A couple of years ago my wife and I were walking down Whitehall street in London when we saw the most interesting “car” come to a stop beside us at a light. At first, I wasn’t sure what the hell I was looking at, and when I finally realized how cool it looked, I didn’t have time to get my camera up to take a picture before it moved on…
The “car” had no frame or body: it looked like a sofa with a coffee table in front and a small television set with rabbit’s ears on top of the table. There were two guys lounging on the couch in very comfortable positions. That’s it. It looked like they simply plopped their living room furniture down in the middle of the street. Except this pile of stuff moved along with the rest of the traffic. Somehow they were steering and braking/accelerating with conceiled controls. It really looked neat.
I tried googling for this, but failed miserably.
Has anyone ever seen this vehicle?
Is this a one-of-a-kind thing or is it a common Brit thing to make cars that look like furniture?
Is it street legal in London?
and finally… does any have a picture? Please?
