Spotted this on a custom car in Hall 7 at the NEC Classic over the weekend. It was called the orgasmatron or something :lol:

I saw the orgasmatron (or whatever it's called) and although it's obviously an aquired taste the quality of workmanship was outstanding, especially the interior:

The owner/creator claimed to have made the whole thing himself which I think is quite impressive (even though the front is very ugly)...

I spoke to the builder; briefly. This thing was located in the hall reserved for "sad acts". Which was appropriate.

I bet if you asked the builder who his influences for the car were.........if he didn't mention Big Daddy Roth and George Barris
just to name a couple, I would be surprised. Growing up in SoCal during the sixties these types of cars were seen at car shows as the norm.
I guess that is why I like sport cars and not customs. It wasn't unusual for quarter milers to have the small tank in front of the radiator on extended frame arms with............you got it........a spinner cap.

Looks like a Hot Rod show to me.

Like Shelby......I call em' sport cars.........he knew more about them.............I'll follow his lead.
