I'm not thinking that they know how that "fan" actually works.. Rolling Eyes
or is it a green thing to filter 1/2 of the fan capacity instead of just blowing it back to atmosphere.

I don't think that function was much of a criteria for this car. It's more of a Steampunk exercise with those pipes, breather, etc.

Don't know if this one has been posted before (I'm not going through 1800 pages of hacks lol) but its kind of an abortion, and it always made me laugh since I love Up in Smoke.

Is that just a "set on/lift off" box on an otherwise stock bug? Almost seems like it with the bungie cords and low ass end.

This thing is hideous and disgusting and the wheelbase is multiple FEET off and I don't know why anyone wasted their life building this thing instead of just using a goddamn chassis that had a matching wheelbase like a CJ5. I'll post the link and pictures because the add will expire eventually (lord knows it won't sell Laughing), Oh, by the way, He originally wanted $10,000 for it when it was first posted. Yeah, its been for sale for a while

Looks sorta okay from this angle

Looks good to me. Good place to stow gear for a campy trip out in the puckerbrush. I'm sure that's what the builder had in mind. Roof rack would have raised the center of gravity, interior storage is good for stuff you want dry, back porch is good for everything else.
