    I wonder how many farmers are maimed or killed from these Modified death traps.

    Occupational Health and Safety would have a stroke in the West.

    ^ There's one similar to that around where I live but I can never find it parked up. It has the standard red Kubota engine sticking out of the bonnet but it's not as finess as yours. I'll get a photo soon, hopefully.

    they look to have belts on them. not uncommon for vehicles with those huge doof doof stereo's to run multiple alternators. Hanging them through the bonnet sure is different though.

    I came across this beauty today. I was impressed. Made from scratch by people in BKK and shipped up to Buriram Province. I met with the farang driver as he was going to the local cop shop to see their take on him driving it.

    Fortuner lorry.



    I had to laugh at this guy. He was in a shop and as soon as he saw me he dashed out, jumped in the drivers seat, then ran back into the shop after I'd taken the shot.

    Over loading being a major factor in many deadly accidents here in Thailand I see pickups passing our house almost daily at rice harvest season carrying 3 times over the legal weight .

    Thai's seem to be obsessed in doing one trip overloaded, and being a accident waiting to happen, than do 2 trips and play safe.
