Your E-Fly Is Open: 1991 Sebring Auto-Cycle Zzipper

What am I looking at? Which way does this car drive? What is an electric zzipper, and could it cause extreme blood loss in the event of a minor accident? How many truck bed covers were sacrificed for their windows to make this thing? Would this be an example of a car that I could drive to one-up Jay Leno at the next Cars, Coffee and Bourgeoisie event in the hills above LA? Find this 1991 Sebring Auto-Cycle Zzipper offered for $5,000 in San Pedro, CA via ffacebank mmarketplaza.
