2001mar30. Indian Bharatiya 707 Car.
This sweet, sweet chariot has been constructed out of discarded metal cans and tins by molding them into a pleasing car-like shape. The wheels are also fabricated in this fashion (they do look strikingly like bottle caps, though).
The vehicle is labelled "Not a Toy!" and "For Collectors Only" (I think it's a more succinct phrase than "usually kids don't play with things that have horrifically sharp edges") and was made in India, then sold in America for the staggering sum of $1.95.
Because it's all chopped up, you can only read part of the product's spiel.
Wouldn't it be a corker if these things were created by child labor? See, 'cause I'm an adult, and ... the kid, see, built this and ... globalization ... anyway.
I bought three of 'em. Here's the best one from the bunch.

I love these things. They look like art cars.
Here's the box the car came in.
Those ... eyes ... must ... look away ... What's that, Sanjit? You have ... a special message for us???
