Although I was more likely to design spaceships in my school notebooks when I was a kid, most of us did also try to design our own autmobiles as well. And some people went on to build them. Kvadd's Strange Cars is an extensive site dedicated to images of rare and unusual motorcars, bizarre custom jobs (like VW microbuses with tank treads), and improbable traffic accidents. Obviously a labor of love. I also note that Kvadd's domain is registered in Niue, which I believe is a sandbox with two palm trees, like in a New Yorker cartoon. I wonder why? (link via Jalopnik.)

Oh, man, that was a time sink. And my sister the horse woman needs to see this one.

I rather expect that getting the horsey into the car was somewhat easier than getting him out!
