I saw this weird little car parked in front of someone’s house (“If you’ve ever mowed your lawn and found a car, you might…”) outside of Cherryville, Missouri a few weeks ago.
I’ve seen a similar car before. There was a Saturday morning cartoon show with a car like this (it talked) as one of the main characters back in the 70’s. I think there were a bunch of teenagers, à la Scooby Doo, and I think it took place near a beach. But that’s neither here nor there.
Anyway, I have several questions about this car. First and foremost, of course, is what year make & model is it?
[li]Is it a factory model or some kind of kit?[/li][li]How much did one cost when new? How much would a used model cost today?[/li][li]Are they still made new (kits or production)?[/li][li]Is it street/highway legal?[/li][li]What kind of gas mileage does it get?[/li][li]What its horsepower?[/li][li]Where is the engine (front or back)?[/li][/ul]
I’m sure I’ll thinkg of others, but that’s all for now.
