That thing is just wwhhroong.

Do you think that thing is rear wheel steering, or articulated? Also, what is that thing?

That is a lavatory servicing truck. The fellow on top of the tank is connecting the hose to the dump valve fitting. (Notice his gear--akin to the flight suit for an Me163 flight!)

I agree, looks like a Matador.

That's not a VW. It looks like a Tempo Matador to me.

i think this one has been discussed before.

since those are Front Wheel Drive, they possibly just flipped the cab around and made it rear steer?

Oooft! That’s a monster bus!
When I see buses like this, I mean a swivel seat is bought for a reason so why add a sunroof?
:in the dealership: “want a sunroof”? “yeah! Fuck it why not” :lol:

Nearest we can figure is that it was a school bus.
Details are in the build thread.
