Carcosa Wacky Races: some pictures

By way of background, inspiration and, you know, just in case you don’t know what a Zil is and are afraid to ask: here are some pictures…

Zils through the ages. The 1940s rocket car is my favourite, the middle one is what you find driving around Toxic Tartary. The one on the right is Vladimir Putin's very own custom Wacky Racer. For reals.

Just because it's a Mustang, doesn't mean it has to be totally boring.

How can you not love Aunty Entity? Some fine examples of Dune Buggies

…courtesy of this Mad Max gallery site. See also fan built lunacy.

is it a plane? Not quite. It's an ekranoplan

A whole bunch more of the same ekranoplan here. Takes advantage of “wing in ground” effect, which you’d think wouldn’t be such a good thing.

A Hell train, from the same Grim Fandango gallery as the Bone Wagon in the chargen post

Doing it right:

…that’s from Herb DeGrasse’s gallery of movie cars.

Doing it wrong:

…Carcosan road signs.

Damnation vans.
