    That Blazer is not all that unusual. I recall seeing several of them running around my area in the late 70s and early 80s. The roof is removable, and the 4x2 versions were easily lowered with spring and spindle lowering kits.

    I was crossing the border one night in Blaine, Washington, and saw a transporter full of Ferraris much like the one shown here. He was in the process of offloading a few, prior to them being picked up by a Canadian transporter, for delivery in British Columbia. All different models, and all custom ordered by their owners. Who says the economy is in bad shape?

    The seimens things is a prototype for future 18 wheelers. They are shaped that way for aerodynamics, which improve mpg greatly. According to the enginner one of the biggest efficiency improvements for 18 wheelers can come in improved aerodynamics. If I remember correctly he is some really eccentric german engineer. I will try to find the story.

    Here ya go

    Some people are very creative and skilled. Art is not usually practical, but it sure is interesting to view.

    They both are concept trucks of the future.

    Here's one design...... that one very similar used to run I75 into Detroit every day. When the trucks go driverless these will probably be the ones that replace trucks as we know them.

    I liked the cut off van with the camper, the Duck Boat Mercedes, Ford van with Snow tracks and the LONG VW bus.
