Mo Motoring Fleas

The  weirdness continues to sell on the flea. Recently this Scandinavian beauty, complete with all 4 original Inca wheels and the original goofy decals sold for $6000.




louvers!
Inca!


And this old beat tasty morsel, said by seller to have been parked for 15 years, sold for the low low price of $1050. Quattro!






ergonomics!?



Picks ganked from the flea. Buy now and save, the place is full of 80's dreams!

Recently the flea announced their intention to return somewhat to their roots as a place where the weird and rare can be found and purchased by the old and crazy. Good for the weird and rare, good for the flea and good for the old and crazy (me!) A hat-trick of win!

The Turds are on the Move!

Spotted on Car Domain.

One of the signs that we Americans should get used to seeing, as evidence of our continued slide from dominant superpower to "The Biggest Italy on the Planet", is the proliferation of junkers on our roads. Now, I like to see these rescue stories so I'm not worried at all, and hey, Italy seems like an OK place, but for all of you leased up to your eyeballs and paying $700 a month to "borrow" a 7 Series BMW trying desperately to convince yourself you're rich, well for you the writing is on the wall, or at least driving down the road.

SAVED! POS Nissan!

Before Sunken in the ground and left for dead.

The Turds are loose!

What the?!...

More cultural enlightenment, courtesy of...me!


Not "Heidi's Topless Swiss Chalet Style, Politically Neutral, Roller Derby Emporium", but her lesser known and likely much less successful venture, the Italian Restaurant. Which sells that classic Sicilian dish, and favorite of Cosa Nostra bag-men the world over, the "Hoagie".


I know we want kids to drink milk, but wtf people. I mean, is that an udder or does the damn thing have 4 testicles?



Because "Place hands under tap, at which time a super heating infrared laser will torch the very meat from your bones, scarring your soul for life, leaving you standing there drenched in your own sweat and feces, trembling with abject fear, a whimpering gutless disfigured freak of a human being and shell of your former self" didn't fit on the sticker?


and not so freaky... a Westfield Lotus 7 clone, in Jacksonville, far from home. Very slick.

Free-Fitty

A deal I've run before with other frames too good to throw away but not worth enough to me to sell. Selling frames is hard on eBay today, what with eBay's shift in emphasis to the 'buyer is always right' default. So when I get one that I don't want, but somebody else might. I offer it for free on the interwebs. This one is possibly destined for Europe, if the shipping is manageable (the beneficiary pays the shipping) and if not its up for grabs. If you are interested, drop me a message.

Suggestion and Reply

My brother posted this picture of a VW on his blog. Clearly there is a lot of interest here in proudly rocking the cool old patina mobile schtick....



...to which I retort...


Have a nice day.

Free?... Um, OK I guess...

From Craigslist Jax:




"I just had a colonoscopy today and have enough stuff left over for another person to do the prep and not have to buy anything. The Miralax is not even half gone and there are 4 Dulcolax tablets left. In my prep instructions, all you need is 238g of the stuff and I have 272gs. Oh ya, and I have this butter dish thing I'm not useing. Just trying to not throw this stuff away. All you have to do is text me and I'll give you my address and you can drive by and get it out of my mailbox, we don't need to meet up or anything."



Um... OK.

What's the butter dish for again? No wait, nevermind. I don't think I want that question answered. 

Good thing he doesn't want to "meet up." Instead I can just boost a half-used bottle of Miralax from the mailbox.

There's also a free goat out there today. I sent Heifer International $75 bucks to send some poor family a damn goat for Christmas when I could have just sent one myself?


In this free crate, maybe?


God Bless America.
