Beyond all the mainstream cars, the exotic rich-jerk toys, the bold and/or misguided concept cars, every car show hides a selection of weirdos, usually stashed down in a basement or corner somewhere. The New York Auto Show was no exception, so, here, feast your eyes, ears, and, why not, nose, on these weirdo specimens from the New York Auto Show.

Oh, and that Altima on caterpillar tracks I now believe was actually made by Nissan, as an attempt to make the Altima seem exciting for the Canadian International Auto Show.

I guess that didn’t really work out, so Nissan added those yellow headlight covers and roof rack. And then stuck this thing in the basement at the New York show, away from their actual booth. It’s sort of sad, really.
