An original riddle:

My prefix is a type of car.
My suffix means you can’t see far.
My infix concerns the outside.
Together, I remove the inside.

What am I?

You are a:

TAXIDERMIST

My prefix is a type of car.

A TAXI is a type of car.

My suffix means you can’t see far.

When there is MIST your field of vision is limited and "you can't see far".

My infix concerns the outside.

The DERMIS is another word for the skin, i.e. the outside of a body or fruit, etc.

Together, I remove the inside.

The role of a taxidermist is quite literally to 'remove the inside' of a deceased animal and replace it with a packing material, to preserve it as a lifelike representation for all time...

    $\begingroup$ Referring to a taxidermist as an "animal inside remover" actually makes them sound even more creepy in an already creepy profession. $\endgroup$ – JPhi1618 Jan 15 at 20:00

    $\begingroup$ @JPhi1618 Might want to use a vague word like "them", so as not to spoil it for people by accident $\endgroup$ – Redwolf Programs Jan 16 at 3:39
