And you thought Rodney Dangerfield’s golf bag in Caddyshack was awesome. Car guy and all-around maker Dave Phipps has built every teenagers dream car. Tricked-out muscle car? Check. Wireless remote controlled ignition, doors, windows, radio, drop top, and trunk? Check. RedEye iPod touch remote control interface? Check. Come on, don’t even tell me you never thought of doing this.

I make cool stuff and write about other people making cool stuff on makezine.com. If you have something you think I should see, send me a tip.

    Well I still don’t know what “RedEye” is; guess its off a googling I will go. It sounds like a WiFi to infrared adapter? Strange product if so.

    I particularly like the remote start for practical reasons and the engine revving up for awesomeness. I would like to see the mechanical interface to the throttle however.

    This is an awesome combination – IPad + American Muscle. I wish I had such a GTO. But one controlled via wireless, man this is what I call imagination. Thanks
