    Well...isn't this a small, but very well informed world! That's awesome that you know the owner. I love watching the auto auctions, but dont really know much about cars.

    Sweet car for sure!

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    A verrrrry beautiful sports car.
    See what's possible!!! Concepts get vanillafied by non-designers for production. What's left is only a shadow of the original design. I can see why this baby is valued, it wins hearts.
    The year this Olds F88 was conceived, so was I. ;)

    Thanks for posting!!!

  • Looks like something George Barris would have had his hands in. Very similar to his style.
