun for a Type-69 tank, a Chinese variant of the T54 developed by Russians and sold to Iraq to use in the 1991 Persian Gulf War.’

After receiving the tank he found five gold bullion bars worth more than $2.5 MILLION stashed in the fuel tank.

Mead upon his discovery of the gold said, “We didn’t know what to do. You can’t exactly take five gold bullion bars down to Cash Converters without questions being asked, so we called the police.”

Nick and his mechanic Todd Chamberlain, who assisted in the discovery, have a theory about how the gold got there. They believe it was looted by Iraqi soldiers in Kuwait during the Gulf War.

If you found this stash of gold, what would you do?
