    The Wacky Car Thread

    Living in Europe, I've come across a number of odd looking cars that I figured I'd start a thread about. We drive 'em, we love 'em. We like to draw 'em. Maybe this thread will help inspire some new concepts? Who knows, anyway, you can all post your favorite car images here. Any kind of car or truck, real or imaginary, photo or otherwise. If you're posting someone's art, it's beneficial to mention who the artist is.

    Here's something I came across in Florence Italy, back in 2003. I have no idea what they are. I imagine they're Fiat? Interesting story, when I was here in college, one of my friends was hit on by a guy in one of these cars. She just looked at him and said, "Ci vuole un altra ruotola," which means, you really need a fourth wheel on your car before you start hitting on chicks.

    I had a chemistry teacher with a purple e-type. Cool car.

    Last week a client arrived in one of these. So cute. Bet it could be parked in the cupboard under the stairs.

    I saw someone driving these a couple weeks ago:
    The Wacky Car Thread

    It just looked awkward as hell, too. I don't even understand the point of the two wheels in front being so close together like that. He was even wobbling a bit on it.

    Is a regular 2-wheeled scooter/motorcycle just that much of a challenge?
    I don't get it.

    Hey, I used to own one of these!

    If you look closely you will see seat belts. The Volvo 122 was a 60s era car and was one of the first production automobiles to install seatbelts, long before it was mandatory.
    The truth will set you free,
    but first it's gonna piss you off!
