Never seen one in person before, probably never will. First time I heard of them was playing Grid.

I think it's unique but not necessarily good looking, especially with that red interior

Every time I see the inside of one of those I want to order a hamburger and a malt shake for some reason.

Got a dealer just a few miles from my house. Caught this one on a truck a couple of years back.







Not bad for driving 75 MPH down the highway and taking pictures.

Personally, I don't think they're great looking cars. I do like how they look completely unique though. And from what I've read, they're built with a pride, expertise and quality that's rare in the automotive world. I'd love to have one.
