Bored with modern cars that seem to all look the same, promising uniqueness but never delivering? How about a classic Corvette with a custom Sportwagon body to quench your thirst for standing out in a crowd.

A closer analysis reveals that the creation doesn’t look all that good, but for those who asked the magic goldfish to offer them a life-sized Hot Wheels car, their wish might have come true. The car takes the worst parts of a vintage look and modern components and creates an unpalatable salad of chrome, fruity paint job, and garden shed engineering.

Also, the interior is a bit of a disaster, looking like an imitation of a modern supercar’s seats with grandmother’s sewing. We do however like the bench that was put in place in the back, it looks perfect for romancing girls under the moonlight while listening to Barry White music.

In fact, this would be an ideal car for a retired porn star like Ron Jeremy, since it has a huge bow tie tail lam arrangement on the back in the form of a Chevrolet badge, some tattooing on the side and a shape that looks like... it is happy to see you.

The eBay auction has just a few hours left to go, so you’d better hurry if you want to buy this one-off. Expect however to pay over $30,000 (EUR21,000) which is where the current bidding stands. The seller will provide extensive documentation about the building process, which is 90 to 95 percent done in his opinion. The 327 cu.in. (5.3-liter) motor has reportedly only done 2,000 miles (3,200 km).
