V8 Powahhhh: 1998 Boss Hoss

Way back in 1990, when Margaret Thatcher was still prime ministress of England and Germany was still split into two separate entities, there was a gap in the world of mechanized automobiles.  You could get a V8 powered muscle car, and you could get a menacing 2-wheel cruiser to terrorizing townsfolks -- but a combination of the two was not yet realized.  Enter Mr Monte Warne of Dyersburg, TN, who had a background in rodeo roping and an ABD PhD in Kinesiology, but had not yet planted his flag in the Everest that is the custom motorcycles.  Find this 1998 Boss Hoss offered for $19,500 in Cincinnati, OH via craigslist.



The Boss Hoss is powered by a 350 cubic inch Chevy small block mated to a 3-speed automatic gearbox and a fat toothed belt.  With 355 horsepower and 1100 lbs to toss around the Boss Hoss should be about as much fun as a naked Amazonian lady with two white Bengal tigers.

  1. Saw the Plasmatics play in NYC back in'84 and Wendy was wearing the same strategically place electrical tape.

  2. Was that that show at Irving Plaza where she had a Thompson sub machine gun she fired during one song?

    Even back then that was a whole lot of WTF.

    Poor Wendy, she had a lot of demons but really knew how to put on a show.

    1. It was the show at Bond's that used to be in Times Square. May not have been exactly 1984, but close. That show had a car on stage that she threw an explosive into it and it blew apart. Crazy times! They used to play NY and NJ a lot back then. Wish I saw the show when she drove the Cadillac through the band set on the NY pier, LOL. RIP Wendy.
