This Arcade Car Can be Driven on Real Roads if you Have a Quarter

Remember those virtual arcade cars and motorcycle racing games? If you do, you probably recall begging your parents for some extra quarters so you could play them and test out your driving skills. The guys at 'Tofu Drift Van' used those recollections as inspiration for their latest car module.

The auto detailing company took an old Mazda Miata and added some arcade nostalgia to it. They modified the Mazda car to only start after a quarter has been inserted into the arcade-style slot they installed in the dashboard. This fun concept actually adds an extra security measure on your car -- that is, if the robber doesn't carry quarters. The slot feature also could help you save up some extra gas money.
