That roadster cabrio is out of site...
Looks like it has one tailight, of the other is blocked by the plate, also dig the hitch over the bumper, and is that a NY plate? Imagine that trip across the country.

I know, right? That might be my favorite view ever of that car... I got to sit in it last year and it changed my life. Might be my favorite hot rod ever built.

It was tight... but not to the point of undriveable... Kind of like a shoe that was a half sized too small, but really cool so you wore it anyway... And I'm 6'3" and 210 lbs.
