Queenslanders invent new way to die with 4WD mongrel

By Mitchell TulkMitchell Tulk

There’s not much to do in Townsville, Queensland other than drink beer, shoot guns and wreck cars.

YouTube channel, Sick Puppy 4x4 Adventures specialises in doing all the above at once (something we don’t recommend), which results in some chaotic, but brilliant videos.

Making myself even prouder to be a Queenslander, these guys have just created the ultimate off-roader by whacking together a Mazda BG 323 and Ford KF Laser.

The hosts, Cody and Spud sliced the cars in half before joining the noses together with two metal poles, some screws, ratchet straps and general-purpose rope.

Called Thing 1 and Thing 2, on the roof sits the fuel tank (safety can get stuffed!) and in the middle is an esky, because you need to stay hydrated while driving.

Can it drift? Check. Can it parallel park? You bet. Can it do J-turns? No problem.

Is there anything the conjoined twins can’t do? Well, water, mud, trees and bad wiring seem to be its only weaknesses.

Is this the best Aussie invention yet? Let us know in the comments.
