DT COW: What Would You Do To Get Your Dream Car?

We've all been there.  The car of your dreams is about to slip through your fingers due to a variety of reasons and you dig deep...really deep to find a way to have it.  Would you dig deep with the help of surgeon and a scalpel?  Today's commenter of the week certainly thinks that the Toyota 4X4 Micro Camper Van may be worth it when he writes:
These are wonderful little trucks. I have owned the 2 wheel drive manual transmission version and still regret selling it. I have been hoping for a reasonably priced 4wd manual trans version (4x4 automatics do not have a hi-lo transfer case) but seeing this one makes me really excited. I wonder if he needs a kidney

  1. But how much do you really need your kidneys in outer space anyway? Congrats mountainman.

  2. Congrats mountainman.
    As for me I'd gladly give my malfunctioning pancreas and fatty liver to obtain my dream car. Once I figure out which car out of many that I want.

  3. After careful consideration, this van might be the coolest one ever. From a practicality standpoint, it is pretty hard to beat the toyota with 4WD. As for features, the creator left nothing out. In fact, there may be a dialysis machine under one of the front seats. After looking at the moon ad above, I imagine the final scene from Back to the Future. "Kidneys? Where we're going, we don't need kidneys!"

  4. Wow, thanks. Now my wife says I am without any doubt I am an automotive dork. I'm ok with that
