I can see myself tooling up the freeway at about 50......that's 50 feet per minute.

That black one with the fan on front is the perfect Steam Punk mobile.

Bill Powell 10-05-2012 09:16

that fan was its propulsion system

The Veyron looks like it was parked illegally.

That is a very common type of truck (and being that crappy) for a tow truck for illegally parked cars because they simply lift it up out of the parking space because that is the only way to get it if cars are parked in front and behind.

i kinda dig the yellow impala wagon from the first batch. change the color to anything other than yellow and reshape the rear window cut and it'd look like some sort of futuristic panel truck or hearse.

What would a VW be doing there??

Bill Powell 10-05-2012 11:37

two shots of a production VW from the thrities, two Hebmullers, a later custom coach car, a delivery vanthat is a VW in name only I can't remember what the orange coupe is called, and the white convertible is a Puma, a project belonging to a friend of mine named Gregory Hines. After 22,000 cars the Brazillian governtment in and said, "okay you're closed. Too much foreign involvement" and that was that. He does the Beck 550 Spyder there now. They're starting to move away from the VW air cooled engines.

The camouflaged one is a Lamborghini Countach?


Even if not, I have a funny story about the Countachs. So I was in a stereo store way back in the 80's. That some huge posters of luxury cars on the walls, one was a Countach. I had been talking to a sales guy, he was standing near me when I looked up at that poster, recognized it, and said, "Nice Countach". He said, "That's a Lamborghini!", as if I had tried to call it a Ferrari or something.

I tried to tell him that calling it that was the same thing as insisting a Mustang was "just a Ford". I told him they made other models too, including some luxury sedans. He wasn't having it.

Reminds me of too many of the goobers in gun stores today. Instant know-it-alls, can' be told anything.

Considering the first "Porsche" was a VW bug, it would make sense. If you look at them the Porche 911 and the VW Beetle look somewhat alike. Not twins but the resemblance is there - more like siblings.

I still don't see the attraction to the VW Beetle.
