Saw these two on the 405 freeway in West Los Angeles last week. Sadly the flat bead carrying them belongs to a do it yourself junkyard. So instead of the start to some oddball GM rear engined 24 Hours of Lemons racecar, its the end of the line for them.

My friend Jim Spotted this up in the Great White North. Seeing as its a Ford Ranger it most likely has a little 2.3 liter motor in it, so I think those dual stacks are a bit of overkill.

My wife thought this was hilarious, but you and I and the folks in Japan know this is a period correct 80’s Toyota Starlet road race car.
So you’re looking at this thinking, that’s not a very good homemade flame job, and then you scroll down, and its a Honda minivan!
