Take A Ride On The Lawn Chair Monster Truck

Lawn chairs. They're the perfect furniture for relaxing in your backyard with a book and a glass of lemonade. Or for serving as the seating on the Big Dog, a 3m pedal-powered monster truck. Did I mention it breathes fire?

OK, I don't know if that qualifies as "breathing" fire or if it's more like "tooting" it (and it's definitely not as menacing with Tom Wilson, the Big Dog's creator, and his family pedalling cheerily beneath it), but this surely remains the most bad-ass lawn chairs have ever been, right?

The Big Dog measures a little over 3m long, 2.4m tall and weighs nearly 230kg. Go-kart brakes and axles keep it from crushing Begonias like they were clunkers laid out for sacrifice to the monster-truck gods.

Still, I'd much rather see this Big Dog headed towards my yard than the other Big Dog. [Big Dog via Make]
