You can buy this crazy thing as a kit, or turn key. Uses a hydrostatic garden tractor rear end (Tuff Torq) a 305 V8 (or you can add whatever you like) I watched was one these get assembled on GearsTV I have to say the kit is impressive! (but so is the price) want one turn key? That'll set ya back about 14 grand :)

If you look REAL CLOSE there is a radiator mounted on the rear.

Yeah I'd imagine not too many people will drop 13+ grand on a bar stool :)

But still, you have to admit, it's well executed! :)

Back about 20 years ago a guy in Rochester, Minnesota had an older JD 100 or 200 series on a stretched frame. He stuffed a Buick 3.8 V6 into it and rode around the neighborhood which was next to the RR tracks. He used it to push cars into his repair shop. He also had a walk behind snowblower with a Buick 3.8 V6.

It's too bad when folks have so much money and can't find something more beneficial to do with it.
It's just a Chevy 305, What else would you do with it? :trink40:

Radiator, yes, seat belt, no.

If one of the new federal government "looking our for our best interests" sees this seat belts will be required, and a higher mandatory health premium will be required from any planning to "drive" one. On the other hand, these could be made available for free, along with a 5th of whiskey, to old guys like me. This should reduce the Social Security costs, which could save the program. In my case they'd have to force-feed the whiskey before trying to get me on-board.
