The American Spirit Is Alive (And For Sale): “1962 International Truckcar”

What defines the essence of the American Spirit? The freedom to express one’s thoughts and impulses, regardless of what others may think or say? Well, that’s hardly so unique anymore. How about the freedom to not only act on those creative impulses, but to end up with a legal, licensed, road-able vehicle. And one that can be legitimately sold, so that (someone’s version of) the American dream can be shared? Be forewarned; this picture is not nearly as shocking and provocative as the side view. Are you ready?

Can you imagine pulling into a TÜV inspection facility in Germany with this? Or for your bi-annual shaken inspection in Japan? How many countries would allow this on the road? God Bless America. Salvador Dali would approve.
