These are my favorite quotes from the sellers description:

"no test rides" -- I suspect this will turn out to be a deal-breaker.

"may need some kinks worked out " -- Perhaps, but highly unlikely given the stellar reputation of both Harleys and Pontiacs of this vintage.

"We prefer you to pick it up in person " --Presumably this preference cuts down on time spent in public with this most heinous of monstrosities.

"This must be picked by June 3rd"--This date likely marks the return of the currently out-of-town family member who has repeatedly threatened to Baker Act the entire motley crew responsible for this vehicle's continued existance.

That is so many different kids of awesome I can't even believe it.

  • Dubs? check
  • Air horns? check
  • Ape-hangers? check
  • Diamond plate trim? double-check
  • Mid-engined? check
  • Huge outlaw wing, removable roof for open air motoring? check
  • Pressureless brake pedal wired to stop 3000lbs with a motorcycle tire? absolutely!

Chip Foose eat your heart out.

Don't forget the trucker lights on the wing, the continental spare tire kit and the VW rear bumper.

One more thing: Skid Steering!!!

That Guy said: The right brake lever on the handle bars stops the right rear wheel and the left stops the left

In the center, a nice design feature is that when you put it in drive, the shifter is in your crotch.

that continental tire kit just adds to the thing. And the random lights on the bottom are sweet too.

I love how he defines the ebay term "reserve" when someone asks what the reserve is.

On the shifter.

It's like that mono-wheel thing Mr. Garrison invented only less practical.

His answer wasn't on their when I read it. That's funny. I'm waiting to see what it sells for 3 days left and it's at over $600.

What would it be worth to own the ugliest car in town?

Could I run it at the challenge or does it break too many rules?

'The original owner died before it could be finished'. Good thing, I'd say.
