Let’s say you, and 40 of your friends- all rubber noses and big-floppy shoes – need to rock the red carpet so you can collect your award for best pie throwing in a drama, how would you arrive? A town car doesn’t seem appropriate- piling out like a coke dealer and his pale, mini-skirted entourage. No, you need something that makes a statement, something like a Fiat 500 limo with a full landau roof and faux spare bump on the engine lid.
Offered on eBay, and currently up to $3,250 in bidding, this ’67 Fiat has been stretched like a bum’s last 40. Despite the added length and weight, it still is sitting on four-lug rims and has the Fiat twin-lung out back- which probably pumped out a good 23-hp when it was new.
A Lincoln grill and free-standing lights deny the nose any dignity it once may have possessed, and the padded roof has the appearance of a desiccated manatee. But hey, with a little elbow grease, and a few spurts of paint from your gag lapel flower, you’ll be in clown-car heaven.
The big question is what kind of booze would a clown car owner keep in the bar? I’m thinking some kind of Quince Schnapps. Of course, dribble glasses would be a given.
As award season is just around the corner, you’ll need to stop clowning around and get to some serious bidding on this little limo. Even if you’re not a practitioner of the greatest art form known to man, there’s got to be other uses for so large a tiny car- perhaps you could become some kind of midget call-girl pimp with it?
Thanks to LTDScott for the tip.

It's not just that it's so poorly done, it's that there's so much of it that's been poorly done. My favorite part is, if you "complete the circle" suggested by the spare tire bump, well, I think the tire might actually be below ground level.Loading…
