The FAB1 Mobility Scooter

A mobility scooter isn’t the most likely choice of vehicle to modify, and neither is an intended transformation into a pink Rolls-Royce. But 74-year-old grandfather, Barry Vann, has turned his mobility aid into Lady Penelope’s Rolls Royce from Thunderbirds.

Barry’s FAB1 Mobility Scooter features the Rolls Royce logo, chrome grill, the spirit (which is actually a silver spray-painted Barbie), a Lady Penelope passenger, and of course – Barry likes to dress up as Parker. Brilliant fun and we salute you Barry “Parker” Vann!
