Black Oil & Night Soil: Hoon Hard & Prosper

Today’s batch can be best described as a fat crop of nonsense.  There are some projects that didn’t quite make it to fruition, some meaty street machines, and even a flight simulator in a school bus.  Kit cars, mud boggers, a Doodlebug, and finally a MAN 8×8, strong enough to drag an entire forest up a hill and through another forest.
I know you are amped.  Dive in.

    That Monzamino isn’t bad. Pretty well executed.
    However, I really need to comment on the Limo post. Or poster, perhaps. Diamond Plate? Really? As horrifyingly awful as that car was straight off the line, I can’t imagine a better way to ruin it. But then I read the text with the ad and it all came together. No coherence in the accessories and none in the words either.

    Money aside, vehicles I would eagerly drive in an upcoming LeMons rally:
    Yes, yes, no, yes, yes, yes, yes, no, yes, no, yes, no (although tempting), yes.
    That’s a disturbingly high ratio, so please don’t post too many vehicles near my home.

      Your next support vehicle. Put the KV Mini in the back and pull a Saab using a tow bar. And it already has a rollcage, sort of. All at a Lemons-appropriate price.

        I like the liftgate but I don’t think the utility box will fit down my driveway between the house and the fence. The choke point is 7’3″.

          Single rear wheel truck, with a box not much wider than the cab. You will have about six inches to spare.

          Or park it in the street with some orange cones around it and convince the neighbors you have serious telephone problems.

            I suspect the neighbors are already convinced I have serious problems.

    What?!?! An MGB with an automatic?

    1. mdharrell Avatar

      MG built a few with automatics, with the standard (so to speak) numbers quoted as 452 roadsters and 1285 GTs. Despite what one would think, these were intended exclusively for the British market, although rumor has it that a handful may have been ordered for US delivery. An automatic was offered in the MGC as well.
      I suspect the car above is not one of them.

        Just because you can hook up a slush pump to a tractor motor doesn’t mean you should!

    The Foyt sprint car is interesting. Not only is it “completely STREET LEGAL!!” (somewhere), it also seems to have fuel injection plus a carburetor?

      1. outback_ute Avatar

        That definitely makes sense – not likely to have made some custom heads!

    So much want for that MAN 8X8. I have no practical use for it, nowhere to store it, limited access to off road opportunities, and I’d annoy everyone if I brought it to work.
    It’s perfect.

      Agreed, although I’d rather hold out for a Lockheed 901.
