The car itself was featured in a TV pilot about Barris’ car, which included actor Joe Montagna, and was later used in a photoshoot with a member of the music group The Black Eyed Peace, so it claims something of fame. Going for it

The list goes on to say that this car is for outsiders – which makes perfect sense. It even announces that “Look at our other vehicles wherever you go, especially if you don’t want to be the center of attention at car shows and cruise nights.”
