A real car had to be pretty much destroyed to make it happen, but the awesome guys at Porcubimmer Motors recreated “The Homer,” the awful car Homer Simpson designed for his estranged brother Herb’s company (and which bankrupted him) on The Simpsons, in real life.
It has all the features offered by the fictional “Homer”: isolated bubble in the back for the kids, gigantic cupholders, bowling trophy hood ornament, chrome horn that plays “La Cucaracha,” oversized rear fins and, of course, puke green paint job.
So, to quote The Simpsons, “what does this monstrosity cost?” On the show, the sticker price was $82,000.
It turns out this one isn’t for sale — yet, at least. For now, its owners plan to race it. Next up is the 24-hour LeMons race on June 29 in Buttonwillow, Calif.
The Homer has its own Facebook page, where you can see close-up photos of it in all its glory. Here are a few of the best ones:
