No they were simply large sedans painted like Holstein cows. (white w/black spots)
'79 Buick Lesaber
'63 Buick Electra Limo
'73 Chevy Impala

I gave up the art car thing after all the traffic tickets, and general harassment by the police.

Nevermind.

I saw a glue art car that had been T-boned in a left turn lane once. It was really hard to not presume who was liable.

I wanted to do the whole fake fur and such. But being in high school, then college, I had no funds to truly make them into what I wanted. So they were simply rattle can painted. 2 of them ended up as demo derby cars, (by other owners) not because they were junk. But because they were poorly painted and massive land barges. The third died by moron owner (me). But it takes ruining things to learn to truly appreciate them.

Hmm-m-m-m, wonder WHICH caption is more appropriate? 1) Can you hear me now? Or, 2) Space-age Dumbo?

Unaerodynamic is actually the least of its vices...

The name is even worse for starters: Youabian Puma...
Then the price tag of over $1 million?
The size? It is Yuuuuge!
Quote:
At 20 feet in length and 7.75 feet in width, it turned two-lane streets into single-width passageways...
Practicality? Ehm, what?

But the looks...




The Youabian Puma is still a wonder of the modern world

If you happen to like blue, it is blue.
If you want a convertible that can be turned into a coupe, check.
You love Volvo parts? Got them.
What is not to like?
