Have you ever been sitting in traffic on a major highway for hours, only to finely get to the bottle neck and find nothing there? Oh there had been, but the police had it cleared up 30 minutes ago. Or maybe you are driving down the road in the passing lane and come upon someone in a mini van running side by side with another idiot at 10 mph under the speed limit and refusing to get out of the way.
Sound familiar? Well now there is a way to relieve all that stress and pent-up emotion. How would you like to get behind the controls of a real heavy duty Sherman tank. That’s right for a relatively small fee, depending on how much damage you want to inflict, you can take control of a fully functional U.S. Military tank.
In fact you can not only drive over cars and trucks that are in your way, you can even blow them up with the fully functional 75 mm cannon. But if your frustration does not rise to that level you can cut that 87 Buick that is driving 20 mph to shreds with the personal touch of a .50 caliber machine gun mounted on the turret.
No, I am not kidding. Thanks to the efforts of a group of dedicated military collectors, you now have the ability to get behind the controls of a Sherman tank and put it through its paces. The price is not cheep, but considering what you paid for that last trip to Disneyland, or that last cruse the wife wanted to go on, it is pretty reasonable. Besides, who else do you know that can say they have blown up a mini van with a 75 mm cannon?
