You need a tank? Just call Drive-A-Tank, Minnesota's one-stop shop for all your tank-based needs.

You can use their vehicles to drive to the shops, you can use their vehicles to eat Snickers bars in, or you can use their vehicles to demolish a 150-year-old abandoned house.

"You pay us enough money and we'll destroy anything with our tanks," Markessa Baedke-Petersen, event coordinator for Drive-A-Tank, told The Huffington Post.

The event took place in the small city of Kasota, found about 70 miles southwest of Minneapolis, where tank lovers, demolition experts and dozens of media outlets gathered round to watch a British FV432 armored personnel carrier drive headlong into an old barn.

The unusual house-razing has piqued the interest of other run-down home owners, with another potential client already getting in touch with Drive-A-Tank.

"Somebody heard about this demolition and called us," Baedke-Petersen explained. "They said, 'Hey, you want to run a tank through a house down here in Iowa?' So we’re working it out."

The question is: does she have a outfit here in Britain? And if not, why not? Someone should get on this, ASAP. So if you've got a tank in your garage, let us know, because boy do we have a fun business opportunity for you...
