The Phone Car by Howard Davis, Photo by Harrod Blank

This 1975 VW Beetle started out as part of a marketing campaign: Owner Howard Davis was looking for a way to promote his telephone company, Datel Communications. He took the chassis of the Beetle, removed the body and had a replica of a 1970s desktop-style phone welded on — a process that took almost a year to complete. The car's license plate reads "Phones," and its horn blast sounds like a ringing telephone. Davis, who repairs phones for a living, adopted the alter ego "Teleman" and can be seen driving the streets of Boston in a superhero costume, coming to the rescue of needy customers.
