I hated that T.V. show. I was a comic book freak as a kid, got all my comics for free after they were disposed of. I read thousands of them. What they show did to the comic book was disgraceful to a young kid, probably 13 at the time. If I had an extra 5 mil laying around I would buy the car and let Big Foot crush it, charging $100 bucks a head to recoup some of my money.....

Whoa there Danny, holy cow you need to release some of the anger, go give Barris a big hug and let it go.

I loved the tv show and had never read a comic in my life. Isn't it funny how different things can be. That car was the coolest. What is most funny about the car is Barris really didn't even design it, Ford styling studio did and all Barris did was put some cartoon BS on it.

Yep, George is no Sam, that's for sure.
