Default I saw this today and thought it was so cool I had to share it with you all.

This guy is a steelworker working on buildings for a living, but for fun he made this from scratch for his kid. It is not RC or motorized, but...
It’s all his own design, mostly made up as he went along, and is sized roughly 1/6th scale because he made it to fit a G.I. Joe. It has solar powered headlights that come on automatically at dark, operating doors and rear hatch, all with working latches. All the seats fold down and the rear cargo area has a compartment under the floor for stowage. It has a working sun roof. The dash gauges are detailed and the speedometer is actually a working thermometer. It has a good looking fake drive shaft and axles. Full sprung suspension, front and rear. Working steering linkage. Hand driven bumper winch. Tow hitch. ALL FROM REPURPOSED OR HAND MADE PARTS! License # MAD OLE 2018
The bottom picture also shows the hands that made the "Jeep".

That is some work! I know I wouldn't have been able to let go of something like that when I was a kid.
