Drifting milk truck has a lotta bottle
A 53-year-old former electric milk delivery truck is now capable of delivering creamy full fat power.
The 1961 Morris electric milkfloat, known as Milky, now packs a 3.5-litre Rover engine mounted behind the driver's cab and was the star of a publicity stunt aimed at demonstrating tyre maker Falken has tyres for almost any vehicle.
Drift driver Matt Carter overcame the difficulty of trying to put on a good show with Milky's vertical steering column and churned up the dust at a contractor's yard in England.
''Compared to my 600+bhp Nissan competition car, this was still more of a pig than a cow to drift,'' the former British Drift champion said.
"With no seat belts or doors, it was a case of hanging on rather than hanging the tail out!''
It is believed Milky was originally converted from electric to petrol by a wealthy enthusiast to tow a speedboat around London.
