aaaaahhhhhhhhhhh my eyes “Peg im blind”
Does this Galaxie make my butt look big? 😉
My camper is so long that the trunk is not just in another time zone, it is in a whole different Galaxie. 🙂
Nice! High five!
That’s just pure style right there, nothing else! If you don’t see it, well then…
I think Jason Shafer has all the necessary ingredients to create one of his own too.
Likely so, however I need to come up with something to mimic the neck brace and headgear seen on this Dodge.
Oh, how ugly are thee? Let me count the ways…
Instead of neck brace and headgear I was seeing toupee and lambchop sideburns.
Now I can’t unsee that!
Plus a goiter on its neck.
Perhaps those Galaxie taillights actually provide Jet Assisted Take-Off (JATO).
North Americans love trunks not hatch backs
My first thought is the old joke about the girl digging through the pile of manure under the Christmas tree, “There’s got to be a pony in here somewhere”
Which makes me want to grab a can opener and angle grinder and try to get that poor Ford out of there.
“it’s such a fine line between stupid and clever”
Sometimes it’s best just not to ask why.
Well, it is a Ram Van after all . . . .
They were originally going to put a back Porsch on the camper, but the genuine German materials were too expensive and this was all they could a Ford.
I’ll leave now.
Yes my van does have a trunk, doesn’t yours?
Good for them that they didn’t extend the wheelbase. They have cubic light-years of the purest space in that Galaxie…
When you bring a Sawzall, but not a screwdriver, to steal a license plate.
I’ve been waiting for someone to ask, so I guess I’ll step up to the plate-
Do the back doors open on the van? 😉
Exactly. Why would anyone do this?
Depending on how the interior is laid out, the back doors may have already been rendered inoperable. I will admit it is more stylish than those boxes you see people attach to their trailer hitch.
A new meaning for the “Kardashian” van, no ifs, ands, or butts about it!
The anthropological term you are looking for is “Steatopygia”. YES! 31 years after taking Anthropology 101 in college I finally get to use that word in conversation. It and Quetzalcoatl are the two things that stuck with me from that class. Hey, now I was able to use both of them!
At least they could have painted it silver like the van.
Looks like the rear bumper is still on the back of the van. Maybe the ’62 Ford trunk is mounted on slide off rails so it could be easily detached at a campsite? Could be a worthwhile addition if true.
With an awning…nice.
Maybe he’s hiding a swimming pool or a BBQ grill or made it into an accessory fuel tank for extended range or…
Does it have a back up camera?
I’ll say what we’re all thinking. Continental Kit!
