Post a pic of the oddest, strangest, weirdest landgoing vehicle you ever owned in this thread :) Here's mine: [img]http://boards.rennlist.com/upload/db280.jpg[/img] Not actually the bus I owned, but the same model.

Nice SUV Skammy. I'm rebuilding mine now, my parents owned it before I was even born. [img]www.ar15.com/members/albums/WillysWagon%2F1950Willys%2Ejpg[/img]

Not odd, wierd, or strange, just not the ususal run of the mill car. No pics but I owned a 1976 Jaguar XJ6C - the 2 door coupe which was only made between 1976 and 1977. We swapped out the Jag 6 cyl engine for a 350ci high performance chevy engine. Dropped 100 pounds in weight and added 100 horsepower, it was a screamer [:D] Then the rest of the car started to go to pieces. It's fairly cheap to work on a chevy engine, but to keep a 76 Jag (Lucas) electrical system and interior in great shape takes some $$$. Traded it in to get my Jeep Cherokee.

The damn German Amphicar! They EAT BATTERIES (positive ground), & did almost 5 MPH on a good day (no matter what the advertisements said)! This is from the "Amphib 2001 meet". The red one that's half hidden by the drunken idiot. [i]Hey, wadaya want -- at least that's the original paint (or what's left of it).[/i] [img]http://members.tripod.de/amphicar/amphib1/06240236.jpg[/img]

Not me, but my H.S. bud and his father were always buying foreign cars in the early 60's. One of the strangest was called an NSU Prinz. Not so odd, but very small. You could barely get the two of us in there, and if there was a back seat, it was a cruel joke. But that sucker could make an uninterrupted U-turn in the width of his driveway, only you didn't want to be moving very fast when you did it (seemed like a high C.G.). I thought the Isettas were pretty odd & cool, but then I didn't own one.

It is a 41 Chevy 3/4 ton PU, street rodded, and is my daily driver since my VW went tits-up last summer. It is a head-turner, and the fastest 3/4 ton PU I have ever seen. Love my Street Rod.

Oldest is a 1929 Dodge DA that my brother and I own. I don't know if I have any pictures kicking around here. Getting that thing registered was a trip. No such thing as VIN back then. Ross

Yes, but it's not a pick-up but a sedan. It also has wire spoke wheels, cowl lights, and the spares in the fenderwell mounts on both sides. It is NOT a fast car....but it does get the looks. Finding parts are a PITA. Ross

RAF, I used to turn bolts for a guy that raced a Datsun 2000 in SCCA D-production. Quite a beast. We took it to Road Atlanta four or five times for the championship races. Never got over third. Had several national records, usually running against the Group 44 guys. After SCCA let us upgrade from the Mikunis (Japanese SU's) to the Hitachis (Jap Solex) we got over 250 dyno horsepower out of it.

This is mine. I wish I still had it. There are few still on the road around here. It's a 1983 AMC eagle. It's a 4x4 with the Jeep engine. A true piece of junk but it was unique. [img]http://www.lorekeepers.org/Curtis/David/jpg/AMCEagle.jpg[/img]

Hey, what is it sitting on?? The oldest is a 1948 Dodge 2 ton truck (farm rig). The ugliest and strangest is a 1981 C-8000 Diesel Ford cab over truck lovingly nicknamed "Frankenstein". Why??? Lets see, everything infront of the 'bed' is 1981 truck. The tandom rear drivers are out of a 71 Frightliner, the frame graft, who knows.... and the bed is a half-a$$ed rollback. It scales empty at 20,100 lbs......
