YAK Car Pic of the Day

I’m sure many of you remember the old Get Smart television series. And if you’re even reading this you’re probably also remembering Max’s red Sunbeam Tiger convertible (pictured here). But during seasons three and four, he traded the Tiger for a VW Karmann Ghia (as VW became one of the show’s sponsors). Must have been quite a letdown. “Would you believe, zero-to-60 in two days?” Season five saw Buick climb aboard the sponsorship wagon, so out went the VW and in came a sleek Opel GT. I wonder what he’d be driving today? Mazda Miata? Maybe something compatible with his shoe phone?
