There are lifted vehicles and then there is a LIFTED vehicle. This next one is an example of the latter, where the lift is as much cosmetic as it is functional. Yes, you could go mudding in this next van or cross the Rubicon, but you could just as easily drive over the shrubs dividing the parking spaces at your nearest Costco or find a railroad crossing where you can try and get air. Freedom. Find this 1978 Chevrolet G3500 Van offered for $11,000 in Riverside, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

Few trick-or-treaters came by and those that did were not impressed with my 2020 Batman outfit (batmask up-side-down to cover mouth instead of face, casual work-from-home zoom shirt, sanitizer/handy wipes on utility belt, and a bat sandwich in my gloved hand). They also refuse to stand still when I shot gobstoppers with a slingshot at their open candy buckets from a safe 6 feet away. And those candy buckets and bags these kids use nowadays are weak and tear into candy piñatas at the slightest provocation. Anyway, this next car comes from DT regular Hugh says that it is inexplicitly done to a high standard considering the genre.

Marty McFly may have driven Doc Brown’s DeLorean into the past (and then back to the future), but if you watched the film carefully, you will remember that he lusted after a Toyota 4X4 pickup, which Biff was nice enough to wax for him in the end. Perhaps if Marty had built the original time […]
The USA has always been advertised as a kind of melting pot, where folks with different ideas, ideals, and chest hair can all get along together. It might even be possible that rednecks and redcoats could work together on a custom car…and the end result might not be that bad. So, if your idea of […]

This next feature needs no long and meandering soliloquy/introduction other than to state this is possibly the third most dangerous thing to come from Japan, the first is the actual Godzilla […]
