Did you see the Uncle Tony's garage video on this car on YouTube?

Just watched enough of the video to wonder how Uncle Tony and his camera man lived to be as old as they are, but hey, I'm living proof .

The part where Uncle Tony takes the camera man for a ride in the Charger's trunk, brings back memories of my sneaking into the local drive in by way of my friends 57 Chevy's trunk.

Several, eh? As of 2013, apparently some were selling for north of US$1M. A far cry from the sub-$100K back around 2000 or so.

Haven't seen one on the streets for decades. If I recall correctly, I saw one back in the '80s, and then a couple at one of the Pebble Beach vintage races. It's been years.

Yeah, he had 2 or 3 of them. This was in 78 or so, they were just old cars then to most people. I was driving a 240Z then and remember thinking I liked my car better, and not just because I fit in it.

Rimac Automobili's Concept One electric car. Apparently, eight were made. Electric, AWD, 220mph ... Yes, please.








They're already working on the Concept Two vehicle:
