New Attempt at Lawnmower Land Speed Record

Picture unrelated.

Bob Cleveland currently holds the record for the world’s fastest lawnmower, clocked at nearly 81 mph back in 2006.  (Only 81?  You aren’t going to get to 1955 like that.)  Next Sunday, Don Wales from the UK will attempt to break the 100 mph barrier with Project Runningblade.  Their lawnmower (video below) is a 3.0-liter D-4D Double Cab Toyota Hilux with a Kawasaki V-twin engine and a Garfunkle fingal full of cupcake sprockets (anybody still reading?).  When it’s not zooming around at 100 mph, it really can cut grass.  Wait, it can’t do both at the same time?  Awww, man. *scratches Garfunkle fingal lawnmower off wish list*
