I’ve never seen a baby bigfoot, on account I’ve never seen an adult bigfoot, but just picture a newborn horse (they call those ‘foals’, Mike – Ed) with its hilariously disproportioned body and big long legs and hooves.

That’s what we’d be looking at here, if bigfoot trucks could procreate.

I’ve got no idea what this thing was in its first life, but TMR’s Steane Klose dived into his car-nerd brain and came up with the air-cooled, rear-engined ZAZ-965 “Zaporozets”. Of course, who knows if this example is running any of its stock running gear.

Klosey sez: “I could actually get halfway interested in Russian cars, there’s just something about them. They seem to have a strong personality that comes from being grossly over-engineered pieces of rubbish, but still looking kind of 50s retro cool.”

Well, I’ll leave those ones to you, Klosey.
