Clown speed-freaks/motor-heads driving at insane speeds, recklessly weaving in and out of traffic, throwing rubber chickens at any and all fellow motorists who dare to tell them to slow down. That's what I envision when I think about what this little car's hay-day must have been like. But now it just sits on the side of the road as an advertisement for a car repair garage. It has been retired, how sad is that?

I wonder how much business the owner actually gets as a result of his little car sitting out there for all to see? I would think such a contraption would decrease rather than increase his customer base. Just imagine. You drop off your car in the morning and in the afternoon you pick it up, only to find it modified with flames, external header exhaust pipes, mag wheels and a rear spoiler. Plus you might also find a whoopie cushion on the driver's seat, clown shoe-sized dirt prints on your floor mats and/or a gigantic pickle jammed up the exhaust pipe.
