Remote-controlled Pumpkin Tractor

We had a pumpkin-decorating contest at work. To keep them from rotting in the break room, we had a rule against cutting the skin. That left external drawing, painting, and decoration. As I'm not much of an artist, I focused on using the skills I do have. Using an old Vex robotics kit, I put together a remote-controlled tractor for the pumpkin to ride. I was ready to submit a faceless pumpkin and unadorned tractor, but a coworker came to my rescue and took over the artistic aspect. She made our little Gourdita into the purty pumpkin you see here. We won a paid day off work.
