Spotted this unique specimen in the Antelope Valley north of LA on Saturday... looks an early-mid '60s VW Bug chopped in half and made into a motortrike!

Sorry I wasn't able to get any side or frontal shots.

Yeah, that's one odd vehicle.

I drove through Antelope Valley once. I found it to be a really nice, interesting place to drive. It must have been spring, because I remember lots of yellow flowers all over the place. For as many people as there are in LA, it's pretty easy to get away to nice places without other people.

I think those are 30s Ford taillights too. :dunno:

And those yellow flowers out there in spring are poppies. Can get pretty crowded out there in the spring when they're in full bloom.

I wouldn't go out there today, though. Probably about 112F today.

WOW

Haven't seen that in a while. Use to see a lot more of those in the 70's.

Many years back at a car show I saw a bug that'd been sliced in to 3rds the long way, the middle slice removed and the remaining 3rds welded back together so that it was a two seater (1 front, 1 back). From the side it looked like a regular bug. From the front/back it looked like a verrrry skinny bug. Did a great job on the body work. Wonder how stable it was now that it had such a small side-to-side wheel base. Too bad I didn't take any pics.

I was afraid of that . . .

You're aging yourself, Scott!!
I knew there was a slight risk of that! :lmao:

P.S. - I also saw the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show :yikes:

If John Lovitz (sp) on Saturday Night Live said it, you'd buy it! :D
