maybe this could be the r/c car kit bash hack job that has been floating around here as these also seem constructed from whatever was lying around

Definitely marine inspired with the boat fender for a coupler/pusher pad and round port holes for windows. Wonder if it's got a marine engine in it?

You sure that they are portholes?

Kinda look like they have toilet seats on the outside to me.

Uncle Bob should have gone this route with his outdoor layout. :)
