Norman Bates Drives a Manta Montage?

Looks unassuming enough

If you happen to have a Manta Montage kit car, but the lack of ventilation makes driving with the windows in place untenable, how would you keep the thieves out of it?
You might try installing an alarm, but those usually just piss off the neighbors.
Buckle up for safety, granny.

Or you might just leave the desiccated corpse of a loved one in the car to guard over it.

You don’t even have to leave the radio on for her, and when driving home, you can take the HOV lane.

      x2…..I don't know what scares me more, the car or the corpse.

    My guess – being forced to drive a Manta kit car is the curse of the mummy.

    I suspect this guy's been using the HOV lane. I don't think it says anywhere in the rules that all passengers have to be alive, does it?

    Norman, like many Californians, couldn't afford to live near his office in downtown LA. Instead, he had a killer apartment in Riverside with a parking garage. However, commuting on the 91 every day was murder, and he thought the SpeedPass lanes were a ripoff. When Norman's mom passed away, his plan to make his commute less smothering took shape…

    I may have to make it part of my will that a VW kit car is used as my hearse.

    That's a whole lotta beef jerky in the passenger seat.

      That's Zevulon the Great. He's teryaki-style.

      Ship it off to Deartháir, his sled-cats will need food once he gets north of 60.

    Mummy! Armed!
    Some say the Manta Montago is a death trap.
    This was the last person to call shotgun.

      Maybe it's the Accidental Mummy of Manta Montage?

    Gnarly. I'll bet freaks the shit out of whoever sees it in that parking garage. Put a family pack of pork chops under the car for olfactory realism.

    Stop hating on the Montage. My inner child is crying.

    This is why it's best to buy a car with a trunk.

    Looks like McCormick finally had enough of Hardcastle's bulls**t.

    The only thing this is missing is a string rigged to have George there flip the bird at people

    Nice yellow padded interior, too. In gray: is that a home-made, unrolled airbag?

      I think it's there to keep dead legs from falling into the floorboard and rolling under the seat. He's clearly already lost track of some of its limbs.

    Don't get excited. He's just molted hasn't had time to dispose of his husk.

    Well I'll be, I'd love to try to drive that thing but I fear I wouldn't fit in the door much less in the seat.
