  1. This is a scam. I actually worked building a few of these at a place in Santa Barbara called Prototype Source. We built some cool Vehicles there. Hot Wheels Twin Mil, The new Beettle, Audi TT, Hershey kissmobile, bunch os fun stuff. In fact the picture look like it might be SB, Riviera in the backdrop.
    I believe the budget on the Weiner was around $350,000 maybe more???
    Also, the above is listed as a 77. The chassis is probably more like a 2000-2004ish?
    It is funny that this ad popped up - the car blogs have been reporting that you can Airbnb the Weiner for $136 a night.

      Yeah, it's pretty clear its a scam. 77 would have sealed beam headlights and the dearth of info in the ad is deafening. I'd like to hear more about the Prototype Source gig though!

    2. Makes sense it's a scam. I can hear the call now...

      "I'm sorry sir, the wiener-mobile has been sold, BUT we do have a tie fighter rolling chassis available..."

  6. Yeah I figured out it was scam or more likely a practical joke. I’d hate to have the contact number in the ad.

    That said, it’s crying out for a set of these

    Or maybe the low ball offer means something else.
