OK, i'll bite. What the hell was a jackrabbit drive in the 50's?
Solution to problem is sell the house to elmer fudd.
Remove the obvious to reply. Experienced and reliable

Hair clippings, your own or especially some combed off your dog or cat. Put
it on the ground near the plants you want to preserve and they will leave it
alone. I learned this from a garden show on PBS or HGTV so I can't directly
speak to its effectiveness but it sounds pretty low impact if it does work.
Leave the lawn untreated, the rabbits will keep it self mowing. I doubt
your hairy enough to cover the yard but if you had a dog like mine,
obtaining hair is not a problem.
The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. If so, make an
opening and they will move out in a couple weeks.
Around my house, the cat takes care of the problem whether I like it or not.
If the rabbit is big enough, the cat might just make friends instead.
Leave them. Home buyers are generally a googly-eyed bunch and the
sight of baby bunnies will get their hormones going and they'll love
your house. [When I first saw this house 20 years ago the old
couple next-door was feeding squirrels. Their were literally 40-50
squirrels climbing all over their bird feeder every time we came to
look at this house. We thought they were cute. The old folks have
long since died, and now I feed the birds--- but my pellet gun keeps
the local squirrel population to one or less.]
Just as a heads up, that is probably illegal. Once you've already
bent the law by trapping the critters- you might as well drown them.
[though the most humane way to dispatch them is probably to hold them
by their head & give them a shake]
