We love concept cars because the guard rails of convention sometimes get totally disregarded, as in the case of the 1996 Ford Indigo. The Indigo was a crazy-fast open-wheel race car with a giant bladed front end and a huge wing to create downforce, as well as huge swan doors to create drama. Only three were built, and only one of them had an engine, a monster 435-horsepower V12. The other two had no engines and were sold to private parties almost two decades ago. This one is up for sale in Detroit, and it’s only been put on display (it obviously can’t be driven… yet). It’s in pristine condition and can take on a new powertrain and drivetrain, and it also has the original tires and seatbelts. A creative owner can turn this thing into a track monster. We doubt there’s traction control, stability control, or ABS, so watch out.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
