Punkin Chunkin World Championships 2000
Junk Yard Chunker was just that - a trebuchet built entirely from junkyard parts....
....even using a an engine block and various junkyard metals for the counterweight.
Here is Junk Yard Chunker, next to the mighty Man Killer!
You can see where it gets it's name Man Killer - four men ride this treb as the counterweight - truly human powered!
Another one of many trebs to be seen at Punkin Chunkin 2000 - trebuchets had there own division this year. You can also see an historical recreation of a medeival treb in the background.
Here is the Historical Treb - a beautiful piece of workmanship - it was originally built to hurl kegs of beer in a commercial.
