Video: In Russia, Mud & Water is Deeper.

I just landed on this video somehow and found it fairly awesome.  Around the 1 minute mark it begins getting damp good.

Ok, now it’s your turn. Post up links in the comment box to your favorite off road youtube videos. If they are good, I’ll add them into this post for the ultimate 4×4 video bonanza!

Yes: Throw That On A 4×4 Chassis.

El Camino 4x4

Whenever you mix free time and El Camino’s, you can guarantee that something amazing will happen.   In this case,  the mid 70′s body style El Camino that everyone loves to hate became a 4 wheel drive monster.  The brush guard was functional and ready for some action, and so was the solid front axle.  In all honesty, it was put together fairly well.  Under more normal conditions, the body would have been connected to the frame with drywall screws and tie-down straps.  This one was far better.  It used real metal and wasn’t a giant turd like most 4×4 chassis swaps that I have seen.  While I can’t picture myself in this vehicle, I have great appreciation for anybody that puts their time and effort into a car.   So cheers to you mid 70′s El Camino 4×4 chassis swap dude, and to a job well done!

Your Car is Swell, but it Doesn’t Have 7 FEET OF ARTICULATION!

While cruising through the sand pits near the internet’s automotive superhighway, I came across something way more rad than your new patch-covered jean jacket.  It’s quite odd, has 4 wheels,  and comes complete with an engine, thus heavily qualifying it as an automotive oddity this week.   Let’s stop for a moment and consider all the things in life that you have ever thought about running over.  Watermelons, crush em. Dirt piles, crushed.  Couches, crush. A wagon full of teddy bears, crushed. A pool full of pudding, crush.  They are ALL now able to be crushed thanks to the guys in this video.  With 7 feet of articulation, it doesn’t matter what’s in front of you, it’s getting crushed.
