Welcome to Craigslist Crapshoot, our weekly search for the most bizarre, awesome, and/or terrible vehicles that the online classifieds has to offer. Last week we looked for cars with the most outrageously bordello-like interiors. I was surprised how many of you knew, spot-on, what a cat house interior looked like, but that was only a momentary distraction once I saw all the luxuriant splendor on display. We’ll see who’s the most bordellicious in a sec, but first this week’s quest. Hey, if you’re going to be running a house of ill repute then you’re most likely going to be dealing in cash. And if you’re dealing in cash, you’re going to need to protect yourself when you head to the bank, or where ever you keep that dough-rey-me. That’s why this week we want the best armored cars (actual cars or those Brinks Job trucks) you can find. As always, we want your finds to go down in infamy and not in the site’s spam filter. Since we’ve changed commenting systems, you may need to update your commenter account. Make sure you have a Disqus account – they’re free and easy to get – and then comment away.
To be honest with you, seeing all that tufted velour and leather, my first instinct wasn’t playtime, but nap time. I really want to curl up in the back seat of the ’78 Lincoln MkV found by Manic_King and saw some logs. Two years newer but equally pillow-tastic was the Olds 98 Regency that OA5599 came across. I’m getting sleepy just looking at it, even in its red light district hue. Of course you don’t want to be sleeping while you’re driving, in fact you want as few distractions as possible when you’re behind the wheel. That’s probably why this 1975 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham has so few miles on it (29,000) as its all-original interior is so pimptastic that it’s hugely distracting. Located by Manic_King as well, it takes the cake for the most bordello-like (albeit tacky) interior. Thank you all for playing, and congrats to Manic_King for the win.
