Russian Self made "Hummer"

http://englishrussia.com/index.php/2...f-made-hummer/

Recently we had a Russian guy from Kazakhstan who has built a Rolls Royce Phantom at home out of old Mercedes car. Seems that this trend is getting stronger. Now meet a Hummer car clone.
It can’t be called full replica as it is more likely a Russian approach for the Big Agressive Car that can be used to climb mountains, to sow and plough thru the fields, to clean snow and mud and even to… drive underwater.
“I have only one oxygen mask that can be used while you are driving by the bottom of the lake/river. Once we were crossing some lake and the car got stuck in the bottom mud. My passenger didn’t have a mask so he had to swim out to the surface to get some air and get back down to me to help releasing it.”, says the owner.

From the pictures it looks like he's got an extendable snorkle...how cool is that! Nice heater or is that what the thing runs on too..could also be his fuel? Or a back up fuel source.

i always thought hummers would be good off road but didnt know what they meant exactly until i took mine out.

Holy crap!! its is awesome! i kept thinking i was going to get high centered but they it just kept going. if anyone gets a chance to ride with someone that has one take them up on it. i love mine and will try and snap some pics next time we go out.

i think the final axle ratio is 5.13s or something close when you take into account the geared hub so hill climbs are not a big deal
