Olive drab colored late model tank bus


I heard this sucker was at a swap meet in California. No joke here folks. I have no idea whether it drives or not, but doesn't it look cool? Just think, for $2500, you could really scare the hell out of your neighbors. "Honey, our neighbor doesn't just have another junker VW, this one is a tank!" Sign me up for one....It looks relatively safe too (look at the heavy duty rivets and metal on the bottom of the bus).

 
It's a bus, and it's a boat
This is another real one, but I'm sure you have seen something similar somehwere else. These late model bread-loaf busses are somewhat popular vehicles to lend to butchering. This one looks like it will soon be sailing on the high seas (maybe just a lake). There are other busses chopped up like this, but they ride on the tops of old school busses: as height extensions to some hick-type camper vehicles.

 
NASA's backup moonlander
Yes, NASA held this back from us all these years, and has finally unveiled their secret from the Apollo program. They were way ahead of their time in designing this masterpiece. The project fell through when someone found out this Lunar Excursion Module was air-cooled. Unfortunately, there isn't any of that type of coolant available in space. Perhaps it will be used on a manned Mars mission in the future...

 
Herbie's brother
Yet another secret kept from the public for too long. Disney didn't want anyone else to know that Herbie had a brother. Woohoo! I can't tell where this split-screen bus is from, but I think it may be from England. You know those British...always up to something. Anyway, this bus not only looks way cool, but it looks pretty fast. I guess I'm jealous. I just hope it doesn't run into any speedbumps anytime soon.

 
Tandem axle German Army Beetle
I would go on about how this was actually a prototype German Army vehicle from World War II, but I would be lying. I learned about this car on another website on April first this year. I don't speak German, so I missed a most crucial message that was said to be imprinted on a plate in the trunk. In German, it said something to the extent of, "this is an april fools joke." It didn't take long for me to realize that it was a joke....he wanted only $750 for the dual axle rear end...duh....
