Rocket car spotted on the streets of LA

Dwiff sez, "Custom rocket car surfaces in Los Angeles neighborhood Silver Lake, looking like something straight out of Penelope Pitstop." Link (Thanks, Dwiff!)


  1. “Penelope Pitstop” Ha! And I thought I was the only one who remembered that old show! (Though, it is rerun on Boomerang these days, so…) Anyway, cool car. Iz Wantz!!!

  2. Doesn’t look like it’d be particularly safe for any pedestrians it hit though: instant kebabs

  3. Not only a little dangerous for pedestrians…check out the photo of the cockpit. There isn’t a padded surface in sight. But it’s and undeniably cool machine.

  4. Was it parked in front of a gold house? Maybe the creator of Itchy & Scratchy got his dream!

  5. where’s Dick Dastardly and Muttley then? and surely this creation has to have fenders to be street legal?

  6. Longboxes 1: In this age of Google, I suppose no one will believe that I actually REMEMBER that it was called “The Perils of Penelope Pitstop” and was a spinoff of an earlier show called “The Wacky Races,” but I do.
