This car was on display at the "Dream Machines" car show in Half Moon Bay,
California either last year or the year before, I don't recall which. It
is quite simply the most insane vehicle I have ever seen in my life. The
engine takes up most of the passenger compartment, with the driver sitting
more or less alongside. The workmanship is to Pebble Beach standards.
This guy is the Leonardo da Vinci of hot rodders.
