In the parking lot at Wheels Through Time we saw this rig. Us youngins(31) took way to long to figure out what was up. The tube coming out the front had us thinking Vac-Truck but the 6V71 and giant radiator didn't make sense. 

Mobile AC would have jumped right out if we had read the control panel

I believe that this car is a Unicorn. Not too many running around here. It is at a custom body shop just parked there. Have not seen it parked there in the past. So maybe it is being restored?

not everything is a unicorn but I think this qualifies.

Sadly, now a bit of unicorn: 1989-'91 Civic Si on a car carrier.

Spoke with owner who appeared to be in his 60s. His answers to my questions:

Inherited from my dad; he didn't drive much

28 k miles (gasp!)

Not for sale; don't need the $ and wouldn't sell this if I did

Sadly, not my photo. Shamelessly repeated from Facebook.

It actually looks like a pretty good job - the headlights will even still work. Well, it looks good at first. Look at the seams! Is that cardboard?

Is it still a unicorn if it's a very common car but now has cardboard glued on it? Maybe the owner is a unicorn?

No pic, but I saw an early 70's 911 the other day.  Super clean in that pretty dark blue.

Why so unusual?  That morning it was snowing hard and the roads were icy!

My wife sent me this picture she saw on the book of faces. Now I'm curious.

One of these days I will hook an old hard drive to my computer and have old pictures. One would be of my 1991 Integra LS, suspension, tires and EBC brakes. Got a great (then) video of the first time the pads got warm on a track. May have flat spotted  some Azenis 615s.

No pics, but a new one on me a couple of days ago.

We were driving home from the tree farm and there was something striking a ways back in the rearview. I thought it was a Lucid, but it turned off and I wasn't sure they were on the roads yet.

Then an hour later I wound up next to one driving the other way.

Saw one last week on my lunch break, took me a few seconds to realize what it was.  They look much nicer in person, no pics for me either.
