    you gotta be shi**in me, who in there right mind would do something like this. I am watching the auction cause I gotta see what this thing ends up going for.

    Talk about maintenance, he's got the lifts cause the thing probably breaks down after every event.:dizzy:

    And oh yeah, you can pick up parts for this at the local Western dealer, yeah right !!!:dizzy: :dizzy:

    I think that is one VERY well engineered plow vehicle.

    He'll never get what he spent out of it, so even if it goes real high, it's still a deal if you ask me.

    I could find a LOT of uses for it myself!

    Its currently at $5100, and it will be worth every penny it ends up selling for.

    Its certainly NOT a joke!

    I recall that item from last year also. It is cool but what a white elephant! He could have bought the same thing professionally manufactured for less than the $96k he spent creating Frankenstein's truck :D

    If money was no issue I would build the same thing just for kicks but reality says no :p

    You have got to admit, it would be fun taking for it a spin down the street!

    I can see it now.. 'Would like your driveway snowblowed? I can put the snow on your roof or in neighbors yard across the street!.

    Imagine the clause in your contract.. Not responsibe for anything left in your driveway during a storm, including small vehicles.

    Ahh, but I am sure it is no match for a snowbe*r

    This guy is either single, or has the most understanding wife in the world.
    My wife gets ticked when my projects are in the garage for even 2 days.
    As much as I want to call this guy crazy, He's exactly like my grandpa. He would build this kind of stuff also. (I would test them). Like the go-cart I tested...Oh, tomorrow's the day you mount the brakes....:eek:

    the floating lawn chair and the Frankentruck reminds me of Rube Goldburg - the guy that complicated everything he built. I like the quote: "Everything in the design says quality" except that it looks like a lawn chair on a freakin' pontoon! for a mere $7100.00

    I had no idea that truck has been around the block so many times, I saw it for the first time the other day. I can imagine that no one will ever buy it. That lawn chair contraption would be easy to build and definately way cheaper than the amount they are asking.

    This guy is ALREADY a MILLIONAIRE. No need to wait!

    This is a case of a creative millionaire with a very ingenious and handy groundskeeper.
