Special Ideas
 
At its best New Wave/punk represents a fundamental and age-old Utopian dream: that if you give people the license to be as outrageous as they want in absolutely any fashion they can dream up, they'll be creative about it, and do something good besides.
-- Lester Bangs

 

It's not every day you can buy a car with 18" McCulla retractable pneumatic saw blades, a U.S. Navy PX18 periscope, an Airtronics remote control homing pigeon, and pneumatic auto jacks for jumping. Then again, there's only one Mach 5!

This outfit called The Child Safety Network commissioned some engineers to build Speed Racer's car, the Mach 5, and now they're auctioning it off on EBay.

The auction will be over in less than 19 hours, so if you've ever had a hankering for real speed, or a fantasy about having Trixie bent over the hood of the Mach 5, this is your chance to act.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
