The Krate EH



This was a new one to us! Not a golf car, not a regular car, but more of a jalopy, or as noted a Krate. I don't know what the "EH" refers to. Notice also the Ontario license plates.

The sides are real wood, and it has a bike rack. A thing of beauty. And it was parked in plain sight in Lake Sumter Landing.

I don't think those vehicles would pass automotive inspections in Minnesota! We have such high standards!

Great catch! This vehicle obviously stands out, even there in the Villages. I'd be curious to know something more about it.

Bizarre cette voiture, un bon moyen de se montrer. Les agences de publicité devraient en profiter.

@ Dear Mr. Safe Leif Hagen: The problem is not the this vehicle would not meet the "high" standards of Minnesotans, it is that Minnesotans are usually too "high" to appreciate that said vehicle is above the usual "standards" and "laws" applied to motor-drive appliances.

These two are fantastic!

My first thought seeing the license plate was that it was Canadian, eh!

Definitely unique and I bet it's fun to drive.

I guess at least one snowbird has left Ontario and arrived in Florida to spend the next six months, eh?

Jacob said...

@ EG - Thanks, EG, for stopping by these two blogs...as if you don't have enough to do!

Do you think our snowbird drove the Krate EH down from Ontario?

Nah, me either...

Have a great Sunday!

This rod would certainly give the golf cart community a run for its money. Over-the-top crate! Great capture Jacob. (You really should have waited for the owner and taken a ride.)
