Here's a Youtube video of an M3A1Stuart Light Tank starting up. Another video of the same Stuart Tank driving across a field and the tank coming to a stop and parking. I though the background in these videos seemed really familiar, then realized it is right next to the campground I stay at in Stowe when I go biking in northern VT.

One more great Stuart Tank video from the interior on the move giving a good view of the driver using the track braking levers to steer and stop the tank.
