When one of his favorite sheep dogs, Floss, passed away, farmer Dave Isaac decided to memorialize his beloved friend by converting his car into a giant sheep dog.

Isaac spent over £ 2000 converting his Peugeot estate car into an exact replica of Floss. The car could achieve a top speed of 40 mph when Isaac used it to round up his herd.

According to Isaac, "sheep aren't known for their intelligence"---unlike dogs---"and they didn't seem to notice the difference" between Floss the dog and Floss the automobile.

Unfortunately for Isaac, the wood frame he built onto the car and the addition of all the fur made the car a tad unwieldy to drive around a small farm. "They were things we didn't really consider when we built her," he said, "so with a heavy heart she is going on E-bay."
Lucky for Isaac the money he spent on Floss the car wasn't entirely in vain. According to Ebay, the winning bid was £ 2000, the same amount it cost to build the Flossmobile (our name, not his).
