    A friend inquired if I knew of either a paper or plastic model of Stan Mott's Cyclops II, which often appeared in "Road & Track" magazine. I've never even heard of the original car, let alone a model, so I did a quick web search:

    While this was only a fictional cartoon automobile (the world's cheapest car -- $14.62 manufacturer's suggested retail price), there's actually plans for a "real" version:

    I can see why my friend thought there might be a paper model of this car -- though a paper replica could be more durable than the old Cinzano signs that form the Cyclops II's semi-circular body!

    This isn't a formal request, but I thought the Cyclops II would be a fun subject. Enjoy the links!
