So this is what happens when the ability to build and modify cars falls into the wrong hands...

By the way, the third car under Reply #16 (Amsterdam) seems to be the same as this: http://www.autopuzzles.com/forum/2009-37/gg-67-foo-mobile/msg77795

And the last car under Reply #48 (Otto Puzzel) is this (and therefore not actually "anonymous"): http://www.autopuzzles.com/forum/2009-37/solved-name-that-make-7-diehlmobile-'spare-car'

Anyway, here's a modest contribution of my own. I saw this in a parking lot near an antique car show in Florida in 1997. (Unfortunately I didn't get a more complete picture of it).

Quite an eye you have!
Thanks.
I'll post the better picture in the "Diehlmobile" thread you mention.

Nice anonymous racing car - a Claas combine harvester. As you do.
I must be right - that's what it says on Wikipedia

Ever thought of adding that final Porsche turbo touch to your Peugeot 203?

Wouldn't be too useful. the headlights would be too low for its size and the front end would look bloated because of so much plastic. Is there a thread for such Frankensteins on here?

lt's not very practical ,but looks cool if those plastic are replaced by metal .Ordinary Patrol Y60 looks too "kind" as a big offroad.such Frankensteins are very interesting for me , l hope there could be a part for it.

We do have a thread for privately built Frankensteins: https://www.autopuzzles.com/forum/featured-imagery/nice-anonymous-cars-and-who-cares/

Should I merge these two threads?
