Days of Future Past

Dean Ing, writer of numerous SF and thriller yarns as well as a bunch of prepper-oriented nonfiction, passed away last year.

His personal car, the Mayan Magnum, was absolutely the perfect ride for a sci-fi writer, and a reader writes to inform me that it's currently up for auction on Bring a Trailer. (Warning: BaT as a time-suck is second only to TV Tropes.)

With just under nine hours to go, it's still under eight grand.

It's Corvair-powered with a Porsche transaxle and a decidedly kit car interior, but you'd definitely be the only kid on your block with one.
