In a previous post I wrote about wanting a tank to drive around town. Unfortunately, tanks tend to be out of the budget, and I don’t know of a used tanks surplus emporium. But now that’s okay, because someone has figured out how to convert your car into a tank. You use the frame and engine of your car as is. You drive up on the tank tread assembly, remove the tires, make some changes to how it’s all connected, and then your car drives like a tank. The video below illustrates this.
My Russian translation skills are somewhat lacking, but I’m pretty sure somewhere in the video they said the equivalent of “this is one of the coolest things ever”.
BTW, if you do this, you’re on your own. That would probably void your warranty. And I’m pretty sure the highway department would frown upon such use, at least on major roads. But in the deer woods, this would be great!

I wonder if my wife would approve … hmmmmm. 🙂
I’m pretty sure that would have a very low WAF (wife acceptance factor)…

i wonder how they were able to get that to turn as well as it did? If only i could speak russian! 🙂
In Arkansas, this is a little over the top. However, we have seen people do things far worse with their vehicles.
btw, must all cool stuff be considered irrelevant due to a low WAF??? 😡
what has the world become?
Over the top?!? What has the world become??? This would be uber-cool, even in Arkansas!
BTW, cool stuff should not be automatically considered irrelevant due to a low WAF. But for married men it should be part of the equation. Some things are worth the extra headache / compromises, some aren’t. Just part of the equation, my friend. 🙂
Nice post and this enter helped me alot in my college assignement. Thanks you for your information.
Hey, Mr. WP Themes (if that’s your real name), learning to spell correctly would also help you “alot” in your college “assignements”.
I need to get one of those, you could cut off the top of the car and put a wooden “tank” frame around it and spray paint it, that would be epic for paintball and hunting.
