Who wouldn’t want to go on a date in this amazing custom car!

 

This Flintstone car is online for sale. It is a 4 cylinder 1.6 gas engine. It looks just like the car that Fred used to take the family to the movies on Saturday night.

Good thing you don’t have to use  your feet to power this old fashioned car. At first glance the wheels look as if they won’t make those turns, but once you look closer that you see that real tires are used.

The InAutoNews mention that the car is for sale. That the stone age look alike has 80k on the engine. It was created in 2011.

The price is $2200.00 and quite a deal for a local driving and will definitely get you some attention when you do a grocery run.

Learn Something Fun: The characters of The Flintstones were greatly influenced by the 1954-56 hit TV series The Honeymooners, starring Jackie Gleason and Art Carney as working class neighbors. Blowhard Fred Flintstone was very like Gleason’s character Ralph Kramden, goofy sidekick Barney Rubble resembled Carney’s character Ed Norton, and their wives Wilma and Betty had the practical personalities of the wives in The Honeymooners. Jackie Gleason considered suing Hanna-Barbera, but did not want to go down in history as “the guy who yanked Fred Flintstone off the air”.

You might not have to use your feet to power it, but you still have to use your feet as brakes.
