Canadian mechanic’s car-turned-snowmobile is peak Canada
The only thing that would make this car more Canadian is if it apologized for running red lights.
Canadian mechanic Todd Anderson has turned a 2007 diesel Smart Car into a full-fledged snowmobile. Oh, Canada.
Anderson, who lives in Ottawa, didn’t have any specific reason for creating the Smartmobile, he told CTV News. It was “just a thought that came to me,” he said, “and [it] seemed like the right thing to do.”
“The whole point of the exercise was to see if it could be done,” Anderson said.
The car was a local secret until Anderson’s friend posted a picture of his creation on Reddit, where it went viral.
Anderson said that the car, which cost about $7,000 and took a month and a half to build, is “pretty wild.” Wild indeed.
