Vanuatu Automotive Scene

So on my trip to Vanuatu I scoured the shores to find something worth posting about. To put it plainly there was 1 performance car on the whole island (1996 WRX that was thrashed as hell!) oh.... and the Hummer....

Now really their 'automotive' scene consists of taxi drivers who pimp out their cars. We are talking 5% tints, headlight overlays, window banners, mesh grilles, big fake carbon GT wings. So I found this car:

Yes - it's a Daewoo..... They love these things over there. The tints are so dark you can't see through them. It's a pity I didn't get a picture of this car 'rolling' at night because it was covered in blue neons too.
Another part of the automotive scene consists of these off-road buggies:

250cc Four Stroke engines, one automatic gear. So much fun, would be even more fun with a big bike engine and a real gearbox on it. Was still great for drifts on the beach in its current guise. They are fully road rego'd and there are two businesses on the tiny island that run tours with these things, so you see them fairly often on the road.
