Are you sure that's not a Zimmer?

No comment. Actually.....Jesus Christ that thing is huge.

Am I the only one that thinks cars like this are super ugly and in bad taste? the roofline doesn't fit with the rest of the car at all. Sorry, no offense to the owner or anything, just wondering if others agree.

@Remi - I'm with you. They're horrible, all of them - Zimmers, et al - and don't even hold any kitsch appeal (to my eye, at least).

Amazing what tasteless rich folk will blow their money on. I would like to see this styling abortion 50 years from now after sitting outside with the top down under a tree. Probably would be an improvement.

More interesting than an Excalibur but... Ugh. I think just I threw up a corduroy bowtie.

Even more ostentatious than the '70 stutz bearcat:

I think I'd be embarrassed driving this. I certainly wouldn't want the top down!

Nah, you guys have got it all wrong. this thing is so far over the top that it's beautiful. I'd love to drive it. Complete excess.

Of course, ya' got to be in the right mood to pull it off...

I have one, possibly two, of those hood ornaments available. $1000 each, let me know.

ABSURD! This is the result of too many cartoons and not enough vegetables. You need a bus drivers licence i suppose.

It looks like the car that cruella deville from 101 dolmations drives.
