Linda -
the draw you feel may be linked to the ever-so-slight resemblance to a
microbus from certain (low and from the front) angles... I rolled through the
images hoping to find some interior and suspension and drivetrain shots. No
luck, though. I wonder what powers it? Maybe if the builder was
suicidal, it 
will have an old Toronado drivetrain stuffed into that wide rear

The front also slightly resembles Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion ( a
car that 
always fascinated me), but of course this one has aircraft-style
front wheels, 
where the Dymaxion was more conventional in the front wheel

Interesting car (but not quite fascinating).
