The World’s Most Flamboyant Car

If you're as old as me you might remember the Panthermobile from the Pink Panther cartoon opening and closing sequence. It was designed by the legendary Jay Ohrberg who was also responsible for the Back To The Future DeLorean, the 1966 and 1989 Batmobiles and David Hasselhoff’s vehicle in Knight Rider. It cost $500,000 to make in 1969.

Now it is ready to roll again. Los Angeles-based Galpin Auto Sports purchased the Panthermobile at auction five years ago and has since been working to get it back on the road.

It's a little too flashy for my taste but if someone wanted to take me for a spin in it I wouldn't turn down the offer.
