We have a preoccupation with quirky cars and other vehicles. They all have a story behind them.
We acquire rare, unusual and quirky cars for private clients and for film, TV, media, advertising and promotional projects. If you need something odd with wheels, you’ve come to right place whether you’re Joe or Josephine Bloggs looking for an inexpensive future classic or corporate client needing any number of vehicles for a movie.
If you’re looking for something we don’t have on our Cars page then just email info@quirkyrides and tell us what you’re looking for.
We first became known as a consequence of our involvement in the Man From UNCLE movie for which we supplied more than a dozen vehicles, including some of the main players as you can see from the movie trailer.
We collaborate with people you may have heard of on projects related to quirky rides of all descriptions, so watch this space for future developments.
There are many reasons to be interested in the cars that people have forgotten, laugh at or that “made it” but still look odd.
Some of the oddball cars we’re interested in had a major impact on car design, whether it’s the transition from electric cars (which were the norm before the internal combustion engine ever sat in a car) to petrol/diesel and back again, or the preoccupation with aerodynamic form and the need to reduce drag coefficient, the expression of national pride and preoccupation shown in the US “Space Race” cars of the 1950s and 1960s, or the fantastic curios that emerged from the Eastern side of the Iron Curtain during the Cold War.
This initial blog post is just by way of saying “hi” to you all and to thank you for your interest in what we do. Stay tuned for regular blog posts on all kinds of quirky rides, events and happenings for those who find themselves diagonally parked in a parallel universe.
