If this is stuff is "ON" while driving, it is a hazard to everyone else -- some states even give tickets for just texting.
If this stuff is "ON" while parked, engine exhaust is a hazard to the ham.
It would be hazardous if an air bag deployed -- if it has one.
Clearly this is an attempt at Ripley's.

Nobody would pay $500 for the car -- too many holes all over.

This guy takes his stuff to hamfest with no setup or takedown
