The best part about finding this homebuilt snowmobile (thanks to Jason Davis of course)? The one shown here isn’t even the craziest one!

It's like an Air Boat made love to the idea of a lack of safety…

    Is his nickname "Stumpy"?

    These Hoonskis are pretty ingenious, the vodka hasn't limited their mechanical skills or imagination all that much. I just looked at the page, and I dig the roto-tiller contraption (see what I did there?), and the way it breaks down and fits in a dinky little trailer. The above pictured fatal eggbeater arm-remover is the stuff of nightmares and I want one now, even though it rarely snows here in the Arizona desert. I just want to put it in front of the house and use it to scare people. Start it up occasionally to piss off the neighbors.

      Hell, couldn't you just run one of those things across sand?

        Well, the sand here is covered with real nasty pricker bushes, cacti, rocks, snakes and the like. The eggbeater would just kill you and all the fun would end right there. But, it would be a sick idea to build a sandrail for the dunes with a huge prop powered by, I dunno, a Porsche flat six. Big fat tires. Disc brakes all around. You'd have to wear a WWI leather Snoopy helmet with those nifty goggles. No silk scarf, tragic things would happen when it got sucked into the propeller.

          A dealership I was with for a while used to do business with a custom shop that did all of their wheels, leather, nav units, and other adds. I went to pick up a vehicle once, and while waiting for it to be pulled around, noticed a pretty sweet sand rail in their showroom area. It sported a much more conventional means of power than your Porsche flat six/prop combo, but one that I had never seen before. The ever present VW transaxle was there, but hanging out behind it was an RX7 rotary. I'd always seen an air cooled flat four back there so the Wankel took me by surprise a bit. It was kind of cool though, seeing something a little different in that application.

      Did you see the last one at the end of the page, another eggbeater limb remover? A snow tube with no obvious means of control and an open prop on the engine! The gas can was a plastic antifreeze jug.

        I saw that and was amazed. There has yet to be enough Stolichnaya distilled and bottled to get me on that thing.
