The Perfect Yellow Wedge

Before you start thinking that we've gone crazy, FPH still means Flappy Paddle Heads and is not a women's shoe store, or perverse innuendo, called Fabulous Pump House.  Like the shoes that high-maintenance women adore, this perfect yellow wedge is also Italian made, quite sexy and very expensive.  Of course, we're talking about the Lancia Stratos!

Yes, for sale on Ebay right now is a very nicely restored 1975 Lancia Stratos (not the one pictured above) in all its Big Bird yellow glory.  For those who actually have lives unlike us and don't know what a Lancia Stratos is, it is one of the most iconic designs in the motor world.  Penned by Bertone's Marcello Gandini, the beautiful wedge was only 43 inches tall, 146 inches long, and 69 inches wide.  It's mid-mounted 2.4 liter V6 made about 190hp which was applied to the rear wheels.  This formula was applied to just 492 examples of the car and was the basis for three World Rally Championships.  You can own the perfect yellow wedge below.
