I'm lost...what's going on here?
It's not wtf as in 'wtf did they do to that car', but 'wtf are they doing on a lake not in that Branson car?'

Well, if it's a car, and something about what it's doing makes you go WTF (be it looks or whatever), I guess it goes in this thread...?

Not a photochop, it's a real vehicle. It's called the Rinspeed Splash, featured in a few magazines. Makes & Models did a nice feature on it a couple years ago.

www.bigfoot4x4.com is the website to check them all out. The one in question is number 5 I believe.

To answer the 1st question, yes it is possible. 2nd question, I have no idea, but I'd imagine it can move. The normal one - without the dual front wheels - can move, but does so relatively slowly for obvious reasons. Notice that the front wheels are doubled, but the backs aren't (I think you can tell, but maybe not). On most of the monster trucks, it's the rear wheels that turn, so doubling up the front isn't that big of a deal concerning mechanics.

This is a Ford Aerostar:



This is Bigfoot 5 video...

lol...I loved monster trucks when I was little. You have to have appreciation for something that large w/better acceleration than a ferarri. But this is a redneck with a Master's in Accounting
