    There was a guy in my old neighborhood with a bug that would pop wheelies and run with the Camaros as well.... License plate 1BADVW. His name was Rex.

    And I was riding down the street in a canoe and all the windows fell out. I never did figure out how many eggs it takes to fill a cesspool.

    If you guys don't think it's possible for a modded VW bug to run 11's you need to get you heads out of your asses. Try searching, there are many QUICK Beetles.

    1964 Mercedes 230SL Pininfarina - built by Pininfarina for the 1964 Paris Auto Show for a customer who took delivery following the show. No more were manufactured, so it's one of one.

    Sounds a bit like P 4/5, only less cool... :D

    EDIT: the links posted by Far Out imply the vehicle was bult as a styling exercise and Pininfarina had hoped the car might go into production. I think that's just speculation. Officially, it's as I described it.

    Thanks, I fail to see that detail.

    Q: I there is only one, how come there is a red and a black car? What was the original paint?

    Pininfarina made it in silver - any colors on it since then were done by later owners.

    I'm pretty sure it is made in Japan... I know I've seen and read about it, but currently escapes my mind

    Edit: Found it

    The Japanese company Mitsuoka started selling the weird looking car Mitsuoka Orochi mid-engined sports for over US$90,000, starting January last year. Can you believe it? Of course it was in limited production (about 400 pieces)
