    This bit of weirdness popped up on ebay about a week or so ago. While it's not exactly a hot rod it seems to be some sort of 50s-60s homebuilt special.

    The VIN # "103G" makes it a 50s Fiat 1100 and according to the questions asked it has a Nash Metropolitan windsheild. The wheel scallops are sorta 58 Vette inspired I guess. Not exactly the best style in the world but it's got some interesting points to it and I could see it in Popular Mechanics of the time.

    Anyhow, given the HAMBs ability to come up with "Oh, that was my neighbor's car" I thought I'd ask here.

    No it doesn't, it says "1952". And you'll get no arguement from me that its ugly as shit, I just wanted to know if anything knew anything about it.
