The WTF Files: ’79 Toyota Wooden Truck

Alex Kierstein August 24, 2010 All Things Hoon 17 Comments

Your eyes do not deceive you.

It’s a rare occasion in this line of work that, in that teeming sea of madness that is eBay Motors, an ad actually causes you to do a double-take. “Is that a coffin or is it the Unibomber’s cabin? An unfinished Amish buggy? Wait, am I having another acid flashback?” I don’t have any answers for you, dear reader. Just a quixotic mass of varnished pine and a stringer of saliva escaping my uncomprehending face. Plus there’s a bonus pointless poll after the jump! Make your voice count on this important issue!

Bed not only fits a sheet of plywood, it IS a sheet of plywood!

eBay probably contains 99% of all wooden-bodied cars ever produced. There’s that that’s been making the rounds since Henry Ford was in diapers, for example. Now there’s this … this THING, created in an unholy (Mad_)science experiment not unlike those mice running around with human ears on their backs. Under the magnum opus of a North Carolina cabinet maker lies the heart and bones of a ’79 Toyota truck, 20R and all. The tugboat-bridge-style cab is emboldened by what I can only assume to be the quilted velour fabric stolen from a bordello’s fainting couch out of a 1960s spaghetti western. It begs for a “My Boss is a Jewish Carpenter … Really, His Name is Ira Weinberg And He Made This” bumper sticker and a hand-crafted 1:25 model carved from driftwood that you force everyone to admire.

Doest thou pine for it?

    How did they resist the temptation to write "HARDWOOD" on the tailgate?
