Tank Owners

So of course this guy is from Texas!...the part I like is when he demo's the gun and the leo's roll up. I'm sorry but if I'm in a patrol car I'm not rolling up to a tank to see whats going on

Here is a pretty good collection of tanks and artillery in Virginia. They have "Tank Days" where they will bring out one of the museum's tanks for a demo which often involves a tank-against-car scenario...

They used two tanks out of the Ca collection to test the interlaced phone book myth on Mythbusters.

That's the Gasser family. I used to race motocross with the owner's sons. Very cool guys but they never would take me for a ride in one. Says they were seriously regulated on certain things. We did however haul ass in a R1 powered Rhino. It's about 10 minutes from Tillery's.

Always the loved the chaffee tank. It's like a little sports car in the tank community. But then again, an M1 would do laps around it.

Dude please. Done constantly in Desert Storm and OIF I until Command decided to lighten up on the people.

For James Garner, that was the climax of the movie. for a US tanker in Baghdad, that was a Tuesday afternoon.




This video we all had to watch before going over during mobilization, about soldiers using vigilante justice and public perception. This tank is about to crush a looters car as punishment.
