Have you ever been walking down the street and seen a car you simply had to take a photo of? You’re not alone! Owning the same make and model as everyone else isn’t fun anymore. Mods are the new cool, and these cars below take it to a different level. From realistic animals to drivable planes on wheels, you know when you’ve seen a spectacular specimen. Of course, some people aim too high and miss the mark, but they still proudly drive their unique monstrosities. For those that do it right, though, the mods are jaw-dropping. Here are cars people spotted on the road that will make anyone stop on the street and pull their phones out!
#1: Wind It Up
Believe it or not, wind-up cars aren’t just children’s toys. In fact, the first wind-powered vehicle, or the wind-up car, was invented in the 1300s by Guido da Vigevano. While no one knows whether or not it ever hit manufacturing lines, it had to be an absolute blast to drive! It wouldn’t be impressive now, but in the 1300s, it would have seemed like magic.
Whether or not this is an ode to the original, it’s still pretty cute. The real question here is whether or not they added a wind-up function. How neat would it be to wind the gears up and then hear the thrum of the engine? It’s probably just cosmetic, but that’s okay.
