Build Your Own Car and Save

Mitsuoka Motors of Japan hopes you don't mind putting in a little bit of elbow grease when you buy one of their cars, as you're gonna have to go ahead and build it yourself. Their mini-cars are about eight feet long and have a top speed of 31 mph, making them more like go-karts than real cars, but they still look like they'd be a lot of fun to drive around in. Not that I'd actually put in the 40 hours of required labor to build one or trust the reliability of my handiwork once I was finished, but it's a neat idea at least.
