Made this last weekend for the Grand National Roadster Show as a trophy. It will be in the Suede Palace to be given out for my car club favorite pick.

That gold metal flake is the coolest!
It would also be sweet if you had a small motion detector mounted on this guy so that when someone walked close, a small loop tape - sound bite of the Jetson's car/spacecraft thingy speeding away played.

Borris and Dave, you guys bring your YARIS' over and I'll do some shakey striping on 'em.
It's a hubcap, aircleaner top, model A and T bits and other crap.
You gotta love METALFLAKE!
Ha thanks guys, it was fun to make.

Crazy about this trophy, TD. An instant classic that captures the cool vibe I remember from the full-on tiki culture of my SoCal kidhood, and surely an honor to whomever it may be bestowed upon. Nice job.

Do you guys love your Yaris as much as I love mine? I have the two door hatch 'cause it was TOO CUTE! I had to just go with whatever color rolled off the truck, (white), because there was a waiting list. Are you really getting the 40 mpg? I'm getting close to that down here in GA.
