And a trilobite. Huh. (Side note: I was fascinated by those when I was a kid.)
I have no idea. I shall await the reveal with due anticipation, however.

You may be thinking of "Evolvo," by pun- and fish-happy artist and favored collaborator of paleontologists Ray Troll.
Page 95 of Rapture of the Deep: The Art of Ray Troll (University of California Press, 2004):
"I pitched the idea of an "Evolvo" concept car to various institutions for many years; finally, in 1999, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science fulfilled my dream when they hosted my exhibit there. I acted as art director for Chuck Parson, a Denver-based artist, who tricked out the automobile with many of my icons. There was a talking-head video of me in the back explaining my work; in front, a lifelike sculpture of Charles Darwin sat at the wheel, while a lobe-finned fish (Eusthenopteron) occupied the passenger seat. The trilobite hood ornament was the sweetest touch. The current mayor of Denver, restauranteur/raconteur John Hickenlooper, is the proud owner of this art vehicle."
Hickenlooper is now in his second term as governor. I have no idea whether he still owns the car eleven or twelve years later, though I suppose that as a Democrat, accepting evolution is not as much of a political liability as it might be on the other side of the aisle, so maybe he does...
