    Oddities & abominations 'crafted' from (or on top of) other cars

    The Creative Cars range of 'exotics' from the late 1980s would have to be an obvious starting point, as well as an easy target.

    Street Machine article covering the CC range:

    A visual overview of these unforgettable 'classics':



    CC's weren't the first nor the last to do this sort of thing - there's got to be plenty of others which can be added to the 'hall of fame'.

        Purvis Eurerkas were one of the mainstream Beetle conversions in the 70's/80's - have they become sort of respected now?

        Noticed two on carsales, not exactly cheap, and both well looked after:

            How about this one? E36 M3 Evo under there!

            "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

                One of those Ferrari/Celica things in the link used to go to Jamboree a just be in show and shine. Not racing. his was about 10 years ago.

                Some of them look ok if you had never seen what they are based on, but once you see what they are based on they just look wrong and melted.

                  nah people probably won't be childish fucks in this one



                  wonder how many of the MG TD replicas they sold (with VW beetle underpinnings)?



                  or why such a thing even existed, I can't imagine an MG TD was expensive back then

                      So many 'conversions' seemingly had to be mounted on VW Beetle chassis' back in the day - were people just giving Beetles away back then, or were their retained values next to nothing anyway?

                        cheap to buy easy to remove the body and have a chassis with floor

                          probably a combination of not much value, there were lots of them, and the fact that the body just unbolts from the floor pan/chassis and is a complete drivetrain. made registration easier too, because the 'chassis' number is stamped above the gearbox

                            I've seen one of those Ferrinos in person. Was out the front of Garry Blogg's on Paramatta Rd, about 25 years ago.

                            Still had 'Celica' on the dash...

                              Sounds like a mere oversight?
