The "WTF is that?" thread

Recommended Posts

Every now and again I see something I just can't identify. Thought I start a thread so the hive mind of AS can help work out what these mystery vehicles are.

 

Any ideas?

I remember this on the Ebay tat thread years ago. It was a home built camper van based on a Citroen DS, I think. I've been spending the last 30 minutes trying to find a photo of it but haven't found any yet. Just placing my hat in the ring here and I'll carry on trawling.

Bloody hell.  Unglaublich indeed.

 

That picture of "my" DS is taken at the house of the chap I bought it from - I went down there intending to drive it home, but it wouldn't start as the fuel pump had gone, and the chances of finding a DS fuel pump on a Saturday afternoon were zilch.  I got it delivered in the end, then fitted an electric ticker pump.  Sold it to a lad who was going to restore it, but not sure what happened to it after that.

Its like a 1970s vision of the 'hearse of the future'

That crossed my mind too, maybe like something a funeral director would use in the 'UFO' TV series.  I think it looks fantastic.

Thanks Eddie, you've saved me a lot of searching!

 

I did find an image of wuvvum's old DS though, so it wasn't all wasted time.

Was an ex-BBC camera car for horse racing and such like, from memory.

A cycling club now owns this and have  turned it in to Tour de France replica camera car.

What was the design brief for the the Green Box ?

Oooh , I would like a vehicle more likely than any other to fall over with the unique driving position of standing up negating the requirement to install a seat.

The comments on that DS-world site are funny.

What always amazes me about creations like that green camper is that at the end someone stood back and went ‘Fantastic it’s finally finished’ then went off and had a celebratory pint. Me, I’d have thought ‘Bollocks. I’ve wasted a fucking shit load of time and materials making this abomination’ 

Yes it’s definitely a ‘one off’. Looking at the link hasn’t he made rig rear doors from Formica laminated chipboard?
