The "WTF is that?" thread

And the female driver/secretary can do some typing whilst sitting at the traffic lights (of course neither gender stereotyping or actual typing (in cars) is allowed nowadays). Her use of that phone would also be frowned upon today.

This (and that other abomination) need crowd funding.  Electric or V8 or V12 or hybrid. Perhaps increase the ground clearance. It's fucking ace. 

It's what Ferrari and Porsche and TVR should be making.

Given that it's got those fucking marina door handles again it's got more than a good chance of being BL tat.

Which means it's likely got shitty "prince of darkness" wiring, an asthmatic E-series engine with all the wrong gear ratios, ponderous handling, awful driving position and just using the screenwash will cause all the ignition components to die from moisture ingress.

Not that there are stereotypes in regards to BL tin at all.

So... yes, David - bang on the money there!

Saw that on FB this morning. Not sure I've recovered from the 'blue coupé' fiasco to read people's absurdly uninformed 'suggestions'. It's a homemade one-off, probably inspired by the looks of a Kellison. At least it still exists, so one could theoretically just ask the owner exactly what the story is.

Driving position must be outrageously reclined, but I reckon it probably has more headroom than my Heron. I'd be incredibly surprised if there are any Beetle bits in there considering the massive wire wheels. More likely to be Jaguar or perhaps TR running gear. Off the road since at least 1980 so must have had a fairly brief life.
