Ironsmith Kogoro Kurata took the body of a Fiat 500 and put it on an old set of Cat tracks. Tortoise-timed trips to the store, and hilarity, ensued.

    Well, at the risk of getting “so lets see your rebodied bulldozer pics”..

    Not a very practical rebody- hard to see the working area of the blade. Something like a VW bus, or other “hoodless” vehicle would have made it much easier to work with- even in the vid (1:19) you can see the operator way out the window trying to see what the blade is doing.

    But still, something different! NICE paint on it too….

    That made me LOL, Volkemon. Cute.

    Yeah, the build is kind of goofy all-around — nothing really practical or I bet tremendously useful about. It’s more blog fish food than anything else (and I decided to take the bait ’cause the lunacy of it made me chuckle).
