Cohort Outtake: Mobile Advertising – Disinherited Ventures

I’m not sure how “classic” a Smart is just yet, but you don’t see Brabus-tuned variants very often.  But yes, you can indeed get your Smart ForTwo with big seventeen inch wheels and a turbocharged 1.0 three-cyl, good for sixty in about nine seconds (actually the US didn’t even get the turbo).   Something you do see rather often, however, is shameless advertising and these days, that includes this rolling banner for an estate attorney.  These are fast times; too fast for either discretion or such sluggish-looking Smart.  Too bad business isn’t healthy enough for a Brabus-tuned E-class convertible.

Yes, that twelve-cylinder monster will kick ass and take names, making whichever stiff who stiffed you in planning their estate will regret their negligence.  This Smart doesn’t quite have the same effect, does it?  A shame; I think a rear-engined car with a turbo three-pot would be a lot of fun, but only if the packaging weren’t so dorky.  Longer and lower, please.

Yes, if it’s efficient packaging you’re after, it can be done with a lot more character.  For those who can read Katakana (more Japanese car nerds than you might guess), that mudflap reveals this to be a Toyota HiAce; nice find, and is that a Previa I spy ahead of it?  Distant relatives reunited–perfect.

Yes, a Canadian landscaper is enjoying this trusty beast thanks to more accommodating customs regulations concerning automobiles up north.  If the vehicle your business chooses says anything about the quality of your work, this cabover cutie tells customers they might expect a dash of creativity and resourcefulness.  At any rate, it gives a better impression than the vulgar Smart, which alerts all your neighbors that you don’t get along with your family.

Thanks to robadr1 for capturing these uncommon cars.
