Pop had a huge surprise when he came home from vacation and found that the boys had renovated his car.





Anything is possible to a farm boy with dad's tools.

It looks inoperable and like it's simply a parade float.  

I see no hydraulic lines, tracks look to be on wheels?, and everything looks a little too lightly built for heavy use.

 

I'm thinking they didn't really touch the car when doing this.

A loader and backhoe make the lines of this Edsel flow

It comes with two tracks to give it traction to go

The company name on the bucket it sports

Says it's a construction company by what Google reports

Decked out in nice yellow paint so bright

Flashing lights on the roof draw attention to this site

Made for show at parades and exhibitions I would guess

For to put it to work I would think would cause stress

On too many parts and things that could brake

It's a one of a kind creation that someone decided to make

Enjoy the result for what it is - a marriage of parts

From a car and a hoe - definitely one for the arts

And who knows perhaps someday someone with more money than me

Will buy it and give it a new home in a basement as a thing of beauty
