Arrr-Class Fleet Sale: 1990s/2000s Pirate Art Cars

The guys at RM Sotheby's Auctions think they have the best lineup of classic cars for sale -- and the collection of Jim Click's Ford racing cars offered in Monterey on 19-20 August 2016 does look nothing short of extraordinary...but I'm gonna have to say that they don't have nearly enough home built rigging, custom sails, or swashbuckling I'll save my money and pick up this next set of custom things.  Find this collection of 1990s/2000s era cars turned into pirate ships offered for $2-$5k each or in a package deal located in Hollywood, CA (where else?) via craigslist.

You have to admit that these are cars nothing sort of sensational, and if your idea of a good time with cars is closer to Burning Man than the Monterey Historics...then this is your cup 'o tea grog.  The collection includes a 1996 Nissan Altima, 1996 Mercedes C-Class, 1997 Volvo 850, 1997 Dodge Caravan, 2001 Volvo S80, and 2002 Ford Explorer -- but the base car isn't important as these things are rolling works of art.  Seem them on the big screen if the movie Street Ships ever gets picked up by a distributor.

 See a better ride for a modern day Blackbeard?


  1. Well, there is something once seen can't be un-seen....

  2. Vince, these carships are exactly what I had in mind when I said your Roadmaster has a nautical theme and would look natural bedecked as a pirate's conveyance.
