One of them jet-powered bugs.

Ron Patrick spent four years and $250,000 to install a Navy-surplus General Electric T58-8F jet engine in the back of his VW Bug. It's street legal -- so long as he doesn't turn the engine on. Watch this if you want to see the afterburner in action (the video drags a bit at the outset, and then kicks in). Patrick's future projects include a Honda scooter powered by cruise-missile motors, and a SAM-2 missile installation in his front yard.
