It requires no key. You just flash one of your gold chains to start it.

It has what looks like a newer Lincoln grille and a Mark 4(?) body with customizing. So my guess is a Lincoln custom by some shop or factory backed place. The red color is nice but I don't like the whole car. Looked again and it might be a Buick. Just seen a grille like that on a Buick in my area. Could be a custom produced in limited numbers. Wait a minute, this could be a GM Monte Carlo with a Buick grille and extended front clip. Heck I don't know. I do know it is a mid size car with an extended front clip and a custom paint job. Custom Olds Cutlass? No, it's a Lincoln. I do know it isn't a red Camaro. I'm so confused. Patrick M

I think it's pretty cool looking (I didn't say it's pretty :()...especially considering the source...and that's all I'll say B)

I've even contemplated making a model of it :o

Haha, I had the same feeling... I spent maybe half an hour in google searching pictures, and found nothing. It has the look from many other cars, so it's very tricky to try guessing it right when I have no idea, what I'm looking for. But I'm very interesed about, what it really is, and HOW MANY REALLY GOT IT RIGHT? :D Well, must try again next time this one is too hard for me. I was thinking almost every American car make, like Lincoln, Cryshler etc. But didn't realize, what it is really.

All I'll say before Harry lets the cat out of the bag is, you'll be AMAZED at what this car is and its origins. :D

Considering what Zimmer usually makes, it's amazingly restrained, almost...tasteful, I like the front/middle/sides but not the tail end.

Yeah, hard to believe the same people that made this one also made those "Liberace-mobiles!" ;)

Huh, never heard of that before... It wasn't Cryshler or Lincoln, or any other "normal" manufacturer's car. I thought, it was some kind of prototype, or retro car. Well, better luck next time! I'm suprised, how many people really got it right...

It's only a bonnet in the UK... ;)

On our side of the pond it's the hood, whether there's an engine or a spare tire under it!
