People do strange things. If you are confused by the images above, you are in good company. I am one of those people that hates to see a classic car in good original condition ruined with questionable taste & potentially unsafe customization. On the other hand, I am all for doing whatever you want with a car that has been left for dead. I’m not sure what the story is with this car, but seeing it in it’s current state leads to my brain hurting. It isn’t that I don’t approve of low vehicles, because I certainly do. In fact, I prefer my vehicles that way. (more…)
It would be untrue for me to say that I don’t need a 1970 Subaru Samvar 360 Van in my life in a big way. A fellow Subaru enthusiast passed this eBay listing over to me (Item # 250742053151) because a car soooo spectacular obviously deserves to be put on a pedestal in public view. Just look at how ridiculous it is! I’m not sure if it belongs in the circus, on the grass at the Concourse D’Elegance, doing AWD turbo time trials up Pikes Peak, or hanging the front wheels while burning nitromethane at the drag strip. The possibilities are endless! Could this Samvar actually (more…)
You heard right, The “1989 Batmobile” from Batman Returns was just up for grabs on eBay listed as “1980 Other Makes Batman”. Apparently eBay doesn’t have a Batmobile category yet. The listing has already been pulled down though. Apparently for $450,000, you would not only get the cave dwelling Batmobile itself, which does fully function and have hydraulics (Batman, you so gangsta!), but you also get a Batman statue and a Gotham city police badge! BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE! If you had bought it now, a real Batman Batarang would have also been included. Geeze, you guys really missed out on this thing. Imagine going grocery shopping in a Batmobile.
Note to self: If you are going to try to sell the Batmobile, make sure you get “the ok” from Batman, or he WILL put a stop to it.
Note to eBay: Create Batmobile category for future Batmobile listings.
