Taco Tuesday: 1984 Chevrolet Food Truck

Gianni is on vacation this week, so I (Editor Vince) am doing the Taco Tuesday feature, and I'm no expert on 2-stroke or 2-wheeled anything...but, I do love tacos.  Find this 1984 Chevrolet Food Truck here on eBay bidding for $6,600 reserve-not-met located in Staten Island, NY with 3 days to go.

Legitimate food trucks are expensive beasts, with off the lot costs easily exceeding $100k, and used examples going in the mid $40k range on a normal day.  This is because a food truck is a business and you can start recuperating the costs by selling food on the side of the road -- but be aware that many jurisdictions require permits and taxes before you start poisoning their residents.  The seller of this thing claims that he has a fleet of ice cream trucks and that his Burger Factory themed truck didn't mix well with ice cream.  I'd counter and say that a factory isn't exactly what people want to associate with food, and the truck should be re-themed with something appropriately gourmet, fusion, and hipster. I'm thinking Bacon Tacos, Thanksgiving Taco (you know, turkey, stuffing, cranberry--plopped in a taco shell), Tacos & Vape (nicotine infused taco shells, and e-cigs), or whatever.
