The amount of "add-ons" is overwhelming. Even as "car art" it's not appealing to me.

Wondering what the lower area is for.....camping gear

With the rear seats removed I could use that for trimming trees in the township instead of a ladder on a trailer...
All I can say is there's NO WAY I'd belt myself into that rig! Once it started to go over, I'd want to be able to BAIL!!! I'd like to see it w/another couple feet of track width and some hand grips to hold oneself in place over bumpy terrain.

It's probably used for sight-seeing in the Veld.

Basically, I have seen similar in rural Texas. But usually it is just a vehicle with a seat on the roof and steering up there too.

With a windshield and bucket seats, looks like a sightseeing rig to me. Our swamp buggies around here and in FL all were wide open so you could maneuver a long gun for hog, etc.

That look's like it would be fun...

Poor bugger is going to make about a dollar an hour on that one!

Let's see now.

To misquote a poet - "How do I hate thee? Let me count the ways"

A "Nomad" with straight "B" pillars?

A Sedan Delivery "Nomad"?

It's not even a good "inspired by" attempt

Think of it as closer to a '57 S-D (with Bel Air trim?) grafted onto a Caprice

Not such an appealing a description, is it?

not sure where to put this but I actually think this was done in very good taste with the new and the old. I'm sure the purists will have a fit but this was done very well in my opinion. Wish I got a glimpse of the back.

Very nicely done,, A few things could have been a little better,,, But I think the work it took to get there was worth the hard work..Very cool..

I think it would have looked better with the side glass's.

don't laugh but I was thinking a bubble glass. Something needs to break up that huge panel in the back. Seems like if they addressed the head lights and little bit of fab going into the head lights would have made a huge difference. Cool though.
