To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Mazda Roadster, famed Miata tuner shop Murakami Motors produced these cute roadster 'ghosts.' Not only are their cute faces cute, but they are meant to bring good luck and good weather

"A teru teru bōzu (Japanese: てるてる坊主 or 照る照る坊主, literally "shine shine monk") is a small traditional handmade doll that originated from the Edo period in Japan, made from white paper or cloth, that Japanese farmers began hanging outside of their window by a string. This talisman is supposed to have magical powers to bring good weather and to stop or prevent a rainy day. If someone is hoping for a rainy day, the teru teru bōzu can be hung upside down. Teru is a Japanese verb that describes sunshine, and a bōzu is a Buddhist monk (compare the word bonze), or in modern slang, "bald-headed"; bōzu is also used as a term of endearment for addressing little boys."
