This would make a great present for the upcoming holidays! Ask all of your family to pitch in!

That museum is about an hour from my house. If I had that kind of disposable income, I might consider going for a drive. The WW2 reenactment they do there is amazing as well.

The American Armor Foundation Museum (Danville,
Virginia) offers Turret rides for far less money.

Not as exciting, for sure, as the driving experience
but lots cheaper.

A friend of mine used to volunteer at the Aberdeen Proving Ground Museum. He got to drive an M3 halftrack that had to be moved for a public event.

That grin of his lasted for like 3 weeks.

Not far from my parents' place in Chelmsford.

Might pay a visit next time I'm up.

Going to have to pass on the "driving experience" though.

Little too pricey for me.

Hey, it is only the cost of a dozen good cigars or a couple of bottles of single malt. Disposable items are for the moment and good memories.

It is within my budget! Dang just on the other side of the country, that raises the cost a bit too high.

I don't know how much dosh you have, Shagnasty, but I wouldn't pay $750.00 USD for a bottle of single malt either…

"Tank driving programs on the M4 Sherman are a donation of $1,495.00 USD per driving participant aboard the tank for a one hour training experience that includes ground instruction, startup, driving instruction with our instructor, and YOU drive the M4 Sherman for 20 minutes on our tank driving grounds at the American Heritage Museum."
