No One Looks Cool On This Goofy Tracked SnowmobileS

Vendors at SEMA appear to have a strong yen for tracked vehicles, which might explain this "Snowmobile" from Canadian company TCZL that looks like an a/c unit with tracks, a seat, and bike handles.

The disadvantage of a regular Snowmobile is, while fast, you're unlikely to climb a steep grade or cover serious obstacles as they prefer gently rolling snow-covered fields. Unfortunately, the TZCL appears to only cover slopes up to 15 degrees and power from its 200cc single-cylinder engine will propel you to a max speed of just 20 mph.

Our photographer Curtis Walker tried to get the boxy transport to look more exciting by asking his lovely assistant to hop on top of it, but even she had trouble moving us to want one.

If that's not your speed, they've also got a tracked skateboard...
