    & 2 Chev 350's powering it.
    6 wheel 4-2 arrangement became legit with Tyrell P34 F1 car.
    He jerked off with the determination of someone within sight of Everestís summit, having lost all his friends and Sherpas, having run out of supplemental oxygen, but preferring death to failure.

    That's the Tissier airport shuttle, last I heard it's finally undergoing a restoration after being found in a Paris warehouse.
    The Tissier Loadrunners were built as fast newspaper delivery vans, one of the Citroen forums I'm on has a couple of members who used to run them back in the day. One bloke worked for the London Times, his loadrunner was a CX25 GTi Turbo2, injected 2.5 turbo intercooled. He claims with a tonne of newspapers he would cruise between Calais and Paris doing over 100mph, he admitted at times he would do the same speeds in England if the press was running behind. He recounted one story where he arrived at the Paris distribution center and discovered one of his rear wheels had shed it's tyre, a hydro Citroen can happily drive at a decent speed with a missing wheel. They only stopped running them when it became more economical to air freight the papers, about the time speed cameras started appearing I reckon.

    Pirelli? It says Michelin on the side, and Michelin owned Citroen when the thing was built. It was used to test the then new high speed radial truck tyres Michelin was introducing. Iirc it repaced a Traction Avant.

    Tissier also used to cut CX's in half and weld a car trailer to the back of them, to make a flatbed car carrier. Kind of cool I guess. Handy, anyway, when 80% of the cars on your roads are tiny 1 litre things that constantly break down and people park by feel at 50MPH

    Have been looking at some of Mr Tissier's creations, this site has a reasonable summary:
    http://oppositelock.kinja.com/cars-y...sie-1203864111

    His SM flatbed would have generated a bit of interest back in the day.

    You're not stupid! It's inside the car body - the thing was used by Michelin to test truck tyres. Google it to find out more.

    ^ The French ... they even do Whacky in style.
    Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

    If you dig a hole and it is in the wrong place, digging it deeper isn't going to help.

    That Condor thing; at a quick glance & only seeing the front, I was thinking it didn't look too bad.
    But then ... WTF, is that a fish-eye lens? Surely it can't have ... whatever's going-on at the back? I mean, what is going-on at the back?!

    Mercedes Benz & BMW are doing a great job of crafting abominations. The whole car body on a lifted awd thing just doesnít work for me.

    See these
