The article focuses on the controversy over the decision of the Moody family in Nitro, West Virginia to sell their heirloom tank to an Indiana-based armor museum. Patriarch Jack Moody acquired the World War I-era tank, which was modeled after a Renault FT-17, from a Virginia VFW post in 1987 and put it on public display. According to Nitro Mayor Rusty Casto, the Moodys told him the tank was being refurbished. Later, the tank turned up at the Ropkey Armor Museum in Crawfordsville, Indiana.
