    No, it's the famous tachanka - a horse-drawn cart with the Maxim machinegun mounted, one of the deadliest weapons of the Russian Civil War ( 1918-1920 ):

    [​IMG]

    Nestor Makhno ( leader of the anarchist insurgents in the south of the former Russian Empire ) was believed to be its inventor - the first who'd fell upon the idea of adding the superiority in range and firepower of heavy water-cooled machineguns to the manouevrability of sturdy double-horse carts confiscated from the German colonists. Most probably not true - I read about the Boers using the similar fighting vehicles during the Anglo-Boer wars twenty years earlier.

    In modern Ukraine N. Makhno and his anarchist movement have gained some sort of cult following among the youngs who would align themselves neither to the socialist nor to the capitalist doctrine ( more or less like neo-Zapatista in Mexico ):

    Some even have their cars painted in the Makhno tachanka-style:

    Being the nice guy I am and that everyone has been telling Ev that she should get her own bike I thought it only appropriate while we were somewhere quiet like here at Laguna Del Mojanda in Ecuador that I give her a few riding lessons.


    Lesson 1: Honey you wont need that top it's only going to make you hot, TRUST ME im an expert on this sort of stuff.

    Thanks for another fascinating story. I will check out this Makhno character.

    Does the "tachanka" style refer to the camo pattern or the slogan (?) on the back of the car?

    The Boer war was heavily reported in the European press. I believe your assumption is on the mark.
