NORTH LIBERTY– It looks like something a few dozen clowns would tumble out of. It has more glitter than a Liberace performance. And, it will be a $500 boost to the North Liberty Food Pantry’s coffers when somebody buys it.
It is a 1979 VW Rabbit, known as the “Sparkle Car,” for sale at Sherm’s Auto in North Liberty. Owner Steve Sherman took the utilitarian economy car, which had been brush-painted a rather drab shade of brown, and transformed it into a one-of-a-kind unit its future owner will never lose in a parking lot.
