Mystery-Mobile

Teaser: The first person who identifies the purpose of this vehicle--what is it used for--will get a postcard from St. Paul, MN USA. As soon as it is identified, I'll provide another view that will clearly identify it for everyone else. Go for it!!

  10. My thoughts are with kris and edwin that the rear seat is for a youngster.

  11. OK, golf and to help an older person seems to easy, and it doesn't look like a mower. I like Sally's idea, but I'm going with..... for a child or a second passenter to be on the back of a bike.

    Hey, Kate, new pic of you, too! Nice.

  16. I think it is a bomb sniffer.

  17. It's a clown-mobile for use in a parade.

    It's a vehicle that travels on ice to get one to his/her ice house (ice fishing).

    My husband's guess: a girl scout cookie delivery vehicle.

  18. Olivier must be close, but given that this is St. Paul, I'm guessing it has something to do with snow. Am I close?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh I really wish I knew the answer! I want that postcard :)
    My first guess was something to do with mosquito abatement... but I don't know if there's a big mosquito problem in St Paul.
    Cheers!

  22. It's a motocycle/baby seat carriage? Lol! I don't know!

  23. I think I saw something very similar down town this morning.

    So is it a mobility scooter as we call them in the UK? The bit at the back is for strapping in a shopping basket [probably with its own wheels]. The user, having left the vehicle can then push the trolly round the shopping mall, come back, strap it on the back of the vehicle and then motor off home.

  24. Gerald, You have probably come the closest to how it's used, but.......

  25. Is it for collecting fallen leaves? The bag thing pops off so one can dump the leaves elsewhere?

  26. For collecting fallen leaves?

  28. Oh come on it's obvious! It's some form of alien space craft!

    It is called the Gizmo. It is a kind of NEV that is no longer produced. It was built by NEVCO (Neighborhood Electric Vehicle Corporation). Here's proof... http://www.nevco-ev.com/index2.html
