Mid Week Match-Up: Horrorod Time

It is the Wednesday before Halloween, so that means it's time for another edition of Daily Turismo's weekly game of Ukranian roulette (which is just like Russian roulette, except you always get shot) also known as Mid Week Match-Up!  Last week we helped DT reader iNteloper narrow down his search for 90s BMW drivers, but this week we need your help in finding the best Horrorods in time for Halloween.


To get this party kicked off correctly, I'd like to submit this 1998 Chevrolet S-10 V12 Seagrave Powered Fire Truck that is offered for a pulmonary embolism inducing $19,500 on eBay, located just across the River Styx.   It is a V12 powered pile of customized whiskey tango foxtrot offered for a staggering price...which makes it the perfect DT horrorod.  What can you find on eBay, craigslist, autotrader, forums? Extra special bonus points for the worst thing found on hemmings.  Comments below:

  2. I think this qualifies. (Not sure if I'm doing the link right, first time attempting this.)

    1. That is something else!! My first thought was "which way does it go?" Drums in the front and discs in the rear will make for some fun times.

    2. It boldly goes where....no speedbumps, driveways or trailer ramps...exist.

    3. Echoing the question of "which way does it go?", let's quote the ad: "The transmission shifter shifts backwards because the cable is too short to hook up normally."

      I say get a swivel seat so the driver can turn around and shift regularly. No harm in that, even if it means you're looking out your rear window to drive. I think whoever built this probably can't see straight anyway, and it probably doesn't matter which way they face to drive this beast.

  3. Not a horror-rod in the traditional sense, but these things scare the hell out of me.

  4. Seagrave engines are amazing things, designed to run for days at full power, and I love the idea of building some sort of a hot rod around one because it would be a tad more sensible than a tank engine or an Alison. This on the other hand, is amazing but not in a good way.

    1. What kind of twisted family dynamic would lead a father to buy this for his son?

    2. Absolutely nothing.... but there still is no room for anything! I had never heard of these cars, so thanks (I think).
