Pile Of The Week: CB160 Dutch Oven Courage

Its been many weeks since I posted a Pile of the Week, but I just hadn’t seen anything horrid enough lately, until now. Stock pots are sometimes “Dutch Ovens” and gin is sometimes called “Dutch Courage”, and I could not think of a more fitting name for this bike. It certainly seems as if the […]

The Poser Mobile can be yours for $1000

More gold from Craigslist, via the cars for sale section of the 24 Hours of Lemons forum. Its the Poser Mobile!

From the look of this I’m assuming Poserman […]

If this is “I <3 Neddy” weekend errand runner I have to wonder what else is in the garage? Of course, since a mid-80s […]

Jump Like a Gazelle – Update

Back in June of 2011 I spotted this off-road ready Mercedes Benz Gazelle replica kit car in the parking lot of the junk yard.   Well, today I saw it cruising down the street and it appears to have sprouted a full off road spec roll cage since the last time I saw it.  

Pile of the Week: Hondatsun Pick-up Trike
