Meet the most famous truck on the island. Or at least the most easily recognizable. And it can be yours for the tidy little sum of 10,000 US dollars!
It doesn't look much better from the front. And you would have to update the license plates. The current ones are two years old....at least! One would think that if they were doing their jobs, the transit police would pull this thing over. Of course, the license plates would be the only violation that they would even notice.
Actually, I have a history with this truck. I sat in this very driver's seat one scary night about four years ago and drove it to my friend's house, who was the owner at the time. A very drunk owner if I recall correctly. I vividly remember that the seat would not adjust and my rotund belly actually hit against the steering wheel. Which, by the way, took two complete revolutions to engage the tires. Not fun on these narrow streets down here. The brakes only worked, somewhat, on the third pump.
There are so many things to point out in this picture. The blue spare gas can on the floor. The lack of real gas and brake pedals. The list goes on. Enlarge this picture to see all the great detail!
Of course, when I drove it, there was a windshield. Broken with holes and shatter lines, but still a windshield of sorts. Notice the lovely new passenger seat recently installed.
And you can use the battery as an armrest.
The best part is the truck bed, or what is left of it. This is the gas tank. A handy little hose syphoning gas directly to the engine.
What? No, this would only be hazardous if there were actually an accident. And that could never happen in the traffic here, especially with all of the unlicensed drivers and drunken golf cart operators. Silly you!
So if you see this truck here on the island, do what I do. Get as far away from it as fast as you can.
