• So you can either sit on the rear axle, or behind it. Ignoring the handling, I bet the ride is as funny as the looks.

    I bet the owner has never removed the soup cans by hand before.

  • The more I look at it the more confused I get. The intake that goes… some where. The rear that supposedly articulates. But most of all the front suspension/steering. It all turns together like a radio flyer wagon, which as every kid who's turned at speed can attest, is pretty much the perfect steering setup. The steering shaft, im assuming its that rod over the engine, goes to the random rusted thing that looks like a motorcycle gas tank on its nose, and then… somehow attaches to the big arms that come off the back of the front axle. In trying to figure it out I just noticed the rear suspension. They cut the leaf spring in half. I said ok, bugeye sprites use quarter elliptical springs… But they don't have shackles at the back. which is when I noticed the rods heading forward from the rear axle. This thing really does have 4 wheel steering, sort of. The rear pivots as far as the shackles can move, and twist. Pro tip here folks, shackles shouldn't twist. I will give them credit, the fact that it works at all means they got a few things right. But the basic plan was so so bad, I'm impressed by how bad a plan this it.

    Thank you so much for showing this DT, it really is amazing, not good, not at all, but still amazing.

    • I think you will find that the two pipes on the intake are plumbed to the propane valve, which lives under the dash area. I will be generous, and assume that this was a nod to safety (yeah, sure haa haa haa haaa)

    • Ok, so thats one thing that makes sense.

      I have to assume that before anyone has ever started this they first have to say the magic words, "hold my beer, this is gunna be awesome" then said beer holder gets soup cans shot at them

  • Not much to add to the conversation except the car was likely built before 1968 when LSD was finally classified as being illegal.

    The "Just be sure to remove the soup cans (probably used to stop spiders from finding their way into the engine) before engaging the starter unless you want to spend the next 30 minutes searching the surrounding area for your soup cans." piece is my new fave DT line. But given the rate you guys top yourselves, it won't last long at the top. Thanks for the visual of the perplexed and very stoned owner.

  • There is some cool features cockpit looks to be styled after the Hydroplanes of the 50's AKA Thunderboats hard to say if this really get's it or is a hand full, Or if the rear seat is to kill your mate or to just scare the piss out of them ….!
