We continue the Loony Labor Day celebrations with this next car that’ll be perfect to cruise around in the blistering heat…uggg, it is so hot right now. But you won’t worry about the heat when you’ve got a paint job like this, because you’ll be more concerned that wild animals will want to take up residence in your MX-5 or city graffiti cleanup work crews will try and remove the paint. Find this 1994 Mazda MX-5 Miata offered for $10,000 in Long Beach, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
Loony Labor Day
This next Loony Labor Day feature is a classic combination of econobox utility and actual box shaped boxiness. It offers a promise of utility combined with practicality that can only be offered by a custom built in the back rooms of America’s car customization scene. This isn’t a factory built custom or even a Pimp My Ride classic…this is something built like a pair of Levis ripped in a roller skating accident or a screwdriver with a busted tip to form a perfect awl for poking things. It was no accident that this was created by accident. Find this 1989 Geo Metro Box Truck offered for $4,500 in Hayward, CA via craigslist.
There is a heat wave blasting across the amber waves of grain and who’d think that fall is only 16 days away. It isn’t autumn yet, but it IS Labor Day, which means only one thing; DT’s celebration of all the cars that live in the lunatic fringe, also known as Loony Labor Day. This first feature is a yellow C6 Corvette that is festooned with airbrushed photos of legends from the glory days of the Green Bay Packers…but I see Vikings playing traitor Bret Favre on the hood, so I don’t know what’s going on here. It’s crazy. Loony. Find this 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible custom bidding for $9,100 reserve-not-met with 2 days to go, located in Tucson, AZ via eBay.
We continue our celebration of lunacy with this next Loony Labor Day celebration which looks to be the perfect car for a nice late summer day cruise… as long as it isn’t too sunny or if there is any chance of rain.

A stock SAAB Sonett is a loony car, powered by 2-stroke or V4 mated to the front wheels with an Italian inspired design created/executed by a group of Swedes. The 3rd generation Sonett was a strange looking vehicle when new, but somehow a customizer turned this one into even MORE of a head turner spit-taker. […]

The Triumph TR7 was a British built classic that is easily identified by its signature wedge shape, but when someone adds custom black/white checkers and a big TR7(?) on the windscreen…it makes you stop and wonder.

Let’s start off Loony Labor Day with a simple custom that isn’t any more bizarre than the average crap classics we post on a regular basis. This homage to Homerica started out as a second generation (1990-1997) Lincoln Town Car sitting on the Panther platform shared with the Mercury Grand Marquis and Ford’s Crown Victoria. […]
