People can be pretty creative sometimes, and sometimes their work may go unappreciated. Hopefully this thread can offer a place to memorialize their hard work! Please post the odd stuff that you see from around the world here!

We found this gem at the Cypress Gardens in South Carolina. The gentleman said that he built it only because his wife said that he could't.

That is awesome!!! Great find!!!

I've been wanting to bolt my drum set down in the back of my pickup truck and jam while someone drives down the road. This thread could help inspire me to do that. :)

Yeah, it's a trike of sorts. The gas tank was in the trunk, which is why everything was strapped down. Now I wish that I would have spent a little more time talking with the owner. Oh, and it was street legal!

I'm just trying to image what that nightmare would be like to drive. Other than the weight of the driver there's nothing to keep the front end on the ground. I imagine the steering would be pretty squirrely at anything over about 10 miles an hour.

Talk about a death trap..........just cause you can doesn't necessarily mean you should.

And the front brake is big enough to stop all that weight at highway speeds? I suspect that would be very exciting!  ; D

I like the lawnmower queen seat with the grips for her to hold on with. Must be crazy to look in the mirror and have a car always tail gating you. Chris

Keeping with the trike theme. :) Sorry for the poor quality, just a phone snap.

Trikes...

All the weight and lack of maneuverability of a car, cunningly combined with the lack of crash protection and exposure to the weather of a motorbike... :p

Another cell phone snap ;-)a. Headed back from Delmarva Bike Week last year and saw this when we were fueling up. A Mercedes SL 500 pulling a camper, pulling a bike. Not weird, but very interesting. Actually got talking to the owner, and he has quite a set-up.
