Bill Payne isn’t afraid to venture into the unconventional, and his newest demonstration of automotive ingenuity comes in the form of a 9,600-pound modified tank.
Payne is the founder of Straight Up Racing, an independent monster truck racing team based in Port Orchard, Washington, and has recently debuted a new vehicle, dubbed the “Major Payne”. Adapted from a WWII tank, it’s far from your average monster truck.
The Major Payne is modified from an M5 Half-Track Personnel Carrier, produced from 1942 to 1943, though the only original elements remaining are the tracks, suspension, and rear drive axle. Twelve thousand pounds of weight was dropped in the build, which took over a year to complete.
