Loony Labor Day wouldn’t be complete without featuring a vehicle that could be used to smuggle booze or people across state lines…and in this next car you could smuggle intoxicated people with ease. My only gripe is that the seller doesn’t include a good picture of what is going on with that tanker back end…but behind the cab appears to be a sound insulated sleeping area.

Find this 2000 Ford F350 Tanker Truck offered for $18000 buy-it-now or make-offer located in quirky Albuquerque, NM. Tip from Hugh.
This next car came in as a tip from BP who reminded me that Hemmings had gotten into the auction business a few years ago to compete with all the online auctioning that is springing up around web.

Find this 1997 Ford F350 XLT Crew Cab with Power Stroke diesel bidding for $2000 reserve-not-met with 6 days to go on Hemmings.com.

Ok, there’s not much special about this rig except it’s back story. The seller says the 22k miles are probably original […]
In 1987, the third generation of Ford’s E-series van was closely related to the 8th generation of Ford’s F-Series pickup and shared most major drive-line components, so it would be natural to want to assembled them together into some kind of hideously awesome and thoroughly zombie-proof Frankencamino. The resulting 1987 Ford E350/F350 EconolineVan/PickUpTruck hybrid is […]
