5 fascinating ‘non-car’ vehicles built by Japanese automakers

lexus-f-sport-road-bike Car-makers spend the vast majority of their time, well, making cars. If they didn’t, of course, they wouldn’t be considered car-makers at all. But some of these manufacturers have also tried their collective hands at building vehicles that certainly AREN’T cars.

And now Google is taking us to the Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania, Africa, a park to a population of over 100 wild chimpanzees. Also living in the park is a ...
