Stumbled upon this rental service. Drive A Tank - Tank Driving, Car Crushing, Machine Gun ...
Might be a better stress reliever than typical psychiatric counseling for about the same money. They also have some package deals allowing you to destroy something with a tank and machine gun, then bury it with a tracked excavator.
And if you win big in Las Vegas and have a hankering to crush something with an Abrahams might I recommend:Crush A Car With A Tank! | Battlefield Vegas

I can't say that I've ever run over a car with a Abrams, but I might or might not have *accidentally* knocked over half an Afgani's house with one.
Well, I'm pretty sure that screamin blue-hoody boy needs a good ass-whuppin'...

I have never driven an Abrams but I have run over a car with an M-60 Back in 64. It left tank tread marks on the roof of the car.
Having been a platoon sgt in a tank company I have had the pleasure of training with both the M60 and the M1A1 Abrams. I like the room inside the M60, but the awesome fire control of the Abrams. I can tell you this, I can think of a lot of things I would rather do than use it as a car crusher.
The M 60s of my day were first generation. The diesels were a vast improvement over the gasoline engined M-48s but the fire controls were basically mechanically cammed
to compute superelevation. About one RCH better than WW2 and Korea but could put a first round hit inside a 12 inch bull at 1200 meters with the tank sitting still.
The gun and sight controls on modern M-60s are a world improved over that along with the ability to fire accurately on the move. I am certain that the Abrams are at least that and more.
During the Gulf war, the M-60s proved themselves superior to anything they faced and the Abrams were simply bigger, faster, and a more powerful gun.
In less than a hundred years tanks had gone from being off road mobile howitzers with direct fire capability at 5 MPH, to as fast as jeeps with tremendous range and fire power.
