    Anything jet-powered is waaaay cool.

    Jay Leno has a jet-powered motorcycle:

    Apparently there're no laws about Jet powered vehicles, it's a loophole because there are too very few jet powered toys on the road to pass a regulatory law.

    Cool idea on a pig-ugly car.
    VW's New Beetle looks like if you turn it over it'll have Fisher Price moulded on the underside.
