Welcome to Craigslist Crapshoot, our weekly search for the most bizarre, awesome, and/or terrible vehicles that the online classifieds has to offer.
Got that? Good, now let’s bring the noize!
While we don’t really approve of the practice of “rolling coal” we do appreciate the products of Columbus Indiana’s Cummins Incorporated. From running at Indy to providing what is arguably the heaviest engine available in a consumer vehicle, Cummins has it all. And we got a load of their work in a number of different formats last week.
Let’s start with something called a Gyro Trac as found by P161911. I don’t know what it does, but I like Gyros and apparently so do a lot of you. That thing looked like it could traverse darn-near any terrain, but seeing as 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered in water, maybe you’d like jim‘s contribution, a handsome 1991 32-foot Corvette boat. Honestly, I’d be all over that.
Of course if you’re looking for Cummins power, you’re going to find a good bit of farm machinery and construction equipment. The most popular of those were the Terra-gator seed spreader found by Jofes2 and, thinking big, a 1988 GROVE AT420 All Terrain Crane given to us by tonyola.
Almost taking the cake this week, and possibly a place where you could actually bake one, was the 1994 Osk Kosh, B’Gosh converted bus/food truck/trolly offered up by smalleyxb122. That bad boy was, appropriately enough, made available in Toledo Ohio.
Our winner, with a total of 13 up-votes was an amazing amalgam of old and bold, in the form of a 1931 Hudson Family Sedan rocking a Cummins BT4 smoker, with its huge turbo poking proudly through the louvered side-hood. Audacious and absurd, it gained P161911 this week’s top honor.
Congrats to P161911 and thank you all for the eclectic contributions. Now, let’s slot in this week’s contenders.
