    Pretty impressive but didn't need the August Rush epic music. I would worry about getting it stuck and having to hoist it out of somewhere it's wedged itself into. The winch is a great feature though. I could also see these being used as rescue vehicles in avalanche and mountain rescue ops.

    Thanks Jon...you plan on picking one up after this winter?

    Puts me in mind of the Weasel that was for sale at a local wrecking yard years ago for 150 bucks. No engine but used a Studebaker flathead 6 of which I had one. Got there just as it was leaving with someone else. Dang it!

    From the looks of it it has a duel drive, the track cleats look to be mounted so they can be skewed slightly by slowing one drive or the other briefly.

    Number 5 is alive ! funny that is what the vehicle reminded me of when I first saw it. I would want a forward shroud or deflector though for running in that deep snow

    REALLY COOL! even icy cool.
    Not a "real bushie" as one would never allow a following person be hit by a branch loaded with compression.

    Did I see the tiny luxury house on tv? That would indeed be luxury in -40 deg.
