What did I see today?

No chance to get a photo, and it came from my left and turned right to go the way I came, so I couldn't follow it, either.

Description:

Minivan of some kind. Imagine a black box with windows, but with Chevy HHR fenders and the nose of a Nissan Cube (or maybe a Ridgeline). Ugly as can be. Unrecognizable make logo, and what I thought might have said MBV on the lower right corner of the rear door.

Valiant attempt at building the first wheelchair vehicle from the ground up. Built by a start up venture at the old Hummer plant. The business shut down in May. Saw one near the plant last year, I thought that it looks like a 150% scale Honda Element.

Now that I know what it is, some of the design and styling decisions make sense and I don't mind it so much, but that first impression is a doozy.

This. My wife drives an Element, I remember the first time seeing one of these and thinking someone smooshed another door into one of them. I think that (a 3 row Element) would be a wonderfully useful, albeit slow and not too pretty vehicle.

Which is one of the many reasons I love this place. And they are all willing to help.

Just saw one of these today. Pretty ugly but I can see how it serves its purpose well.

I saw a Victory Vision with training wheels. Seriously. I asked myself why anybody would go that route instead of a trike or a Can Am.
