This Friday, I’m handing it over to you. There’s a self-made project car for sale in Estonia, and I’ll be damned if I can identify anything about it. There are Moskvich Aleko taillights, there’s a front clip that looks like something modelled after a really obscure kit car, like a Marcos or something. The whole thing is cooked out of glassfibre and looks to be the creepiest thing I’ve seen after Halloween.
Throw me a, er, bone here. Can you identify more of it? Anybody? Bueller? Bueller?
Inside, there’s… THINGS. STUFF. NIGHTMARES. Also an oil canister, some wiring, a length of tube and the feeling that everything inside is just bound to give you tetanus. I got a rash from just looking at the photos. But the door is suitably GT40-esque and there’s a steering wheel for you, so there’s that.
Continuing to the rear, there are the aforementioned Moskvitch Aleko (I nearly typed Alero. That would’ve made sense, since they shipped the Chrysler Sebring tooling to Russia for it to live as the Siber) taillights, some Gandiniesque wheelarches and a rear spoiler. The rear section seems to be built in such a way, that it would be easy to access the midship engine by removing the rear clip…
But nah. The 1200cc engine is in the front. Thing is, I have no idea where it’s taken from. The ad just says the car is a 1985 “selfmade” (Omavalmistatud) with a 44kW 1,2-litre engine. That’s it.
And yeah, the seller wants 3000 eur for it. Isn’t that just a perfect price for something so… unique?
