I hope this next vehicle isn’t an ex-Burning Man car. There isn’t enough Lysol on the planet to remove the funk of a week of swinger-burner hippies from the cloth inside this long wheelbase camper. But this car is so cool that I might skip the hazmat suit for the experience and just enjoy the […]
The TDI GOlf is known for its ruggedness and fuel efficiency, but it isn’t known as a good car for sleeping at night. Sure, you could drop the rear seat backs and maybe sleep occasionally in a stock Golf, but if you plan to living in a MkIV, you are going to need to get […]
This next car came in the DT tips line as a “Toyota Dolphin” which reminded me of a (long lost) acquaintance who had made a short list of next potential career moves that included dolphin trainer and rabbi…which always made me wonder what kind of food you’d serve your guests at a dolphin’s briss. Anyway, […]
If you tell people that you’ve got a V10, manual gearbox, and 4-wheel-drive they are going to assume you are driving around in a Lamborghini, until you tell them you can sleep 4 people in the back. Then they get really confused and typically stop talking to you. But they don’t understand and they never […]
This next car comes as a tip from Dave in Tampa who writes: It must be the only running, driving and decent condition Winnebago LeSharo left on planet Earth. I can’t speak for all the other Metaverses, but here on our patch of the cosmos it’s gotta be unique. There was a company that specialized […]
I can tell you that I’ve learned one or two things from the years running this website, and one of those things I picked up is the ability to know a good deal when I see one. A camper based on a vintage Ford F-350 that has a all the charm of a vintage truck […]
This next car is interesting. I don’t really know what to say…it is a Toyota Echo…well, it was a Toyota Echo, which was a subcompact supermini…but it isn’t anymore. It is now a camper? Oh. Is that a question? Find this 2001 Toyota Echo Camper offered for $1250 in Santa Cruz, CA via craigslist. Tip […]
If you read, listen, or watch the news, you might be concerned that the world is going to end soon. Or at least that civilization might end soon…but don’t start chewing that cyanide pill just yet, but you might consider becoming a prepper. Or buying a sweet prepper vehicle and just driving it around like […]
This next car comes from tipper TeleArrow who writes: Looks to be in surprisingly good shape for a Northeast Vehicle. Price might be a little high given the mileage. 22re should last. Find this 1992 Toyota Pickup offered for $7500 in Kittery, ME via craigslist.
I’ve always been too busy making a mess in my garage to be a good prepper, but after learning that the main plotline for the 2007 blockbuster I Am Legend is that a virus based vaccine has caused the world’s population to die or turn into mutant vampire-zombies…I’m thinking maybe I might need a good low-key bug-out vehicle. If I had a Pinzgauer, Laplander, or a 4X4 Quigley van, people are going to try and join me in an escape from the zombies, but if I had an Isuzu Trooper with rear seat delete and a hidden camper setup…that’d be stealthy and apocalypse ready. You’ll have to fix the headgasket before it goes anywhere, but that’s what garages are for, right? Ugg. I’m gonna be so hosed when the zombie apocalypse comes and all of my cars are apart. Can I get a ride? Find this 1989 Isuzu Trooper II offered for $4,500 in Culver City, CA via craigslist.
