Car-azy: the Weirdest Vehicle Customisations (Part 1)

General No Comments

Here at Smartway, we regularly carry out a wide variety of car body repairs in Wimbledon, and because of that you can be sure that we come into contact with a huge array of different car types. Some of these are very unusual indeed, and in these special cases you can bet your life that the owner is very keen to get bodywork problems sorted. After all, people are always more likely to go to town on the appearance of something that they’re genuinely attached to.

All of this got us thinking; what are the strangest car conversions and customisations that we’ve come across? More to the point, what are the strangest car conversions of all?? In this, the first of a mini-series, we’re going to take a look at one customisation that we came across in the news…

Great Scott! Yes indeed, the car in question is the iconic DeLorean from Back to the Future, but possibly not as you know it. Given the beloved status of the DeLorean in popular culture, it’s no surprise that this should be a popular car for customisations, but this is really quite impressive!

As you can see from the Metro article in question, this guy’s imagination isn’t exactly limited. Be honest, how many of you would have thought of turning a 1981 DeLorean car into a monster truck? Well, it may not be an obvious move, but it’s definitely happened, and even more astounding is the fact that it only took one month to build! The project literally involved combining a DeLorean with a 4×4 chassis. Simple, perhaps, but it definitely works.

At the other end of the scale, we have a DeLorean limousine. You probably couldn’t get further from a monster truck than a limousine, but the Delorean has still adapted to the style with aplomb. In this case, numerous vehicles were needed to create the finished article, and so several years were required to see things to the conclusion. The owner of this crazy twosome, Rich Weissensel, has even made a hovercraft from a DeLorean, so it just goes to show what you can do with a little innovation.

Although your own vehicle may not be quite as ‘one-of-a-kind’ as these customisations, you’d still be well advised to keep your family ride in great condition, and that means attending to even the smallest bodywork repairs. At Smartway, our professional team can be trusted with even the most delicate repair jobs, so contact us now by calling 07732 542500 and we’ll be happy to help.
