Arnold Schwarzenegger crushes limo with tank he uses to keep kids in school

Yahoo Entertainment

Arnold Schwarzenegger and his tank made an appearance on Jay Leno's Garage, Thursday. The tank is a 1951 M-47 Patton with a Chrysler V12 gas engine that produces 810 horsepower.

In 1991, Austria decommished the tank and offered it to Schwarzenegger for free - as long as he paid for shipping. Schwarzenegger was happy to drop $20,000 in order to ship the 50 ton tank because in 1965 he spent a year driving that exact tank in the Austrian military. He said,  "That's exactly the same tank with the 331 number on it. M-47. It's exactly the tank."

So what does Schwarzenegger use his massive tank for? He said, "I bring kids out here from the after-school programs. When they stay in school, their reward is to come out here and to drive tanks with me."

Leno and Schwarzenegger took the tank for a ride and even crushed a stretch limo. It looked like the two Hollywood legends had a pretty good time.

Jay Leno's Garage airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on CNBC.
