'Russian efficiency regarding train arrival and departure times is astonishing.'

Soviet 'time travelling truck' found in western Siberia

By The Siberian Times reporter

Or is it a specially invented weapon to destroy Western food imports in retaliation for sanctions?

Another theory is that this strange creation is a Russian version of a Mad Max transformer? Whatever the case, the bizarre vehicle has become a star attraction in the Urals and Surgut, western Siberia. 

In fact, it seems to be a project of Siterra LLC, a Chelyabinsk company famed for clever pranks which is also a producer of special vehicles. Previously, the company exhibited a lump of the famous Chelyabinsk meteorite - only for it to be stolen.

The crazy vehicle is reported to be the work of Dmitryi Posadskyi, an artist and sculptor from the closed town of Ozersk.

It was a practical joke, and the 50 kg of space debris was an ordinary rock painted black, presumably to the disappointment of the thieves when they tried to sell the valuable cosmic boulder. 

The crazy vehicle is reported to be the work of Dmitryi Posadskyi, an artist and sculptor from the closed town of Ozersk, who was commissioned by Siterra to produce it. 

Called 'Rust of the past, inspiration for the future', it won a prize for 'the most creative use of scrap metal' at the LOM-2015 Festival in Yekaterinburg ahead of its unveiling at an oil and gas exhibition in Surgut.
