That iron work car looks super gay.

So any idea where the iron Beetle was?

I understand that the turtle car has a roof rack kit comprising of a disc in blue, white and green supported on four elephants.

"I really like the iron-work beetle."

Very unusual, it is! Call me 'Corny,' but...I think it would be "cute" for...a wedding of a couple that likes beetles. :-)

I really like the top convertible! Don't know what it is, neither! Alex? Anyone? LOVE the color! Yum! :-D

A TP fan, Roger? :-)

TC: The car (top one, at any rate:-) ) is a Plymouth Prowler ... started as a concept car, went into production in the US in 1997 (during which time ALL of them were this colour: Prowler Puplre Metallic!) No production in '98 for some reson, then started again in '99 with a choice if 12 colours.

Philocalist: You're AWESOME! Thank you! Just looked it up: http://snipurl.com/1eofua Too durn bad it's [as some other classics!] a thing of the past! Shoot! Wonder if Leno has one of these!

I really liked the Prowler when it was first shown. There's one in our neighbourhood. Dodge were "so cool" back then, the Viper was comparatively new, the PT cruiser just a concept, Sidewinder Pickup concept, and much shorter design cycles in body design.

I almost commented on the Prowlers, that is a serious obsession, I've only got the two smallest sizes there.
