An airboat Like they use in the Everglades, big motor, boat, someone just nuts enough to drive it.
A high speed rapid fire launcher(nothing dangerous just tennis balls)or (golf balls) you could judge for range, accuracy and rate of fire.
Steam drag racers would be way cool.
a multi-part contraption, three separate machines that when connected make 1 mobile or working machine, but can funtion separtly as something else

Steam drag racers would be cool, though in slow motion =)
But steam has already been done. Variations on a theme are OK as long as it hasn't already been done in another theme. Otherwise we could get steam powered lawnmowers, steam powered boats, etc ad nauseaum. :P

Why not a race, one expert an airboat guy the other a swampbuggy guy, the teams would race through a course flooded with about 2 ft of water.

A great swamp buggy is no match for even a bad air boat, except of course the amfib built by the biker bunch. However, a tug of war, buggy and boat in two ft of water and mud, would be intresting. The buggy would have traction problems and throw a lot of mud, and the boat would completely sog the buggy with blowing water and mud.

What about drilling rigs for water and put them to the test?
