The Perfect Name To Give To Your Car After You Lose Your Mind And Chop It In Half: COTD

This week, a reader sent us a 2011 Ford Fiesta that’s had three feet removed and I’m not sure I’ve ever wanted an economy car more than this shrunken Ford. Thankfully, its salvage title means I can’t legally drive it in my state. Whew!

We still don’t have the full story of why the car was made. I mean, yes, the official explanation is that the builder–who allegedly owned a body shop–chopped the Fiesta in half to tow behind his motorhome. But why chop a Fiesta into a fraction of itself to make a 10-foot car when an 8.8-foot Smart Fortwo can be towed behind a camper without modification? Well, I thought about the circumstances a little more. This car had a salvage title, deployed airbags, and thus was probably purchased in an insurance auction for chump change. Even the cheapest Smarts back in 2011 were still at least $10,000. And if the builder owned a body shop, transforming the Fiesta was probably fun!

Anyway, that Fiesta is not quite fully finished. It needs a final touch, one suggested by today’s COTD winner and contributor Mark Tucker:

It’s the Ford F’ta!

Yep, that’s it right there.

For a second nomination today, we have sarcastx, who commented on Jason’s explanation about why your car’s oil pressure warning light looks the way it does:

MISTER OILADDIN SIR WHAT WILL YOUR PRESSURE BE?

Great, now every time I look at that symbol, “Oiladdin” is going to pop up in my head. Ugh, thank you! Have a great evening, everyone!

Clearly, the customizer has created a Semi.

Mister Oiladdin Sir, what will your pressure be?
Will you fill my bearings, switch my VTEC
Do you have enough lubricity?
Life blood in the engine sump, pumped up to the cam shafts
sprayed on the bores to wet them down
your engine really needs me!

Oh yeah, the Electrameccanica Solo prototype! They had to recall all of them due to some of them acting like… a Ford, and they can’t figure out how to fix it, also like Ford LOL
