Mythbusters attempted to turn a car into a pancake with the help of 1,000 pounds of ANFO (ammonium nitrate fuel oil) and a giant steel plate which resulted in a ginormous explosion and a really spectacular shockwave. Seeing the whole thing in high speed, you can see the shockwave grow like a bubble beyond the blow up.
