We at DT tend to focus our automotive efforts on things that go fast, look cool, and give you that zoom-zoom feeling, but there are times when a car is more than the sum of its speed. There are times when handling isn’t as important as comfort, and there are even times when a car is a home. This next thing looks like a good option if you need a cheap way to travel with a family during these odd coronavirus days. Find this 1987 Toyota Camper offered for $9,850 in Toms River, NJ via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
Ah Labor Day. Yet another example of America doing things our own way — most of the world celebrates the strange co-adoption of worker’s protest movement in May on something called May Day, but here in the USA we celebrate it in the first Monday of September. And here at Daily Turismo, we celebrate Loony Labor Day, which is a festival of the craziest stuff you can find in the web that has four wheels and some kind of self motivation. We need your Loony tips, but to get you guys into the spirit of things, I’m going to feature this 1987 Eldorado StarFire offered $9,500 in Anchorage, AK. Tip from Rock On!
Sometime back in the middle of the 1980s there was a small company out of Michigan that produced 587 examples of a custom aero-styled recreational vehicle with a turbo-diesel BMW inline-6 engine hanging out back and powering the rear wheels. Styling was done by Bill Collins (known for his work on the Delorean) and the […]
Somebody (who we will call Mike for the sake of anonymity) offered me a free Winnebago conversion RV the other day. Totally free. Just needs some title sorting at the DMV and off I’d go camping and stuff…but the only problem is that if I brought home a free RV, my wife wouldn’t be pleased […]
The Clark Cortez motorhomes built back in the 60s are pretty cool vehicles that get overlooked in many of the typical classic van/RV discussions. But, they are a nice size that still fits in a lot of parking spaces and offers a whole lot more interior volume than a fullsize van (except maybe for a […]
Sometimes you need to sleep in your car. Maybe it’s the only option left before becoming homeless, but hopefully it’s by choice – like maybe you need to drive halfway across the country to see the stuffed body of the only beer-drinking goat to ever become the mayor of Lajitas, Texas and then be castrated […]

Legend has it that famed industrial designer Clifford Brooks Stevens contracted polio as a lad and started sketching designs as something to do while bedridden. This story sounds reasonable, mostly because everybody born around the turn of the 20th century got a case of polio or two. He might have started his career designing the […]
The 70s weren’t just about disco and roller derby…there was also the boom of the recreational vehicle lifestyle. If you want to hit the high road in the RV’ing lifestyle, but don’t have the 100s of thousands of dollars to get a new one, you gotta check out this 1972 Winnebago Brave for sale in […]
Today’s reader ride requires a slightly larger parking spot than the average Saturn…in fact, it needs roughly the orbit of Saturn to do a U-turn. Parking and maneuverability issues didn’t stop 8 recent college graduates from building an old school bus into the SerendipitiBus–something they could drive 8,000 miles and visit 22 states on what […]
