    Nothing nice to say, except that this would make a good doghouse.

    What would be the proper past tense of "breaking bad"? Broken Bad maybe, which this thing certainly is? If it fits……

    This just may be the famous 'Lobotomobile:' "Following his development of the icepick lobotomy, Freeman began traveling across the country visiting mental institutions in his personal van, which he called the "lobotomobile."[10]

      Oh my gawd….. I REALLY wish I had not read that Wiki article. I thought you were joking!

      I wonder if LBTOMBL or some similar permutation is available as a California personalized plate.

      The fan site says the Clark versions were powered by a Dodge slant-six driving some flavor of manual FWD transaxle, later ownership of the company produced a model with a Toronado powertrain.

      There's a part of me thinking that there's a rolled TDI V10 Touareg out there somewhere that needs to be introduced to this chassis. I'd love to have the kind of time and money to deal with that, but if I did I might think I'm better off spending that cash on a Cessna 210…

    We're used to wondering what that bottom looks like, this is one where a bird's eye view of the 'needs some roof work' would be really handy.

    It must be bad… no pics of the guts of this thing make me think it's just a shell. But oh the possibilities.. I do like the toureg idea though.

      I was at a stoplight today next to a Porsche Cayenne.

      I glanced to my left and noticed a script badge on the fender.

      'Diesel'.

      Oh Good Lord.

      As far as I'm concerned, the only diesel Pooch is the VW TDI-powered 911 that runs Lemons.

      Yep, Porsche Diesel Trucks. Clearly profit is the only goal. I guess the end is indeed nigh….

    Scary looking. As these are all steel, the rust worm issues scare me since there are not replacement panels available. The fiberglassing of large roof sections and the leading edge as well as the rain gutters on the sides are downright terrifying!

    OMG that is a terrible rabbit hole…I never knew about Rosemary Kennedy. Feeling a little ill.

    You could start a museum of horrible vans…this one, Kevorkians', Buffalo Bill's. etc.
