    That kid goes to my school! He's driving it around in Flint, too! I wouldn't want to keep that in Flint, unless he wants someone to vandalize/steal it.

    That's pretty impressive. The '420' kind of ruins it though

    Not to be an ass, but what tanks did they use in films like Saving Private Ryan?

    Wouldve been AWESOME if when he stepped out at the end and pushed a remote for a "beep" like a car alarm.

    Out of my mind, brb never.
    Yeah, you never know when that one detail will pop up and throw you out of your suspension of disbelief. I hate when that happens, especially when its an otherwise good movie.

    There's this guy I used to have class with. His brother used to drive a black Ford Econoline van like that he had got for like $1500 bux. He had rigged up an something that would play "help me, help me!!!" over and over through some small alarm speaker.

    He'd park it at the freshman lot at his high school and open the sliding door and play that "help me" shit. Some stupid freshman would walk by, poke their head in, and they'd come running up with ski masks on and throw them in. Then they'd take them for a spin around the high school. lol

    Another time I saw them over by the city park just riding around and him and his buddy were just ridding around with ski masks on blasting death metal music.

    WTF is wrong with the youth.

    I'm bumping this thread because I met the kid who built this tank on Friday night.

    It was at a 'party' (I don't call it a real party because...it sucked, basically..anywho). It was a theme party where you were supposed to dress up as your favorite cartoon/animated TV/game character. He came as one of the Grand Theft Auto guys with a 1911 BB gun.

    Another kid brought an airsoft AK which was played with by a lot of people. I mentioned to another kid that I was going to get a real one myself. The panzer kid said that he had a Russian AK he'd sell me. I called BS on him having a Russian AK. Panzer kid said he got it from some guy who didn't know its worth. He originally went to him to get some weed but the guy didn't have any but offered him the AK instead. :rolleyes:

    I didn't talk to him for the rest of the night. Douchebag.

    Could be a SAIGA, but I doubt it. The kid is probably just retarded.
