What Would Niccolò Drive? 1985 Chevrolet Camaro Machiavelli Kit Car

Niccolò Machiavelli is best known for his work titled "The Prince" which was a treatise on ruling the underclasses, which it wasn't published until 5 years after his death and didn't become famous until years later (but the book published during his lifetime was his dialogue called "The Art of War").  Today, we present a car that was also underappreciated in its time, but is getting more attention in the afterlife. Find this 1985 Chevrolet Camaro Machiavelli Kit Car offered for $12000 in Wasilla, AK via craigslist.  Tip from Zach Z.


From the seller:

  3. At least he seems to have put a reasonably hot motor into it. Clearly he gets that it is better for your car to be feared than loved.

  4. Isn't the whole idea of a kit to make it look like a cool car?

    Or at the very least, a reasonable copy of an exotic?

    If yes, than what is the point here?

    Solution? Rename the car kit.

    Not Machiavelli.

    How about we call it a Simpson (as in Homer)?

    Or maybe a Barney Fife-mobile?

    At least name jives with the appearance.
