I borrowed a pic from the ebay ad...........
The only part I recognized was the 46-48 Dodge grille.
too much round vs. square lines... look at the retangular skirts.....sorry, without a doubt, butt ugly!
As fugly as the Murotta [sic] Merc...
Looks like a bad photoshop with a Monte Carlo front end. Super Fugly!
When I first saw the photo, I thought it was Caddy based. The engine looks good, less the new radiator hoses. I wonder why it didn't sell at a big auction? Unrestored, slightly worn underneath? Perhaps it looks better in person? Gary
Its odd, I wont deny that, but I am a big fan of Bob Hope and the people he touched. I think its a cool car.
looks like someone stepped on it.
i like it .. although that rear end photo reminds of a 53'vette humping an up-turned boat....
i agree with some others in this post that for its time it is brilliant.... i wouldnt keep it though.. except the motor .. id like that part - alot!!
If that car was a person they woulda live in 1987 with braces and head gears.
It's neat. Still an old custom.
Did you guys read the ebay auction? It says the car is "Induction Type - Carbureted - Naturally Asspurated"
I agree it definitely looks asspurated to me too........
That thing is hideous.
Ugly could be an understatement. $200K plus? Wouldn't even if I could and it didn't matter.
finially something with a nose longer than Bob Hopes.................
If I had a dog that looked like that, I'd shave it's ass and make it walk backwards.
Regardless of it's unique look (to be polite), if it doesn't end up in a private collection of a golfer or entertainer, more than likely it will end up in one of those tacky "auto" museums next to some other Hollywood movie, TV or "Liberace" style celebrity cars.
On the positive side, it could very well end up at the Smithsonain (if donated) in a motion picture diorama or even a USO display. The man's life and accomplishments were bigger than his poor sense of style or gaudy toys. Gary
well I like it.....however did anyone notice the SPEEDWAY heads on the flatty.........
it's not that bad, i've seen worse.
Bob Hope probably did more for our American Servicemen than our Government ever will and your grammer sucks.
I am so glad this came up on here. I was going to buy it for my daughter as a birthday gift, but all the negative comments changed my mind. Thanks troops. ~sololobo~
It's a poor design. "Produced by Lloyd Templeton with the help of his sons" How old were they I wonder?
