Take a Ride on the Lawnchair Monster TruckS

Lawnchairs. 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, an eleven-foot, pedal-powered monster truck. Did I mention it breathes fire?

Okay, 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 pedaling cheerily beneath it) but this surely remains the most badass lawnchairs have ever been, right?

The Big Dog measures 11 feet long, 8 feet tall, and weighs nearly 500 pounds. Go-kart brakes and axels keep it from crushing Begonias like they were clunkers laid out for sacrifice to the monster truck gods.
