Safari Carpool: 2004 Toyota Sienna
Welcome to another DT Loony Labor Day. Most websites celebrate Labor Day with a 10% off coupon or some sale, but here at DT we celebrate the co-option of a worker’s protest movement (formerly known as May Day) and today known as Labor Day by sharing strange stuff. Instead of getting our sabots stuck in the gears of capitalism, we find the craziest, wildest, looniest rides around and share them with you. Up first is a sweet piece of Japanese engineering that has been turned into a movie production vehicle and the best ice hockey carpool ride around. You won’t have to worry about being asphyxiated by the odor of teenagers and hockey gear (it is seriously the worst smelling sport on the planet) and instead will enjoy the pleasant breeze and soothing screams from your passengers on the freeway. Find this 2004 Toyota Sienna offered for $3900 in Orange County, CA via craigslist.

“odor of teenagers and hockey gear (it is seriously the worst smelling sport on the planet)”
When I lived in the private school belt of the upper east side of Manhattan somehow my schedule synced up once a week with a second avenue bus filled with field hockey players after practice. If you imagine a bus full of sweaty hyper-aggressive teenage girls with big sticks talking smack about everyone and everything you get the picture. Smelled mostly ok except for the whiff of old money. I guess ice hockey smells different. What liquid are they freezing in hockey rinks anyway?
If you play an outdoor sport that requires pads (football, soccer, field hockey, etc) when you are done playing there is a chance that your equipment will be exposed to sunlight and fresh air…but there is something about an indoor sport that is played at cool temperatures where you sweat like a son-of-a-gun but you zip your shin/knee/elbow/shoulder/hip/cup/head pads into a giant canvas crock pot (sprinkle some ice left from your last shift) and allow the flavors to combine into an exquisite mélange of body odor, foot funk, and crotch. I played ice hockey as a kid and I can tell you that even as a 13 year old I knew I smelled like burning skunk scat with freshly washed equipment…and I understand why my Dad would roll down the windows despite rain/cold weather, etc.
