Frankenstein's Van and other Crazy Road Stuff

While in San Diego I made our host go out of the way because I caught this van out of the corner of my eye. I'm using it to start this thread, which I'm making "And other Crazy Road Stuff" because of some things I saw today.

SO- crazy vehicles and old skool vans, snap your pics while on the road and put them in this thread. No Internet stuff this should be original finds while travelling.

Let the Crazy Begin

You think a PH would handle this?

I would definitely want the electric penthouse lifts for a quad ATV on the roof. Then again, I have found ATVers to be some of the craziest people to begin with.

I will have to get a pic of the duplicate SMB to mine in town, if I ever see it again. It's an older Ford EB Baja Tan SMB, but with a peculiar addition: two silver medallions on the front hood and year doors that read "BOUNTY HUNTER". Don't think I would drive around a lot of places with that ID on my hood.

What kind of load are they carrying in that trunk, that they need a dually rear axle and one that's been moved rearward?

Must be something REALLY heavy! The 15 leaf springs are beginning to sag.
