I don't know what this is, but I'm staying out of its way.

Did you see something that was supposed to be a car at one time and now looks like the frankenstein monster? If so take some pics of that fugly thing and post them here. This also goes for any other "rice" you may find littering the streets or shows.

Maybe the world's only up-armored Tercel?

Naw, It's only an exoskeleten to hold the rust together.

One commenter on my LiveJournal suggested it might be a canoeist's "bush car," a vehicle used for hauling a canoe to the water that's too ugly to be stolen from the parking lot while you're gone.

Most likely explanation I've heard so far. It is an all-wheel-drive Tercel, so it'd be ideal for going down forest roads.
