The Brits were very big on strange vehicles,like the Bond company,which made some incredibly weird devices.
Closer to home,(Oz),does anyone remember the Lightburn Zeta?
It was a "real car"-----sort of!
The Zeta was made by a washing machine manufacturer,so a lot of the components were not standard car parts.
It was driven by a 2 stroke motor----quite a small one,if I remember correctly.
The original design came from Eastern Europe------sorry,can't remember where.but the Aussie version had a fibreglass body.(an ugly one!)
There was also a Sports version,which looked a bit like a Goggomobil Dart.
The Goggos were a much more sophisticated vehicle,though.
