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. But there is a photo with people standing up in the “tank” area, so it appears to be a platform, but some clarification is needed. Find this 2000 Ford F350 Tanker Truck offered for $18000 buy-it-now or make-offer located in quirky Albuquerque, NM. Tip from Hugh.
Loony Labor Day
This next Loony Labor Day submission comes from Safety Fast who writes; Seriously, what is this? Simple, it was a custom body on a Toyota HiLux chassis built at a time when Toyota product planners were insane. They built 100 of these to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the 1936 Toyota AA (which was a blatant copy of the 1934 Chrysler Airflow)…but I think they should have saved the design for the next generation of the Mirai because this is an improvement. Find this 1996 Toyota Classic offered for $49,975 in SF Bay Area, CA via craigslist.
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.
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!
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. Find this 1975 Chevrolet C-30 here on eBay bidding for $7,500 reserve-not-met with 5 days to […]
I bet you thought we’d forgotten about Loony Labor Day. (whoa…today is Labor Day…where did the summer go?). Anyway, if you are new to the lunacy around here, let me introduce you to DT’s annual end of summer tradition of featuring the craziest cars for sale on the web. Find this 1963 Chevrolet Corvette here on eBay offered for […]
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. […]
