Military vehicles

These are the military vehicles we currently have available to hire.  We run tank rides at a few shows throughout the country in the spring and summer months, there is still some availability to attend some more.

You can also hire our vehicles for birthday parties, corporate events, as transport to your wedding or prom (within a 20 mile radius of Stamford) or for tv, promotional videos or films.
