Blastolene B-702. These are the same guys that built Jay Leno’s Blastolene Special. This custom hot rod is 20 feet long [±6m] and nearly 9 feet wide [±2.7]. It is powered by 700 cubic V12 GMC truck heart back from 60s mated to a Allison 4-speed gearbox. You can’t say it has very unique design having in mind custom Streamliner or Auburn cars, but it is seriously respectful peace of art.

Driving an Aston Martin DBR1, Stirling Moss gives his customary wave to Peter Collins as he passes the latter’s Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa as they power across the tortuous mountains of the Targa Florio course during the 1958 running of the classic race. Moss was regarded as perhaps the greatest sportscar racer of all time but Collins was no slouch – and had partnered Moss to win the Targa in the Mercedes 300 SLR in 1955. On this occasion, Moss was out of luck, retiring the semi-works Aston with gearbox trouble while Collins went on to finish 4th, partnered by Phil Hill.

"If the world looked like this, and you wanted to buy a car that sticks out a little, you probably wouldn’t buy a Volkswagen Station Wagon," the 1969 ad says. "But in case you haven’t noticed, the world doesn’t look like [this]. So if you’ve wanted to buy a car that sticks out a little, you know just what to do."
