Testing a 50's or so National mower tractor's driveline before finishing the engine mount, the reverse burnout was unintentional but very amusing to watch, will be my uncle's butt buggy for the engine/tractor shows, it will be painted up nice come spring.

That will make a great butt buggy! You could even add some fenders and a hood if you want a little more flair! Thanks for the video. :thumbs:

Hey, thanks guys so much, he really likes it, has been needing one for a while, engine/tractor shows is the vacation from work so why walk on your day off ? we both had the day off today and figured why not get started on it, everything was froze up, including the frount wheels, clutch handle sleeve snapped off and took 2 1/2 hours to free up then welded back on, looked at a hood or two before it got dark and thought over a few things,
I will keep up with the pictures, and thanks for edited it olcowhand,

Yes, that was one of the features that made me feel really safe for him, made to mow hillsides so it has something of a 26 inch wheelbase and low center of gravity, makes very tight turns, he drove 2 feet circles around me.

That's a neat little buggy. Yeah, a cooler carrier would be 'cool'. Or a little trailer if he buys things, something to carry things in.
