But when it is translated into English, does it say "UGLY" ? I have no clue but I can spot ugly without my glasses on!

The car in the picture is either a 1957 or 1958 Tatra 603-1. It depends on which website you want to believe. But either way, it's definitely a Series 1 car... the Series 2 had more "normal" quad headlights. Only the Series 1 cars (1957-62) had the weird 3-headlights-in-the-middle setup.

I'm sure I'm in the minority, but I always liked these. If the styling wasn't like anything else on the road, the mechanical specifications may even out-strange the looks. If there was a kit of this one, I'd buy more than one.

Which would likely be the only ones ever sold...

Mark,I totally agree with you,I have alway liked these Lil' Doobers too.....but then again this is someone who owned "Dubbies" and now owns a Corvair....something to be said about those "Air Suckers"

Of course we like! That Tatra would be very interesting to get in 1:25 scale... I have never seen even resin kits of it...
