After the first glass [of absinthe] you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally you see things as they really are, and that is the most horrible thing in the world. -- Oscar Wilde
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.
