Proof of Concept: 2019 US Econo-Car

Oh boy.  Whenever somebody sends in something like this, I have to cringe. Not because the car itself is a repugnant abomination beyond forgiveness and an offence against taste and decency, but because I can see future and the future goes like this: I write something snarky, people in the comments feed on that seed of revulsion and then 2 years later the owner/builder/seller finds this site and goes all rain man in the comments about how we've stolen photos and the commenters are loathsome communists who wouldn't know a good idea if it fell out of the bottom of a 747 and hit them in the head like a piece of supersonic blue ice.  Anyway...find this 2019 US Econo-Car offered for an undisclosed amount of cash located in Tucson, AZ via craigslist. Tip from Peter.

 From the seller:

2019 US Econo-Car 
VIN: yes 
condition: new 
cylinders: 4 cylinders 
drive: fwd 
fuel: gas 
odometer: 000 
paint color: red

After 26+ years of hard work/testing and upgrading prototypes, I have completely finished my U.S. Econo-Car. Car is crush-proof,(uses a NASCAR type chassis/roll cage), is Fire-Proof,(uses a on-board extinguisher system), Rust-Proof,(uses a non-metal body),gets over 50 MPG, could retail for $10,000, made in the USA. For photos and more details click on my direct ad link below.

I am looking to sell-out, for just a small portion of my investment.

See a better way to invest in the next big car startup company?


  1. And much like a turd it is pointed at both ends.

  2. His ad on racingjunk is written like one of those "time traveling companion wanted" type things.

    Any clue what this poor thing started out life as, or what powers it currently? Front says Isuzu Impulse/Geo Storm. Side says Hammerhead Eagle i-Thrust.

    1. I remember, Nissan NX is what the front end reminded me of.

  3. This whole add is terrifying.

  4. Well, it certainly is ugly if nothing else...

  5. Reminds me of the Jonny Cab in the 1990 Total Recall movie.

    Kinda like a self driving Uber, with a male version of Siri.


    Hey, maybe you could refit this to be a Jonny Cab?

    Jonny Cab!

  6. So ugly, it's cool!

  7. The interior photo in the ad looks like a model car interior. Anyone else see this? Floor pan gives hints of a Beetle, but the ad (and bulbous hood) say front engine / FWD.

    Gotta love the Testarossa side strakes, because of course that's what a 2019 economy car has.
