What 1960s custom car would you daily drive?

During the 1960s, the advent of fiberglass led to a boom in radical custom cars. You know the names: George Barris, Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, Gene Winfield, Darryl Starbird, et al. But what 1960s custom car would you daily drive?

Seriously. Which one — of the multitude of customs from that era — would you drive daily? As you reruns-watchers will no doubt recall, Herman Munster drove his Barris-designed Munsters' Koach to his job at the "parlor" every day. Then again, he was a fictional character, while you have traffic and parking and askance-looking significant others to deal with. But why would any of that stop you?
