Weird Stuff Wednesday – An Evil Villain’s Car – Coca-Cola Mobile – Mobile Radar Machine

Darrek Olson

Each and every week, we comb through Carsforsale.com to find some unique and one-of-a-kind items listed for sale. During Weird Stuff Wednesday, we celebrate those unique items and highlight them in a blog post. Sometimes we try and look for all the items to have a certain theme. Other times, like this week, they are a variety of items that we found fascinating enough to highlight.

The Riddler

The first vehicle we found was this 1956 Ford Crown Victoria selling in Kettering, OH.” The Ford Crown Victoria is closely associated with law enforcement, as it was the favorite make and model for police vehicles. This green machine appears to be on the other side of the law and is made to look like the get-away vehicle for one of Batman’s arch enemies; “The Riddler.”  This isn’t an official vehicle used in a movie and also didn’t make our list of Top 10 Cars From Movies and TV Shows on Carsforsale.com. However, any super hero fan can appreciate this classic vehicle.

coke van

Next, we found this 1985 Chevrolet G10 Van available in Calabasas, CA. There is a big movement going around America where people are, “Sharing a Coke with ____.” Well here is your opportunity to drive a vehicle that looks like a can of Coke. Now, every day you can, “Share a Ride to Work with ____.” This Chevy G10 was originally owned by the Coca-Cola Company back in 1985, so this isn’t just a custom paint job. This is a rare find for any collector. Included with the vehicle is the original paperwork connecting this van to the Coca-Cola Company.

speed trap

Finally, we found this unique 2003 Mobile Speed Monitor Radar selling out of Canfield, OH. In addition to a wide range of vehicle options, Carsforsale.com also has items available like trailers, lawnmowers, farm equipment and other items. This speed radar is easily one of the greatest things we’ve seen in a while. We don’t actually know the legality behind setting something like this outside your driveway or home to deter people from speeding. However, you could easily use this to check your speed while driving by or even use the radar gun to clock how fast you can throw a baseball. This is a perfect example of the amazing things you will find on Carsforsale.com.

If you find something on Carsforsale.com that you think should be highlighted in an upcoming issue of Weird Stuff Wednesday, please comment below or contact us through social media. We always love finding thing like this and with millions of vehicles for sale, it is hard to find everything.
