So I ran across this in our local Craigslist this evening and I thought it was worth sharing. You gotta love it when the seller identifies their product as "Very Fast and Dangerous".

In case the ad goes bye bye:

 

"Built from 1999 Buick Regal 3.8 Supercharged V-6
Engine Cradle and motor from car.
Tractor Seat
two master cylinders for steering.
Very Fast and Dangerous
Fully functioning engine.
Can be used to tow around cars"

You gotta wonder if a helmet is thrown in compliments of the seller. "Ring, ring, yes I'd like to purchase a life insurance policy."

Hmmm, looks like a great way to see if your wife still loves you...
Honey? Can I buy this?

If she says "Yes, I want you to". You are in trouble.

Why???

Why not?  Don't you want to mow your yard at 158 MPH? 

 

The only problem is that he doesn't through in a mower deck.  I wonder how much torque deck spindles could take before blowing through the roof?

Where is your imagination? Can't you picture 4 or 5 sets of gang mowers being towed by this rig? Big field? No problem. Just one pass and you are done. Of course not much for seat time then.

Let's see, if I factor in the weight of an average GT user, factor in the speed of the motor on wheels thingy mabob and wind resistence, consider the angle of the turn and finally look at the trajectory of launch I'd say that machine could launch one of us a good 100 feet under optimal conditions.......LOL!
