Pensioner turns car into tank

A Russian pensioner spent months tinkering away to transform a compact car into a homemade all-terrain vehicle (ATV).

Viktor Sennikov, from the Perm region, says it took almost 18 months to make the machine frame and a year to build the caterpillar tracks for the vehicle.

He worked as a driver for 40 years and his unusual retirement project hit the snow in early 2019.
