This guy, who’s getting the job done. The Drive’s video guru Jason Sanchez spotted this homebrew rig on the road to Yangon in Myanmar. He recalls:

“This thing was basically a lawnmower engine. I was on the road in a van with three Burmese folks, my wife, my sister-in-law and her husband. We stopped at a place that sold pottery, but mostly we had to pee. I heard the loudest, craziest lawnmower sound, and down comes this clunker with a few guys on it. It was not fast. At all. Running might be faster than this. But it was so goddamn cool. Total ruckus-mobile. Looked like the driver was having the time of his life.”

Hero.
