HCOTY 2012 Nominee: ’62 International “Truckcar” Meth Thing

My reaction to seeing this Craigslist ad was this:

  • Open mouth.
  • Didn’t move for 40 seconds.
  • Squinted.
  • Complete shock and awe.
  • Questions.
  • More questions, but not really sure what these questions are.
  • More staring.
  • I wanted to say something, but couldn’t.
  • The only sensible thing to do was to post it here and virtually watch the speechless reaction of you Hoons.

Six months later and I am still equally speechless and I still have a lot of questions. I can’t comprehend it and I can’t explain it. This is why I nominate this thing for the 2012 Hooniversal Car of the Year.

New to the Hooniverse? We don’t exactly just pick a random new car here.

    Initially I was horrified, but then I realized it a pretty funny joke (maybe even a troll), so now when I see this thing:

      I came to complain about being forced to remember this truck/car but seeing this picture has placated me.

    This would have made a great Mystery Car. Now someone please nuke it from orbit.

    Much like taking meth.

    It's the winner, hands-down.

  8. Van_Sarockin says:

    I'm impressed. I don't think I've ever been so drunk that that would sound like a good idea. I have been drunk enough to accomplish that level of workmanship.

    Somewhere, there sits a sad, cabless truck chassis that never hurt anyone: lying mute, like a hornless rhino on the veldt. Please, in this season of hope and giving, help us bring these poachers to justice.

    Just looking at my computer screen gave me a cold sore.

  10. Tanshanomi says:

    Am I the only one who sees this and keeps trying REALLLLLLY hard to imagine it complete, finished up nice with some pro bodywork and a really nice paint job? Ultimately, I can never do it, but I sorta come close in my head.

  11. Gooberpeaz says:

    Dammit I was eating lunch. Thanks. Just thanks.

  12. XRSevin says:

    Well, adding the cladding back to the truck door DOES show attention to detail. The guy might have been sober.

  13. CherokeeOwner says:

    Ever heard the expression, "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should?"

    The guy who made this POS never heard of that one.

    The only thing I can see missing for a perfect storm of WTF, is duct tape,probably used on the interior but I don't really want to find out.

  15. Maymar says:

    I think it's really the use of both an Alero and a Grand Am that ties it all together, as if one N-Body wasn't enough (disclaimer – I want to do slightly wrong things with a 5-speed Alero coupe).

  16. Andrew says:

    Looking at the side of this thing makes me lose depth perception. Or something. I'm pretty sure we can all agree that the only thing left to do is to see how it does on the Nurburgring. I'm guessing right around 15:00 in the hands of a capable driver.

  17. KoshNaranek says:

    This CAN NOT win.
    1. This does not qualify as a car.
    2. I do not believe this qualifies as a vehicle.
    3. This represent the antithesis of what a HCOTY should represent. Search your hearts, you know this to be true.

    If the suggestion that this is an HCOTY candidate was meant as sarcasm, please ignore the above

  18. JeepyJayhawk says:

    So Kamil is trolling the readers now?

    Couldn't find a BMW to post?

  19. James says:

    I think that green crap holding it together is tigerhair(longstrand fiberglass filler) or duraglass (shorthair fiberglass filler)… I don't think it was made for this…
