Rode my bike to grab a bite to eat at work today and saw this thing parked across the street at Wendy's.













Scary belt drive driveshaft configuration? Seemed like if you had a passenger this would immediately rip their legs off. From what I could see it was powered by a small VW engine and that was about it. The crazy mad scientist owner came out and wasn't happy about people taking pictures of his car so I split. :beer::laugh:

Is this a kit car? Or my guess is a one off hyper-mile creation.

Also if you look, it appeared this at one point had wings :screwy:

I think that's a GM steering column.

Does your state have an annual safety inspection?

Looks like they were going for the Espada-look and it ended up wrong
:D

That's an interesting vehicle. Too bad you didn't stick around to ask the owner some questions about it.

After posting it on my facebook, apparently it's owner lives 3 houses down from a friend of mine. I'll leave a note for you if you'd like :laugh:

I'm not even sure why you're posting this instead of walking over there right know...

I'm not even reading this...

I'm not certain. Did it have a half-rotate engine? If so, it was Feliks.

If not, was there a trio of hoodlum roller-blade hockey players in the area? If so, it was an renegade angel with its wings cut off. Look for a cameo by Bud Cort, Janeane Garofalo and Alanis Morisette.

Other than that, I got nothing.

Where in Columbus did you see that?? Only in Ohio would something like that be legal to drive. :screwy:

Hilliard, off Cemetery road right at 270. It's true though, I see more kooky ass cars driving any Ohio than I have in any other state.

If I can remember this then there is hope for the future. I want to say it was built off of a Chevette and "designed to haul more than 6 people and have some astronomical MPG rating. I think in the article it had 6 rectangular headlamps and not the round ones here. I also seem to recall there is another brown? more complete car as well.
