I do encounter a wide variety of vehicles on my never-ending journey, and some are a bit more rustic, shall we say, than average. And more obscure too. Would you like to take a crack at it?
hmm, at least the spare should be under the bonet to leave room for the bong
Datsun stationwagon/unabomber hut ???
Looks like a 1975 or so Dodge Colt, though I must confess I see what looks like a ‘Colt’ script on the front fender.
Yes. Second generation Dodge Colt (Mitsubishi Galant based)
That looks like a late ’70’s Subaru DL or GL wagon to me.
It looks as there ought to be hens roosting inside that bed cover.
I was thinking Subaru, too–whatever generation of wagon that shared its front end with the first BRAT.
Yes, it’s an old Scoobie.
I used to see something rather similar in my old haunts in NE Ohio. They were mostly pickup trucks, when the factory bed rusted away, many folks would weld some angle iron together and install a wooden floor. Most often these had stake sides, and later folks were adding their own tool box behind the cab along with the stake sides. Here in W Michigan, there was a guy with a mid 80’s Cutlass Ciera wagon who removed the roof behind the front seat to make a pickup out of it. I called it El Cieramino, but nobody in family got the joke. It eventually sprouted a regular pickup truck cap lashed on to the ‘bed’ area.
I haven’t seen it in a couple of years now, and I don’t know what became of the car/truck or it’s owner. Should have gotten pix while I could have…
This thing would fiill any NZ traffic cops weekly pink sticker quota, we have 6monthly roadworthy inspections and this has no hope at all,
