    It doesn't even look like a real car, just a mockup.

    Hmm. Mudflaps, evergreens, Fuldas, balloonish Econo Espirit profile, GT-R posterior. Mid eighties? Significance ?

    It was based on an actual car and could be driven. Not so much any more, though.

    Correct on all counts.

    No real significance; just a guy building his dream car. And, yes, with dreams like that, his money would have been better spent on therapy.

    It was a homemade "special," but it's documented online (article, photos, YouTube videos, etc.) and not incredibly difficult to find--especially for someone like Is. She probably had the location pinned based on the tires alone.

    Gratuitous "under the hood" shot:

    Don't want to know what's going on here:

    And here's what became of it:

    That interior shot should give away the base vehicle.

    Who? All I got when asked is that it's a one off and it's a 328 underneath. It's very weird looking. I can't decide if I like it or not, but I hate fully open cars, so it's not for me.
