Looky what I found today!

Ok, this is a "drawing" that's similiar to a car I found while scrounging through one of the weirdest junkyards I've even been in. Anyone who can name it will get a cigar. Anyone who can name the country of origin and years / numbers produced will get a couple cigarettes. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Yes, there are websites dedicated to it.

To help you out, it has a 3cyl 2 stroke engine and is full time 4wd. The motor produces a whopping 28 hp! And you thought stock Samurai motors suck!
Personally, I'll bet no one will guess.

Both of you are sooooooo far off. If we were playing Warm/Cold you'd be in a freezer.

Re: Looky what I found today!

It kinda looks like an LJ20 or an LJ50. Who knows, can't really tell from a drawing, could be a Volkswagen THING!

Wrong, ZUKU26. You're not even close. Those kind of look like it but not 100%.
