The OX

See that Gordon Murray has been at the drawing board again.

Wonder if you can get it through an IVA ?

Looks pretty easy considering it's a box with wheels
Got to be easier than a 7

I drink to forget
I breath to pi55 my ex wife off (and now my ex partner)

Brilliant !
I (we) would love one; with some accommodation on the back, and then head off, where the road takes me (us) !

I like it - it's like a 2CV truck.

It has all been tried before and failed, back in late 1970s by both Ford and Vauxhall and in the 1990s with the Africar project.

I have to be honest and say I don't need one and TBH I'm sure there are better vehicles out there.

I'd quite like one though

The problem isn't the concept it is the market ---- the 3rd world market see a concept like this as neo-colonialism.

Thought this was going to be about John Entwistle!
As said previously it has been tried before and expect it will not be the last but good luck for it. Wasn't one of the wooden Hustlers designed for this type of thing?





Phoned the local ramblers club today, but the bloke who answered just
went on and on.

Looks familiar to the VW EA489/ Hormiga/ Basistransporter



The OX could work if it is turned into an 'hipster' campervan.
