    I dunno . . . fixed slats to protect the windows seem to be a bad idea. They leave the windows vulnerable to any small projectile. Also, it looks a bit top-heavy and prone to rollover. I’d have to modify it for airtight shutters and activated carbon air filtration, with an option for self-contained breathing with scrubbers and bottled oxygen.

    well, considering this thing seems to be a very Burning Man item, I’d recommend outfitting it with blacklight spotlights, beanbag chairs and a hookah.

    Now the real question comes up, I wonder how much it would cost to build yourself

    This thing’s been around a while – it’s even been on Monster Garage if I recall, it’s still pretty rad. Here’s a link to the ‘donk’s main site: http://www.jl421.com

    I think this would be ideal to drive the kids to school. In addition to the Tahoe or Suburban.

    It’s the next soccer mom transportation.
