Default Zora himself in your garage or den. Staring at you.

This ad in Vintage Motorsports magazine is for a life-size Zora mannequin that you can have sitting idly by or standing around staring at you as you change plugs or catch a game on TV. It seriously creeps me out, since my at-times overactive mind might imagine it slightly shaking its head as I incorrectly adjusted something on my 67. Or smiling slightly as I did something right. For $675 it should move and speak. Or at least hold your beer while you're bumbling under the hood. Christmas is coming, and the subscriber pool for Vintage Motorsports mag is small, so I thought I'd spread the word to an eager and willing fan base.

I wonder if it would sit in the passenger seat.

Good grief, another absolutely terrific idea I hadn't considered ----- arriving at Carlisle with Zora in the passenger seat. Top down would be an absolute must. You'd be the envy of every eye; okay, maybe not the "envy," but you would certainly start a thousand murmured conversations.

Might as well put a Real Doll on his lap.

Not that I know what one of those are...

Only if it's a nice, hand rolled Dominican cigar.

Most people that know me wouldnt be the least bit surprised if I rolled into Carlisle with a life sized dummy 😁

Yeah, the one in the car looks like the actual Zora, embalmed. Even scarier when you put it that way.
