Its a go kart with a plastic body on it replicating a dodge ram. You can see the signature 'headlights' right after he turns right. It is not street legal.
You can find them on used thrift sites.
I finally found it! Its the front bumper portion of a '98 to '00 Ford Ranger.
Couple of model kit possibilities?
They look like these.
If you go back about 15 years and you had a cheap Honda and wanted a custom car super bad, but you're broke and would settle for literally anything that's not factory equipment, these are what you got. Often found with fake AutoZone vents.
Scratch that it's a car built by Tim Hands, it's a V12 designed by this guy to comply with the Individual Vehicle Approval (IVA) inspection manual as a one off vehicle. It's an XJS engine with loads of other bits bolted on to a custom framework.
You can view some of the book in a preview at the link
Below is what I originally wrote before I found the car.
> Okay some sleuthing on this car brings me a few snippets of information.
> It has a 5343cc engine, which is the exact engine that Jaguar was using in their cars from the 70's and onwards. Given it's UK registered it's most likely donor car will be a Sovereign or an XJ. I can't find reference to any other V12 with that exact capacity.
Dodges of that era used that Pentastar logo: https://cs.copart.com/v1/AUTH_svc.pdoc00001/PIX64/93db34fc-c27e-4b02-9b3b-b5cf0653f14f.JPG (it's a Dodge Shadow if you look at the auction) or http://www.wikiwand.com/en/Dodge_Charger_(L-body)
Heavily modified Toyota MR2.
It was on sale on Gumtree a while ago.
So it’s a kit? Anything else have a windscreen with curves like that?

Special 4 lug system so the pit stops are 20% faster?
Could be the builder was inspired by this one?
Until the photog upgrades to something not made by Fisher-Price we may never know.
Oh I love that book so so much, I still like to spend hours just flipping it's pages on rainy weekend afternoons. I found the book on Amazon but it's in German. I don't know if that's an issue. Mine is in Hungarian, so it's definetely available in other languages too.
Its gotta be a 90s merc. EDIT: Almost certainly a 96+ E class.
The rear looks boxy and front looks like a late 90s e class. No wrap around lights. Its NOT a caddy deville because of something called the "prestige gap"-- the gap from the front wheel to the end of the fender/start of the front door. Its much larger than a fwd based car (caddy) and RWD or RWD based cars have this much larger gap. Look up a prestige gap. It's a 90s benz. Very likely an e class but could be late 90s s. I just dont see an s class tho, it's too small.
EDIT: Notice the rims. They look like they're solid. Very very few cars have rim that are so fulk they look solid from a blurry pic. It's likely this car https://www.amazon.com/1998-Mercedes-Benz-E320/dp/B0119TT0A6
Taffy Pink Crocs
Hmm. Well the image in this book is just a stock photo.
Could just be a fake car, based off a couple different ones.
The front with the lights reminds of of a Triumph 1800/2000 Roadster
He could email the guy who wrote the catalog and ask. I have his email if you’d like to try. He even wrote a nifty book:
You’ll find the right answer in there, but if you’re short of cash you can find the right answer here.
This was taken from the 36:40 mark in the Disney Plus documentary Marvel Studios: Assembled. They were using it to film the scene where >!Loki and Sylvie are escaping from the doomed planet!<.
Besides the cool wheels and large tires, it was moving along pretty well, so it obviously has some sort of suspension. Custom made electric car is my guess, but I was hoping that they didn't fabricate something from scratch, and built off an existing vehicle. Any guesses?
Out of curiosity, I wanted to see how much that image could be cleaned up, and this is what I was able to pull off. Sadly, because it's a JPEG, there's not all that much that can be done before it starts to really badly artifact. Was an interesting exercise in color correction nonetheless.
T&Di seems to be the brand
Here's a different model but notice the similarities.
Same unit on handlebar, same fenders
Edit: Same e-bike here
Two people stole an Audi A8L and Range Rover from my friends house last night. They definitely cased his place out because of the circumstances. I have two ring videos here.1 and here.2
I appreciate any help. My first thought was Tacoma, then maybe a GMC because of the possible foot step in the rear bumper and the modern style tail lights as they pull away. But I feel strongly on Toyota Tundra because of the shape of the front turn signal, the grill, the possible driver side door emblem.
Things that are throwing me off are the possibility’s of chrome side molding and chrome rear bumper.
Mirror turn signal indicators
Reverse lights are on the upper half of the tail light
Both turn signal and tail light have a split design (upper and lower) that follows a possible body line
Edit: link here.1 fixed
The original post is an Accord. My response was to your picture of a Triumph Acclaim directly above here. If you click on the link I supplied, you can see it is a Honda Civic, not an Accord.
Is this one the same model?
Here is the Amazon listing for the Denso car horn. it has the same markings and product numbers as the photo you posted. The description lists the models and years this horn is compatible with - a bunch of Toyotas throughout the 2000s, although I don't know if that's an exhaustive list.
I had less luck searching Koito, but it appears they make replacement headlight assemblies for 2000s Toyotas as well. Probably very much a long shot, but here is their website's contact page if you think they could be helpful in narrowing your model and year search.
You've also reported this to the police, right? Your insurance may be able to help track down the car as well if you provide them the video and part photos. Good luck to you.
To be honest, and I know this isn't the answer you really want, Wikipedia is the best resource for this. For the majority of better-known car companies, there's a timeline table at the bottom of the page that lists all the models they made and it's super easy to click on all those links to explore the individual models.
I know that doesn't lend itself well to gift-giving though. I would suspect that if you want to go the actual physical book route, you'll probably want to get at least a couple books, perhaps one dealing exclusively with American cars and another for European cars, maybe even a third one for Asian makes. You are right that there are just too many cars out there for one book, but you could get a decent start with a couple books that focus on different parts of the world
This one sounds promising for American cars (with the disclaimer that I'm not familiar with it)
Specifically European encyclopedias look harder to come by.
I have this book personally and I find it's a good overview, though as you said, not totally comprehensive. I feel like your girlfriend would be thrilled to get something like this as a starting point
Edit 2 - ah, I just looked at your links showing what you want and realized my suggestions are more like what you didn't want. Oh well,.that's all I got unfortunately. Not sure how to find if what you want is out there somewhere
They're fairly universal Take your charger to Halfords or NAPA or wherever you are. They'll sell you the right lead/connector.
There's a page with different types of fire trucks.
I'm sure we have some other books that feature different trucks (have 2 boys, both gear heads) - this was the first I grabbed 😁
