In Germany, there's a little town called Beerfelde where men and women can get a taste of what it's like to joy ride in a giant, 600-horsepower old Soviet tank. At this “Tank Driving School,” you can even earn your tank-driving license.

This little-boy-fantasy-come-true experience costs about $200 for 40 minutes. Don helmets, pull levers to maneuver the former war vehicle with very limited visibility, and pay extra to crush cars. All in all, it's a rewarding experience for desk jockeys and paper pushers alike. In uncertain times, it might just be the new middle-aged-crisis dream car.
