„I know it’s strange, but your body really turns me on!”
(Vixen Palmer to Janet in Russ Meyer’s „Vixen!“, 1968)
This is about as rare as it could get camping-vehicle-wise: 1986
Vixen 21 TD.
Just 376 of these 21 feet long funky futuristic BMW M21 turbodiesel
pushers with a Garret turbo and a Renault-sourced 5-speed manual (for a motorhome!) transmission were produced
by the Vixen Motor Company in Pontiac, Michigan. The fact that the car looks like from the future is no wonder: Its creator was former DeLorean man Bill Collins. And again a few good ideas died in beauty after three years only, like the aerodynamic body that was low enough to fit in most standard (US-)garages or the pneumatic lift-top. A four seat dinette was created by flipping the front passenger seat. Standard features were including a generator, a water heater and a 600 watt Sharp microwave. Note: There is no passenger door. The import of the posted vehicle from North Carolina to Hamburg has been topic before in a blog in the famous German news magazine „Der Spiegel”.
