    Bullocks!

    Now I've only ever seen one of these in one of those 'kit car dictionaries' in a black and white photo - where it managed to look worse than this poor specimen!

    It's a 50 year old car and everything works, just not always at the same time.......and it's probably about to get jealous!

    NO chassis, no V5c = scapper, one case of good it's never going to see the road, it is plug ugly, what did they use for moulding the ight pods, tupper ware?

    I think I've already mentioned it, but allegedly there was a boat only some 30 minutes away from home, where the owner grafted the top half of a Eureka onto it. Working canopy and all. But apparently it sunk, and I haven't managed to work out if it was recovered or not.

    That's quite a neat idea, if you get the hull choice right - something like those tri-hull planing things (I don't know the correct nautical terminology, but you know the ones I mean - rectangular, nice and stable).

    I have seen a picture of a Lotus Europa shell grafted on a hull in the same manner. Floated long enough to have its picture taken, obviously!
