Mechanic Jimmy Driver has seen his fair share of bizarre vehicles over the years, but his very own creation, Mortis, most likely tops them all. the Standing 10-feet tall and weighing in at 20,000-pounds, it started off as a 1967 Cadillac superior hearse, but after lots of work, along with parts from school buses and tractors, it became this 6-wheeled beast.
