These Amazing Thai Knockoff Supercars Might Be The Greatest Car-Art…

Our recent stories on those shady scam replica-car builders reminded me of something I've been meaning to write about for a long time: an amazing project from artist Tobias Rehberger that's all about making replicas of cars.

Mister Carscoop and Los Jalopniks were like ships passing in the Frankfurt fog. While we never did affect an intercontinental pow-wow, we did get this bit from his site. It's a Toyota 2000GT. No, it's a Mazda Miata wearing a 2000GT getup. With Halloween approaching fast, we're betting this kit from Japan's Hiroshi… » 9/18/07 5:15pm 9/18/07 5:15pm
