Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of the most charismatic guys around. He could take a ridiculous movie like Commando and turn it into an action classic with his sheer force of will. Despite being in semi-retirement, Schwarzenegger appears to be having more fun than ever. His latest stunt is raffling off a chance to hang out with him for a day for charity and crush stuff in his tank. To make things even cooler, the star is proving what the heavy vehicle can do by running a variety of objects over in his latest video.

If you want to hang out with the Terminator, time is running out. There is a little over a day left to enter as of this writing. A single entry costs $10, but multiple entries get you stuff like shirts and autographed items. The money goes to After-School All-Stars, a charity that provides after-school programs. The winner gets two tickets to Los Angeles and a day with the former Governator.

Scroll down for the videos that combine a M47 Patton tank, Schwarzenegger, destruction and some awesome '80s jams. What more could you possibly want?

      Tank? But I thought Arnold Schwarzenegger always said, "get to the chopper. Do it now!!!"

      He didn't actually buy it I don't believe, and if he did it wasn't for much. That's actually the exact tank he served with while he was in the Austrian Army. It spent a few years here in Columbus, Ohio at a shopping center where Arnold opened up a Planet Hollywood. After that closed, it was moved to a small private museum near by called Motts Military Museum. A few years ago Arnold reacquired the tank and brought it back to California to use for charity events.

        Yeah, I was going to say that I recall reading years ago that he already owned a tank and it was the very one he was in while serving in the Austrian Army. It makes more sense now.

      Great... so buy a tank, and then expense out its cost by setting up some bogus charity... 90% of donitions go to "administrative costs" and maybe, just maybe 10% goes to helping someone. Yay! :rolleyes:

      Arnold is bigger than life and the embodiment of the American Dream. He emigrated to this country with very little money to his name and two words of English. Then he went on to conquer the world of pro bodybuilding, become the biggest action star, marry a Kennedy, and finally become the governor of a major state. While I don't agree with his politics, I cannot dispute his awesomeness.

        Comedian Bill Burr says it the best. Arnold is a great man. He becomes famous for working out, moves to the US, becomes a famous action hero despite the fact that no one can really understand him, marries into American royalty and becomes governor of a state he can't pronounce. How many lifetimes would it take for anyone else to achieve this?

        Maria Shrivers (Kennedy) is not or will not ever be poor. Arnie was rather dickish though (pun intended).

        When you're running over stuff or no one is in the turret to control it, its best to have the turret in the travel locked position, or you run the risk of damaging the turret traversing system or gun stabilization parts .
