Thanks for the pic. It did bring a smile to my face. Somebody had a lot of time and ambition to build such an unusual machine.

I have seen several... They were common on small farms in the 70's.

I personally liked the model that had the soft top to let the sun in when it's not too hot out.

Man I bet some of the Edsel purist restoration types are rather freaked out by that.

Looks like a good advertisement for SpawMaxwell though.

Didn't hurt the car any, Look close and you can see the attachments are all fake, like wood 2 x 4's and or cardboard and plywood. All the junk just sorta clamps onto car and looks weird.
