After reading Oppositelock's thread on the Cyclone manta, I was reminded of the Opel GT hybrid I snapped at a show outside of Vancouver. Something called a "Kanzler", it is the hybrid of a GT and a Cadillac that I believe was an honest attempt at a commercial venture with several being built. This one had plates from Washington State. Enjoy! I hope these pic show up in the post. If not, I'll put them in my album.

Kanzler

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder . . . designer? If that's the case, this guy was operating in the dark . . . as in, not a clue . . . head up his "you-know-what". As they also say, there's one born every minute. M2¢W :D
