I want the Rocket Car


This rocket car was spotted in LA and as you can see, it a hybrid of early Flash Gordan and carnival ride, that I must own someday. I do not know much about the car. It seems to be an art piece, so I doubt it actually run. Even if it does I cannot see how it would be street legal. Still, when I close my eyes, I see myself whooshing across the desert at ludicrous speed, cacti shedding their needles in my wind sheer and cops hidden behind billboards double checking their radar guns as I rumble past them.

    That’s a very cool ride! Where in LA was it spotted? No intake for cooling air. Could be configured for an electric drive train ;)
