Default What $196.9K will buy...in Bazarro Land

Zimmer Golden Spirit...the 2 Door SPORT convertable model no less. Saw this puppy in traffic last week, and felt blessed that I saw "IT" coming up behind me on the interstate today. These were made in Syracuse, NY in the early 1980's, now located in NJ. Just didn't have the heart to post up the link.

Based on a new Mustang GT chassis.

Stunning to see the driver really, kinda expected to see Snoop Dog, etc behind the wheel. Guy looked like he should be driving a Bently, Maybach, etc. What in God's name makes you choose one of these. Try to take note of the deluxe turn signals, Tractor Supply sells a similar kit for utility trailers. I can only assume that for damn near 200 large, they don't source them from there.

Should be mandatory to wear a feather hat, and full length mink coat with this baby...underneath you can wear your velvet track suit too. Sorry, if it's too much of a visual.

Makes me wonder what else is in this guys garage...really.

I'm just thankful that this guy who has plenty of dough, if different taste, will not be competing with me on my next Porsche. Reminds me of "I'm going to get you sucker" a fun film, well short of great, but fun none the less...

Nice find! The reason why they source it at Tractor Supply is that their customers have never been there.

Not to my taste either but beats running into another Prius or Saturn POS. At least this dude cares about what he is driving. Beats 99% of the cars out there for interestingness.

I've had rednecks ask me what an old man like me is doing driving around in a kiddie car...Others who say my 993 is "cute"...To be honest, some people would say it doesn't look any stranger than a 993 with two bikes on the roof...In the end, you're driving a car and he's driving a car. It just doesn't frickin' matter who's drivng what, does it?

Talk about a chit box.

I cant believe they still make these things. No car builder worth his wrech could convince me that these are built with real passion.

One can only assume that pedophile Liberace type characters lust after these things along with all the old school New Orleans pimps.....

What a car
