Im guessing it got smashed in the rear, and he had a hayday with beer, a sawzall, and a welder?

My lawn mower. The steering wheel was plastic and had been cracked since the day i bought the mower.....the more i used it the worse the crack became until it finally broke in the middle of mowing one day. I clamped the vice grips on there to be able to finish mowing only to realize i liked them better than the actual wheel since i could position the away from me where i wasn't constantly whacking my knees....i have used it like that now for two plus years lol

My uncle has the same mower, broke his wheel too, welded on a tiny steel gocart wheel with an extension welded to a socket that fit the nut lol. Apparently those are bootyfab magnets. Ill get a pic next time I see it

For some reason I just want to see this thing roll down a large hill to its destruction. With no one in it of course.

Not to mention the lack of geometry and DOT approved rear lights. I talked my brother in law out of it and told him he would be super cool if he took the doors off his 86 suburban.... So he did. Haha

Last night we JB welded a scrap piece of .040 aluminum to a gen3 chevy oil aluminum oil pan that had been previously punched through. We pulled off a different broken oil pan and swapped this one in.
