I probably should’ve asked just how many winter project these guys had lined up when I chatted with them at SEMA, because right now, they’ve done…lemme see here…at least twice what I was expecting. At least. There are projects in the works, like the snowmobile-powered Triumph and the Power Wheels Camaro to finish up. There’s the Honda Odyssey ATV and the “Senderella” Power Wheels Jeep to check up on, upgrade, or fix broken parts on. But noooo…it’s winter in Idaho, which means your activities are limited to maybe three things. Since I don’t see any liquor bottles around and we don’t want to know why all of the children in a 500-mile circle share a birthday in September, it’s back to the shop to make more mental creations.
So, here’s a fun idea: take the Power Wheels Jeep concept, and give it four-wheel drive. Sounds like a ball, am I right? Now give it a KTM-sourced, 990cc engine, the differentials and hubs from a Kawasaki Brute Force quad, and a reverser from the wonderful lands of eBay. 100 horsepower, four-wheel-drive Power Wheels Jeep-based adult toy.
What the hell is in the water in the northern tip of Idaho?!
