This automobile is always facing forward.

Trains usually have engines at each end, so that they can make return journeys without turning around. But cars?

This "Ford Custom Clown Car" has just that capability, which means that it can be driven either way. We're not sure if this is safe, or useful, or even street legal.

What we do know is that it's for sale, for the low price of $2,500. Who wants to take it for a spin and demonstrate this vehicle's potential?
