Back in 2005, the New York Times was all, "Hey George Barris, betcha can't do your kandy kustom spiel with a Toyota Prius." Barris was all, "Listen twerps, I did the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 while you were listening to Foreigner 4 and stuffing Funyuns in your pie holes. I accept your challenge." Of course it didn't start that way, but it did end up with a Barrisized Prius of the kandy kolored persuasion, at a mere $10,000 over sticker. OK, so it's no Drag-u-La.
