Helge Meyer and the Ghost Camaro — Badass of the Week
He's not only a badass, but a true hero!
He bolted enough reinforced armor plating to his badass American muscle car that it looked like a Post-Apocalyptic Mad Max / Knight Rider fanfic crossover and then hauled ass through the landmine-riddled streets of downtown Sarajevo at 90 miles an hour delivering food to starving children while bandits and guerillas pinged AK rounds off his rear window and tried to blow his ass up with RPGs. And he did it without the explicit approval of any government agency, military, or NGO, and without ever carrying a weapon larger than a pocketknife and his own radioactive ballsack.
