    Glorious!
    "Major straight line instability" could only be a net contribution to caution on the roads.

    Pretty horrible. And it isn't even East German.

    Specialized "tundra buggies", unique to Churchill, Manitoba. The height requirement is self explanatory.

    While looking for Elephants in an attempt to provoke someone into buying one, pottered onto this.
    Only have a dim recollection of reading about the vehicle... I think... and certainly don't recall seeing pictures on IWM.

    Incandescent tube ignition strange enough ? However did it catch on ? Someone called Beau de Rochas, or Otto, is responsible.

    Isn't that like the pre-heat system on the glorious Lanz tractor we recently referred to?

    I suspect having to go through that process at 5AM before a bit of ploughing might engender incandescence of various types.

    Even if it is, as seems quite likely, nonsense; 300mph underwater strikes me as... unwise.

    Homemade 300mph super-cavitating submarine?

    Turn normal vehicles into strange vehicles with TrackNGo.
    Doubtless an ACME product...
