Why does that link take you to the FB page of a chap who may be very wonderful but whom, from his photo, you wouldn't really want in charge of the local Cub Scout Troop? Harsh, I know, but nature has not favoured him in looks.

 

Ditto the chodwagon.  FOOOK, that's fooogly.  Also totally ace.

If anybody is interested it's only about 30 miles from me, and I'll be passing that way on Sunday. I've half a mind to try and find it anyway, just to get a few more snaps but I wouldn't want to waste his time by arranging a viewing if not serious. If it's on the street though...stalker alert!

This looks like it folds flat onto the roof (if you can be bothered) for travelling.

Arrive at site, unfold it, and you have your very own Punch and Judy show. Or, in this case, Eric Morecambe and Valerie Singleton show.

Comfortable, discreet, and practical, a worthwhile addition to the motor car of any skirt-chasing giffer. Just open it up and in you go, so to speak.

Also available in clear-vinyl for doggers, 6 shillings extra.

Saab 92H, powered by 850cc 3cyl 2 stroke! Bare in mind they were marketed in a country which is virtually flat and most people would have used them to drive 10 miles or so to their pitch by the lake, so they're not quite as daft as you might think.

One of the vids on YouTube shows a blue and white one- I think the mk1 without without wheel arches, at a show, I've watched it as it manoeuvres about the car park and I cannot see a driver...

Based on a 1976 Cadillac. I don't know how you get into it, looks like the sort of thing I used to make out of Lego.

I like it. A lot.

Needs a helicopter on the top though.

Hope they've altered the driving position otherwise changing lanes could be interesting.

Good call. I'd expect it to be a great big fuck-off gullwing door too, very disappointed if it's not.

"Luv, remember that money we had saved for a holiday to Las Vegas? Well, yesterday I met a bloke in the pub and bought this instead. Now we can go on holiday whenever we like. The world's our lobster. Do you like it? It's a V4 and it has a bed and a cooker. The original ones from new.
How about we take it down to your parents' this weekend, maybe stay over for a couple of days, would you like that?".

So do I. Just pull down a roller door.

You would definitely need some system of ventilation though.

I really like those Luton conversions they just look like a carpet delivery van outside but have full standing up space inside .

I estimate this car needs £3000 maybe £4000 spending on it to get it rite and when this is done it will be wotrth about £1500!!
