Three-year-old driver + four-wheel ATV + one icy lake = winter fun

OK, it's actually a three-and-a-half year old. These things are important at that age. Also, an amazing amount of hand-eye coordination and arm control from someone who likely still gets excited over juice boxes. Then again, so does Jim Glickenhaus. » 5/20/11 1:00pm 5/20/11 1:00pm

Half-Circle Roll Cage Makes Quad Semi-Crash Proof

A little bit of metalworking knowhow has converted a perfectly functional quad into a perfectly functional quad that can do forwards and backward rolls. You're still out of luck if you rolls the quad on its side, but I'm sure the creators of this vehicle are working on putting a quad in a hamster ball next. Overall,… » 3/12/08 4:15pm 3/12/08 4:15pm

Commenter of the Day: ATV Nightmare Edition

Once again, Signore Loverman is off-duty for COTD today, and since he bought his first shotgun at the age of three, we won't inquire too closely about the reasons why he asked me to sub for him this fine Monday evening.

Sometimes You Feel Like A Nut, Sometimes You Don't — The Quadski ATV


And speaking of Transformers — here's an ATV which'll probably feel at home in both the new Michael Bay directed flick, as well as in pretty much any Bond movie. It's an all-terrain vehicle with a 140 bhp engine and a 50 mph top speed, but then it can pop the tires up and sink the engine into the pool for a dip,… » 6/01/06 11:43am 6/01/06 11:43am

Quadrophenia: Autocar Drives the Qpod in Traffic

Is it a glorified ATV retrofitted for ministry-of-transportation approval, or a full-sized Volkswagen Beetle that's been swimming in an icy lake? Whatever it is, the City of London considers it a scooter, so it doesn't charge riders of the 340cc bone shaker for congestion, which makes it kind of a bargain for those… » 11/25/05 2:27pm 11/25/05 2:27pm
