Backyard geniuses make float plane tugs.

These crazy contraptions deserve a handle like "Hallelujah jacks" but make do with bland names like "Float Plane Mover" or "Tug". You'll do a double take seeing chopped cars floating on their front wheels, steering a hydraulic jack-cum-cart from behind.  They should have a shine and show with everything from Hillbilly Traditional to Detroit drag.  It's all do it yourself!  There's no factory to order from.
