Bristol Palin, Your Car Is Ready

The answer to a question you've probably never asked.

Perfect for chasing down meese, this vehicle was tracked down by our beloved bzr. Honestly, we’re not entirely sure what it was that he was searching for when he stumbled upon this, but however it happened, we’re glad he found it.
This little beast was archived over at NovaResource, from an eBay listing back in 2005. It features a 400cid smallblock, and three one-ton rear axles. The seller, at the time, claimed that it handled very well in the snow, and he had managed to get it up to speeds of 45 mph in 10 feet of snow. Now, I would personally think that those huge metal skis would be a bit heavy for snow like that, but then again, it does appear that the engine is mid-mounted, so maybe not.
And for the record, I don’t even know what a Bristol Palin is, but I hear it likes meese, so I figured we’d continue with the theme from last night’s Last Call.

    This could be a great starting point for my Merlin-engined drag sled…. though it has one more axle than I envisioned.

    Anybody else wondering what the heck it's doing on top of that storage container? Maybe that's where it ended up after the 10 feet of snow melted out from under it…?

      I wouldn't mind the Palins getting stuck up there.

        What? Tied to the hood or the roof?

      Oh, totally. It is like after a huge car accident and you are left wondering how the hell the cars got to where they are. My guess is they build it on the cargo container and realized they made a mistake.

    I want to know how the skis just don't flip over and smash the body

    1. CptSevere Avatar

      Yeah, the geometry just doesn't seem right. Maybe it originally had longer skis mounted on those triangles.

    Would this car qualify as a car that I'm supposed to like but secretly hate? This asshole ruined at least one perfectly good Nova.

      I think that's part of why I like it.

    Here's hoping Xzibit ain't reading this. Unless somebody somewhere wants all the local roads forever scarred and ruined.

    I got nothing. I want to have something but I got nothing. File it under 'cause you can but really shouldn't.

    This car comes with complimentary conflicting reactions of "awesome" and "bleh". Really. Huh?

    It needs one more set of doors to qualify as "practical". I think we can make that happen.

    I believe the Palin is the next model from Bristol. They don’t give you the break-in procedure, so expect some sort of accident early on.

    This would be a lot better if it were built with a Suburban instead of a Nova. While looking for a picture of a tracked Surbaban, I found this: <img src="; style="width: 400px; " alt="imgTag" />

      That thing must have one heck of a power steering pump.

    I hear this is the very car Red Green was conceived in. The neighbors could hear the Frampton blaring for miles.

    Wait… based on the first two pictures, this would mean that there are actually TWO of them?
