Made Famous By: Shawn Nelson
Practical Application: Was used for a low-speed chase in San Diego, Calif., in 1995 that lasted just over 20 minutes. Nelson then got the tank stuck on a highway median as he tried to pull it into oncoming traffic. He was shot and killed by police.

On one hand, stealing a tank seems risky. On the other, if what you're trying to get away from is your life, it starts to make sense.
