Where do you keep finding these weird, uhm, things? Made me chuckle. Man it's hideous!

I have no idea where to begin with this!  I suppose I could start with ugly, but the Pontiac Aztek is all that comes up!🤪

Now that one I know very well.  Nice choice!  I always found them ugly, but seeing it brings back some memories.

This week the car is from Poland. It is a 1982 FSR Tarpan 233. It was build as a pickup or station wagon. It was powered by a 4 cyl. engine either from Fiat 125p or Warszawa. it was build from 1973 on.

Seeing that photo sure brought back some memories.  I grew up in Poznan (one of the places where Tarpan was produced) and I have seen plenty of them on the streets of Poznan.  Those are utility vehicles, usually used on farms, and yes, I always thought they were not very pretty.  I didn't say "ugly", because they look to be build for function more than for form.  Funny thing is that the general arrangement of the early 2000s Chevy Avalanche (and the Cadillac version) is a bit reminiscent of Tarpan.

For more fun facts about this vehicle see  https://tractors.fandom.com/wiki/FSR_Tarpan 

Also Tarpan in polish is a breed of extinct wild hose (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarpan  ), so could we consider this vehicle as a Polish Mustang?  :D
