"The Lord Humongous" Wheelchair

We wrote about fiery creations of Lance Greathouse before (second part of this article). This time he almost upped himself with the wicked fire-breathing... wheelchair:

"This chair started as parts from several different machines. It is constructed out of a Marine rescue Helicopter seat and an electric golf cart parts. It is all electric and has a top speed of 22MPH. It has several forms of steering and can climb just about any terrain easily.

It was made for the disabled person looking for something a little different, why drive something that looks like a medical device when you can drive something lethal?"


I hope this is 'shopped -
