For real are just artwork?
Kinda looks like concept art to me, but if it's real then it's truly a work of steampunk art.

No, It's a 3D illustration, but fun to see the imagination.

I thought it was obvious it was a 3D illustration , but there's one surefire way to tell. There's an obvious mechanical error on the car that'd keep it from moving. Can you find the error?

The metal piece connecting the small wheel to the big wheel. Why do people so this kind of thing when they create steampunk art?

For copyright reasons?
Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

Well, ummmmm, maybe the artist just wanted the car permanently in "park", so no one would steal it.... ::)  (which is akin to Wells' "copyright" reason ;))

When I see that, it detracts from the art. Even when Steampunks are not too technical, they tend to be finicky about their mechanical parts.

This is kind of ridiculous, not to mention unsafe, and probably not Steampunk, but I thought it was fun enough to post. Mexican designer Adelkas Studio converts old-style VW fender into a go kart / quadcycle mash-up. He calls it the "La Bugkart Wasowski"

El primer guarda fangos de Volkswagen hecho go kart, La Bugkart Wasowski - Fuskart - Volkspod

I think it'd probably look better if the designer had bothered to make 4 miniature fenders   ;D

A fender with fenders? Recurse you!
By the power of caffeine do I set my mind in motion
By the Beans of Life do my thoughts acquire speed
My hands acquire a shaking
The shaking becomes a warning

It's a fractal VW fender!

Anyhow, just found out that it's not an original idea. Here we have VW fender mini motorcycles...

It's amazing what you can do with lawn mower parts....

This frame can be very Steampunk with the appropriate colors


For the trip to the supermarket...


For the evening at the pub...

Finally on display at the Workshops Museum, a Marshall roller and a Garrett traction engine.

Now we're getting somewhere! - bikes and quads with lawnmower engines are all fine an dandy - but let's get the Steam back into Steampunk!

BG class.

Tee hee  ::)
My first thought was, Brass Goggles has its own class? Tee hee.

At least I didn't think it was a class reserved for trains designed by Barry Gibb, though I would love to know how he would design a train.

I didn't get to see that until the 1980s in a documentary, but didn't they have a Boeing 720 for their 1979 tour painted in black and red?

That would be Caesars' Chariot, owned by the record company and Caesar's Palace, replacing Starship One. The Bee Gees were the last clients of the aircraft; Led Zeppelin having fallen apart while touring before them, and effectively ceasing to be afterwards, so no-one used it until it was disposed of.
