One of my earliest childhood car memories was riding my bike somewhere in Unionville, and seeing a guy sitting in one of these in his driveway. I circled around a bit and he waved me over. He let me sit in the driver's seat and play around with the controls. Then he started it up and revved it a bit.
It had a really unique texture to the seats and when I asked him about it he said they were eel skin and you had to be careful because they would zap your credit cards.
To this day I totally want to believe that was true.
