If you're looking for a gift for that hard-to-shop-for car buff, or just want to treat yourself to a silly conversation starter for your office wall, the Petersen Automotive Museum may be able to help you out. Best part: it'll only run you ten bucks.
Send the museum that not-so-princely sum along with a photo that clearly shows your mug, and they'll happily insert the likeness onto a body seated behind the wheel of one of the cars in their collection. Once their expert Photoshoppers have put you in the ride of your dreams, they'll send you the finished product in print-quality digital format. That way you can set it as your desktop wallpaper or blow through a good portion of your inkjet cartridge printing it out onto photo paper.
The selection of cars is pretty extensive, and it includes Speed Racer's Mach 5, an Isetta, a '58 Dual Ghia, a '71 Pantera, the Shah of Iran's 1939 Bugatti Atlantic Type 57C, and several more. Cheesy? Sure, but if you've ever ponied up for the goofy fake photos at Six Flags or Disney World, you can't really complain here. In our opinion, it's probably better to have your face 'shopped onto the driver of a significant auto than, say, Conan the Barbarian's body. So, got $10 you want to part with? If so, click here.
