    It's worth finding the full version; especially when he wires all the trunk batteries up in a short circuit and vaporizes the cable... there's a lot of energy in there!

    I bet Mr. Gadget would prefer we didn't remember him for that little mistake!

    It is fun to watch them convert a tired old (but classic) "beater" car into something that looks nearly showroom new and nice.

    Anyone know who's taking the credit for building the car? Seems like both Gadget and Evan are claiming it.

    From the Hippy Motors website.

    ...and speaking of Hippy Motors.... this is the coolest car they've done. Perhaps they coolest car ever. There was one parked outside a garage for a month or so last summer with original paint that still looked pretty good. I drooled every night as I drove by.
