I'll preface this post by saying this vehicle is NOT anywhere near the quality of some of those being posted here on AMMO, however it is what I call a "find".
Paid only $2 for it at a charity shop, was definitely incomplete, probably "Barbie", but certainly the right scale for MAM's to fit into. (Four at a squeeze.)
A big clean-up, degrease and a little paint later, and it turned out like this!
The tailgate actually folds down and a full picnic table and double door pantry pops out. The hood (bonnet) also lifts up but there's no motor.

So here's the Country Boy who has offered to take the two City Boys camping. Neither of the Urban Blokes is suitably dressed, and the Experienced Camper is wondering just what they have packed for this weekend of "roughin' it".

Fun shot!

The car looks like one of those little European automobiles, or perhaps a Smart Car. Small, but not unbelievably so.

Yeah, looks like Country Boy may be in for a rough weekend. Depends on the attitudes of his pals. If they're willing to learn some new skills, it might work out all right.

Glad you thought it fun Dave! I do too.
The car was VERY unloved and I should have photographed it earlier in its sad original state, but somehow I always forget to do a "before" shot.
I know you can spend SERIOUS money on a vehicle, but somehow I do get a bit of a thrill out of re-constructing some cheapie cast-off into a workable photographic prop.

I agree with Dave, it does look like a small vehicle. I like it, how many times have we all had to push a car at some point?? lol! lol!

He's actually getting his luggage out of the boot (trunk), but the camera angle doesn't pick that up. The damn picnic set kept wanting to pop out!
And yes, of course the car is "small"........certainly not a serious big money SUV, but hey, it's just a charity shop kitbash I did.

Hey I like your buggy Jim, ....but my fingers are just itchin' to dirty it up a bit!
Buggies are invariably dirty with lots of mud!
Use that old toothbrush sitting right there, dip it in a little brown dryish acrylic poster paint and scratch your finger backwards down the bristles, aim at your buggy and you'll have instant realistic mud spray patterns on the fenders and wheels! Give it a go! So easy and fun too!

That shark needs to get back in the water....soon!
