Dreams and Nightmares—the trick or treat edition

Boo! It’s time for a special Halloween edition of Dreams and Nightmares—featuring the scary, funny, and just plain strange in automotive design.  

 

As you know, here at Mac’s Motor City Garage, we never, ever make fun of oddball automobiles. The weirder they are, the better we like them. In this collection you will find some cars dressed up in costume, while others are not what they seem in other ways. Some of the vehicles seem inexplicable on every level, from any angle—which makes them all the more fascinating.

In any case, we’d be happy to take any of these vehicles trick-or-treating with us. Gallery below.

  1. While that Mork Egg is awesome in its own way, I’m probably most intrigued by the OSI Silver Fox. It looks like it’s an exercise in reducing drag for a 4-wheeled vehicle.

  2. The Garden City Hofbrau truck is still around. I’ve seen it a few times at shows around San Jose CA.
