Is this a Meepzorb?
That is just too cool!! You will not get lost in the snow or sand with that color.
Ugly cute. Clever, innovative, technologically interesting and states clearly that someone has way too much time on their hands.
It's a Volks Crawlen. It is a German version of the Model T Snow Mobil. Mostly used during WW II in the North African Desert's of Libya and Tunisia.
How does it work?
How do you find out about them?
Inquiring minds want to know!
I think I feel my leg being pulled.
Cute idea, good photoshop work! If it is something real, what does the steering wheel do?
OOPS, I posted yesterday just after I was working on my T while it was running in the garage with the doors shut. Too many T Fumes. Interesting VW Track car though.
If it's real it could be on a Bombadier base. 3 seater track/snow vehicle made in Canada. We had them for plowing & snow removal in tight spaces in N.Y.C. years back. Had tank like controls for steering. 2 levers for left/right turns. Stick shift and a Chrysler flathead 6 for power. The controls however were in the center seat. 2 levers for shifting: left was low and rev. Right was 2nd. & high center was neutral.
I drove a crawler years ago that had a steering wheel. when you turn the wheel it would engage the brake on one track or the other track.
It reminds me a little of the Action Track Vanguard. 4 friends and I designed and manufactured 30 of these before we ran out of money and marketing ideas in 1969 and 1970. It had a Sachs (Wankel) rotary 300cc engine and a Dual Multi-plate, oil-immersed and planetary band transmission. The two control sticks let you put each of the two tracks into forward, reverse or brake independently. It went 35 mph and you could spin it in a circle the diameter of the vehicle.
As it was basically designed to destroy itself, we spent a lot of time redesigning and repairing it.
Not a profitable venture but we learned a lot.
