PROJECT - Craig Bearmans Full Body Mini-Car

Have you ever seen something sitting around and immediately had a lightbulb moment "ah!  yes - that would be fantastic if I did XYZ with it!" - we hear you!  And so does Craig Bearman - just look at this incredible machine he's currently building.

When Craig, bouncing back from a stroke (you can learn more about his ongoing battle on his facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/craigandfranca/, saw this car from a merry-go-round he couldn't help but "Hot-Rod" it - with plans to shoehorn a massive 17hp petrol engine into where the original 50cc whipper snipper motor sat, this could just about the be scariest ride you're likely to ever come into contact with - and if you're offered a drive when Craig's finished, we'd certainly recommend wearing your brownest set of underwear!

Oh, and did we mention he's going to Turbo charge it?!
