Outboard Engine Drink Blender Runs on Gasoline: But Will it Blend?

by Paul Strauss

This has to be one of the most unusual household appliances I’ve ever seen. What you’re looking at here is an old Johnson outboard motorboat engine, converted into a blender. Why? Because nobody had done it before, I guess.

According to the description of this thing, this 1958 Johnson Sea Horse 18 outboard motor has had its guts replaced with a small Homelite 2-cycle motor, which powers the blender that’s been built into the top. All in all, it took the guy who made it 6 months to engineer and build this gas-powered blending beast.

Don’t believe that this thing actually works? Watch as its creator fixes an icy-cold cocktail with one pull of the starter handle.

Well, that answers that. If you want it, head on over to Etsy where you can get your hands on this thing for $2,800(USD), which also happens to make it the world’s most expensive blender. My only concern is the mixture of gasoline vapors, exhaust and tequila mix might make for one mean hangover.
