Happy Thanksgiving to all our American readers, and to everyone else, well, we hope your day is fantastic, even though we’re taking the day off. But we’re absolutely, unquestionably thankful for all of you, our readers, the glorious people who somehow share the same painful obsessive ardor for automobiles that would normally get us shunned from polite society. You’re all wonderful, and we simply could not do any of this without you. Thank you. Also, in honor of this Turkey Day, you may wish to contemplate these Anadols, Turkey’s most Turkish of cars.
Take these two, for example:
The Anadol A1 on the left was a Reliant-engineered fiberglass workhorse, and the four-door A2 that came after it was the first four-door fiberglass sedan in the world! Here, watch a video about it:
And next to the A1 up there is the incredible Anadol Böcek, an asymmetrical off-road wonder buggy first made for the Turkish army and from there, humanity.
There’s also the Super Turkish Monster, the STC-16, a sort-of Turkish Datsun 280Z made of fiberglass and dreams:
Here’s another video of it racing:
Anyway, thanks for being you, and have a fantastic holiday, if that’s what you’re doing! If not, well, we’re taking the day off anyway.
