It's an extra crumple zone because the brakes lock up. Or because the owners other appendage is too small!

I can only assume they need more luggage room, maybe they were a drummer in a band. It got some aftermarket engine tuning including twin carbs and electronic ignition.

                                                                            AARDVARK !!!


I think this the best word to sum up this car !!!!!  It is so ludicrous as to be hilarious.  I just hope that the original bodywork behind that proboscis has not been messed around too much.

Good luck to whosoever buys it.

Previous owner has obviously heard of Montecarlo "brake issues" and wanted a bigger crumple zone....

Hope it gets more sympathy from the next owner or put out of it's misery.

The answer is simple, because of the brake issue the car obviously has run into the back of a Bond Bug or similar and that is all that remained after the accident..........

Bit of filler and jobs a good 'un
