1971 - Avengers #85 - Bug Bombastic

Man, what the hell was up in the early 70's? Apparently after the 60's ended with moon landings and music festivals, the country converted their brand new outlook by consuming airplane and weirdo automobile model kits and toys.

And really, I can't think of anything weirder than this "Bug Bomb" novelty model car kit, which takes the already bulbous proportions of a VW Beetle and squishes it even more. All courtesy of cartoonist and car designer Dave Deal, who, apparently, had no qualms about bringing out the worst of both worlds to life.

I kid, I kid, it's not hideous for what it is. But in the grand scheme of things, what a creepy fucking that is.

Appeared in Avengers #85, February 1971 (where Spider-Man appeared briefly in a cameo, apparently).
