LAAS 2012: The coolest car at the show is an old one

Jeff Glucker November 29, 2012 Car Shows, LA Auto Show

It manages to pack so much awesome into such a little space. I’m talking about the BRE Datsun roadster sitting just outside the entrance to Kentia Halls land of misfit automobiles. This particular racing runabout was campaigned by Frank Monise, and now occupies the heart and garage of Adam Carolla.

Click past the break for a few more photos of this excellent machine.

    It looks like a go cart compared to the Mustang next to it.

    Not everyone's a fan, but I listen to Quarolla's (spelled it wrong, just for him) podcasts regularly and he loves this little car. I do like his vehicular taste.

    Humina Humina…

    When has that not been true?

  8. Joe Dunlap says:

    I call shenanigans! The badge says 2000 on the rear and the engine should be a 2.0 SOHC. The engine in this is a 1.6 pushrod.
