I wonder in some of those shots, it almost looks like it could have a problem with the fenders. :wallbanging:

It is neat but I've seen ones from 80+ years ago with the same idea. It could be a real good thing for emergency vehicles in snowy areas.

That looks pretty good for high snow areas.   Good for ranchers and farmers in snow.  Fun for the rest of us too.

Looks like a great idea, but what keeps the tires from spinning on the tracks when they get icy or full of snow themselves?

I can't buy those! I'd never be able to blame road conditions again for getting out of going to work!

Yeah, you'd have to come up with something really far-fetched, like a pulled groin muscle or something. They'd never believe that.
