    Default Ridiculous Horse Powered Car - Now I've seen everything

    Does anyone know if this is a practical joke? I mean, are they kidding? Is the horse just supposed to go on the treadmill forever?? Now I've seen everything.

    Why, that's genius. Sure beats the hell out of, I don't know, like, just sitting on the horse and steering. Or something. That's really been my biggest complaint about all my horses so far; there just aren't enough windows to keep clean on my horses in their natural state.

    Thanks for the injection of humor, guys! I wasn't sure what to make of it. I mean these people must have a lot of time on their hands to have thought this up!

    Give a bunch of guys a welder, a pile of scrap metal, and a case of beer and wonderous things can happen!

    BTW, wonder what the EPA mileage rating is?

    I would hate to see what the emmissions from such a vehicle would do to the driver in that setup!

    Looks like the perfect thing for people who have to lunge their horse for hours before they dare ride at a show...

    That would be a great idea for a human treadmill/car! The only problem is, how do you drive and watch tv??

    Frank--what would happen if you added the miraculous Duct Tape to that equation? Perpetual motion machine, perhaps?

    Naw, but WD-40 might work!

    Remember the redneck rule of thumb: If it moves and shouldn't, use Duct Tape; if it doesn't move and should, use WD-40!
