Looking through the “Other Makes” section of Ebay recently, I noticed a couple of listings that were just a little curious, and I thought I would share. One is a “Concept Car” the other is a car with a new “Concept”. OK Jim, what are you trying to say? Well, make the jump to find out more. Let’s start with the “Concept Car” This is just a rolling piece of Fiberglass, no engine, no windows, not even a way of steering the thing. According to the listing:
RARE CHANCE TO OWN A SLEEK CONCEPT CAR. THIS WAS BUILT ALONG WITH A HANDFULL OF OTHERS. THE COMPANY HAS SINCE CEASED OPERATIONS, I GUESS THERE WAS NO BAILOUT MONEY FOR THE COMPANY.THE CAR HAS NO INTERIOR OR DRIVELINE. IT IS A WELL BUILT HANDMADE SHELL VERY SOLID.THE CAR ROLLS BACK AND FORTH BUT DOES NOT STEER. THE DOORS DO NOT OPEN AND THE WINDOWS ARE NOT OPERATING. THIS WAS NOT A CHEAP BODY TO BUILD IT WOULD BE GREAT FOR A SIGN TO PROMOTE YOUR BUSINESS OR PLACE ON THE ROOF OF A BUILDING. EXCELLENT FOR ANY TELEVISION COMMERCIALS/MOVIE OR JUST PARK IN YOUR DRIVEWAY AND BE THE TALK OF THE NEIGHBOURHOOD. DRAWS A LARGE CROWD WHEN IT IS PARKED.
I guess the CAP LOCK key was on at the time of composition, and the spell checker was turned off. Anyway, do you think this piece of Fiberglass is worth $8,000? Read the listing Here. Our next contestant is an Old Dodge that has been turned into a Barbecue and Picnic Table. Hold on to your sanity, because here’s a sample of the listing:
Well; I will bet you have never seen anything like this before. First off yes it runs and drives. I’ll tell you about the car.It was a 48 dodge 4 dr . The body has all the great Rat Rod patina ,some light surface rust . And some bondo showing . Its flat black with the old school candy stripes on the roof. Also a convertable or ragtop mid section. It also has the old Polyglass Goodyears on the front .And slicks on 10″ wide rims out back .Just like a good rat rod should. Well thats what it looks like . I’ll start at the front and tell you about it all the way back. It sets real low in front ,but you can still get it up on a trailer .There is a ” gasser” tank out front . Under the hood ,I put A grill to cook on under the passenger side of the hood and a cooler on the driver side. Also under the hood is a propane bottle and an air tank for the air horn . O.K. we move to the inside .The picnic table will seat 7 if you mix kids and adults. 5 adults comfy. Cup holders have been cut out from the table ,thats so your drink don’t bounce out . The table is welded in .The floor is exspanded metal mesh ,if you spill something it goes right through .And know the cool stuff The driver seat ,yes it drives . Is in the rear ,and the controls are all a little hidden . It give the look of who’s driving this crazy thing
