Rat Rod Tank is Perfect for Your Daily Commute Everywhere

For some, driving a rat rod is the perfect way of transportation. You build it out of what you find in the scrapyard, it looks cool, you get your hands dirty and get high on gasoline fumes every time you get in it... or near it. Excellent if you are a broke petrolheah. But what you do if you live in some remote areas where smooth asphalt is not quite available, say some Canadian small town up in the mountains?

The recipe is quite simple; it involves puting tracks on it and it goes like this: instead of taking the old truck’s chassis out to chop it down and make the car sit lower for added coolness, you take the chassis out and throw it away, or put it somewhere safe for another crazy project.

Then you start searching for a WW II Bren Gun Carrier (the 1944 version will do just fine), chop its top part and marry the truck with what's left of it. Make sure you get rid of all the armored parts because the whole thing weighs about 13 tons.

For the engine you might as well leave the standard Ford V8 that comes with the Carrier, although you’ll have to roll using only 85 hp. Not sure if the guy in the video here used the same one, but it does sound awesome. Why don’t you check it out, eh?
