That looks like Shatner's Corvette to the left behind Nimoy.

For comparison ...

The usual place, suspended from the rafters.

I like Shatner's Vette better. But that bottom image of Nimoy dressed a Spock kneeling in front of his car is begging for a caption.

Logic dictates that four lights will illuminate better than two. And Jim, where will Dr. McCoy fit in your vehicle?

Had some Photoshop fun when the Nimoy pic came up in a caption contest a few years back.

Re: Mr. Spock's Flivver

Mr. Nimoy is a sensible family man and thus has a sensible family man's flivver.

Mr. Shatner, although also a family man, clearly was not sensible.

Perhaps this is why Mr. Shatner was divorced a few years later and taken to the cleaners by his sensible wife, thus losing his not-sensible flivver and almost everything else he owned.

The moral of this story: If you are a family man, own a sensible family man's flivver.

Shatner's wife was sensible and then she was dollarsible.

A flivver (pronounced flivver) according to wikipedia is an "American slang term used during the early part of the 20th century to refer to any small car that gave a rough ride, esp. one that is small, inexpensive, and old."
