It's an escape pod for a real truck!

'53 Buicks, at 4 per truck, it's a good thing they only sold 190,000 of them.

More, over at

They seem to have been very fond of the 3-evenly-spaced-axles-with-a-steering-axle-at-ech-end concept...

The ZIS-E134 in the middle picture says 3 driving axles on a single track? Oh, I get it, all 3 wheels are in line on the same path. Duh

I guess they steer it like a tank or bulldozer, by braking one side. If the left side was in a rut, and they tried to turn left by braking the left side and driving the right, the left side tires would take a hell of a beating, if it didn't rip them off the rims entirely. :eyebrow:

Makes our Command car look puny.

I love the screaming Hitler movie meme.

The shortened roof looks like a sixties Mercury Turnpike Cruiser. Can't figure out quite how the tailgate/ramp works. It appears to be hinged at the bottom but that would be way too low for the platform the snow machines are on. The platform could be hinged at the front and drop at the rear to load/unload then jack it level, but why bother jacking it? Maybe to stash stuff underneath.
The truck has snow tires but not enough ground clearance to move in serious weather. It' an odd machine.
