Thought that too, but looking at scale, they must be off a giant sewin machine compared to the sewin machine main body of the car..

Yes please https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z03CfZdg4sY  ..

Just watched that car today (at work  ;D  ) on a Cleetus episode.
It is for sale - about $86k USD from memory.
But what a hoot it would be.

Forget the old cars.....this will turn more heads pulling into the local woolies carpark.... especially if you fire a few rounds into the cars that haven't parked correctly....

Whilst searching for something completely unrelated, I came across this thesis. I have downloaded it (all 404 pages) and started reading. I'm only about 25 pages in but find it fascinating. Anyone with an interest in Australian Car Design should download and read it. Many fascinating illustrations and old photos.
I highly recommend

Is it just me or does it look like the front and the back of a car both at the same time?
