Someone Turned A Chevy Pickup Into Awesome Halo-Inspired Warthog .
It took five years to build this street-legal video game replica. It’s not every day you see a real-life incarnation of something from a futuristic sci-fi video game. Granted, this insanely cool replica of the M12 recon vehicle—AKA the Warthog from the widely popular Halo game series—doesn’t use a futuristic hydrogen engine for power. It also doesn’t have fully independent off-road suspension, though that’s not because such tech hasn’t been invented yet. It’s because the backbone of this rig is a 1980’s full-size Chevy pickup, though admittedly there isn’t much of the original truck left.
