We’re going retro for this week’s cool toy. This is not something you can run out and buy, but it is relevant. Our cool toy this week is Bill Cushenberg’s SILHOUETTE, one of the neat-looking cars from the 1960s heyday of custom car design. I wrote about The Batmobile from this era, here. The reason I picked the Silhouette is because, aside from having been made into Hot Wheels and Model kits in years past, it was also the inspiration for the car in “Ribbon Driving,” the animated short by my brother Frank, which appears in the latest episode of Radio Free Charleston. See, it’s all synergistic and stuff.
