Humbug

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.

Is that what you get when you cross a bug a thing a jeep and a hummer?? Can't decide if I like it or not. At least it probably gets better gas mileage than a hummer!

I like it. It would be cool if they added an engine up front and made it four-wheel drive, but it would be a pain to synchronize the two transmissions... Guess that's what dreams are for, "dreams are making the impossible possible."

It's like a Meyers Manx for the macho set. Not something I'd buy, but it's clever.

Is that a repurposed Jeep Wrangler soft top?

I wanted to get one of those kits soooo bad when I was 16 and had my '74. They were advertised in the VW magazines...

Have seen one of these in person. It used to come to Bug-a-palooza. Was a wild looking ride, thats for sure.
