One For The Road . . .

This is yet another photo circa 1988 dredged up from my vast negatives archive that is finally seeing the light of day after all these years . . . the problem is, I have no idea what it is !
.
I am wondering if a machine like this was used by the likes of Dick Fuld and his ilk to contribute to wrecking the international economy recently ? Or maybe on the contrary, this is the machine that Barack Obama is going to need to use to FIX the international economy ?
.
Or maybe it is the machine needed to flatten blog authors who ask too many questions ? Or perhaps the Pope has one of these to crush all intellectual oposition to certain tired dogma ? (Which reminds of that old line. . . "Excuse me, but I think my karma just ran over your dogma.")
.
Anyway, maybe I'd better open the question up to all of you astute and imaginative readers out there . . . what do you think this machine is for ? ? ? (Feel free to leave a comment ! If you don't have one already, just open up a free Google account on the blogger.com site)

It looks like a multi-purpose vehicle. I think it might have been the steam(yes, real steam power)roller that helped pave the original road to your dream house. It is also awaiting its future role to help crush all of the dream cars that got lost along that road.
