    Screwy Idea for New Disneyland Attraction Ride Vehicle

    While stumbling around the Internet, I came across this very intriguing vehicle for traveling across snowdrifts. It was invented in the 1920's and was known as the Fordson Snow Motor:

    And YouTube has fascinating footage of it in action -- the Fordson Snowmobile

    The look and movement of this thing really intrigues me. Any ideas on how the Imagineers could draw inspiration from this concept and create a unique ride vehicle?

    The Russians pursued this vehicle design the most. Although there was limited success with the vehicle, it really only seemed decent in marshy or tundra areas. to this day the design is considered one of the Top 10 Failed Military Inventions.


    This here looks exactly like your 1920's Fordson tractor but the Russian version. I'm not sure I'd feel safe making a ride out of a concept like this, nor how fun that ride would be. What would you even call it? Mater's Borscht Harvesters?
