OK............this thing is sooooo bizarre, I had to zero in and find out what on earth is this supposed to be! I think I got the answer and judging by its looks, it's no wonder I've never seen these in abundance! 🤢

This car was designed by Alvin "Spike" Rhiando, a canadian ex 500 cc formula 3 racer, who had clearly no clue about designing a car. The Irish T-Bird as it was called is a mixture of a 1957 Ford Thunderbird and a StudebakerHawk from the rear. It was the first Irish car and specially for the US market. It seems that it is one of the rarest cars ever. The 1959/60 Shamrock was a car that nobody wants. Only 8 - 10 cars were build. From 8 exisiting cars ar 5 in Ireland and 3 in the USA. After the production had stop all tools and remaining parts were sunk in Lough Muckno, Ireland

It was chronically underpowered too - had a 1.5 litre (90 cubic inch) Austin engine. Although not even a Hemi could have redeemed the poor thing.
