GURPS Vehicle Designs
Here is a fun little vehicle I designed. I haven't updated it for GURPS Vehicles 2nd Ed. (anybody want to do it?).
Mechanical Horse, TL 10
This is a high-tech vehicle for agents visiting low-tech worlds. It is in the shape of a horse. An optional biomorphic shell lets it pass as a normal horse, while the metal / bioplastic exterior could be perceived as a magical construct. It is based loosely on the warlock's horse in The Warlock In Spite of Himself (et al.) by Christopher Stasheff.
