    1000 HP, 1500 ft-lbs torque - Tank Engine

    OK this isn't exactly a kit but this guy built a custom hot rod (if you can call it that) using a M47 Patton Tank Engine (V12) from WWII. He mated it to the tranny of a grayhound bus. I think his metal work is really impressive as well.

    I wish I knew the guy and I could lure him into building something interesting... the raw talent is obviously there but it would need a little refinement to fit my tastes!!!
    What usage is there for this kind of monster???

    The only thing it won't pass is the gas station

    Holy Jesus!

    I think it should be classified as Darth Vader's Ultimate Torpedo! I would love to hear how it sounds!

    Lol!
