Either the tricycles are built like tanks or the minivans are built from aluminum.
In this topsy-turvy world we live in sadly nothing comes as much of a surprise any more. Especially when what's happening, is happening in China. Here literally anything goes, from eating scorpions on a stick to transporting minivans around on a motorized tricycle. Caught in the outskirts of Xi'an in Shaanxi Province, what you can see in the photos isn't exactly an everyday occurrence but it's not out of the ordinary either. Clearly tricycles in China are made of solid stuff.
You would be right in thinking that moving a minivan in this way must be illegal, but apparently nobody worries about the local police who are, more often than not, to be found getting nicely wasted with young Chinese babes by their side.
