What do you do with this? Comments below.


  1. The obvious choice: A Muntz Jet!

    Price might be a bit steep tho...

    Le Muntz Jet

    -Stan (who has a soft spot for jet powered classic convertibles)

  2. The gas heater in my volkswagon leaves a bit to be desired.

  3. Prius, no question! To counter those pious planet huggers.

  4. I think a scirocco mk2 or a shelby charger would make a good home for this - minus the rear seats but who needs them when you're a pilot

  5. Definitely a Prius! Perhaps with pinups painted on the front fenders or maybe some Rat Fink graphics.

  6. The obvious choice would be an Oldsmobile Rocket 88.

  7. Hudson Super Jet...1953 & 1954

  8. I have a 70's Le Car that needs an engine. Not sure how it would work with the transmission, but I am willing to try!

    1. Holy Smokes, isn't that from the TV show Starusaki de Hatchu?!

    2. This one gets my vote, too.

      But hey, this is not a democracy.

      What say you, Jefe?

      -Stan (who obviously has no life, checking back multiple times on a thread about sticking a jet engine in a used car...)

    3. Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

  12. My companions got some information about the vehicle thinking about his new vehicle, since he purchased another vehicle for his family and realize he is stressed over their vehicle care since he doesn't have any desire to be to put their family in risk at the season of going via vehicle, I enlightened him concerning the mobile mechanic Sacramento, CA the expert vehicle detailer that he will give you the best proposal for your vehicle care.
