YAK Car Pic of the Day

.

Sorry to offend any of you out there who’ve ever rented one of these things, but the only way you’d ever find me in one is with a bag over my head. Gross! Sit me in the back seat of a nice black Lincoln Town Car (which is what this monstrosity started life as) — or, better yet, a Russian-made 1957 GAZ Chaika (the favored transportation of Soviet bloviators back in the day) and drive me to my polo match. These gaudy Excalibur conversions merely make a statement which is unprintable in this family-friendly forum. This one was seen a short time ago in a North Tonawanda used car lot. I wonder what it was traded for?

And if you’re wondering, yesterday’s mystery yellow and red station wagon was a 1958 Simca Marly; you can view the whole lineup in the Dutch brochure by clicking here.
