So the dude who sold me the car has a collection of them and he’s going to give me a door and a headlight. And the chrome spinners... I’m going to take a Sawsall and a Wheel of Death and cut away enough shrapnel to get a headlight to stay in place. I’m going to register the car and drive a bomber until I can find a buyer. Good news: 42,xxx miles on the chassis (which is why I bought it), complete including A/C, and only $1,300 tied up in it.


I think I will look heroic in this car. Maybe I’ll paint shark’s teeth around the opening where the grill was. Perhaps I’ll build a wooden bench for the back where the backseat is missing.

My punishment for this impulse buy is that I have to drive this hilarious bomber around until I can find another buyer.
