I saw this in Miami in like 1990…way cool, and LOUD, too!.
BTW excellent site. Since I am boycotting ICHC for their ridiculous “monetizing” of FailBlog (putting ads in the CONTENT!) I now have somewhere besides thatwillbuffout to see interesting vehicles. I have a couple of good ones that I’ll be sending in soon, good luck to you!
So, what is the deal with all these cars with this kinda stuff on ‘em? There seems to be a concentration in the Carolinas & Georgia. Are they getting paid to advertise or what? Am I just getting old? LOL
This is actually a float for parades in and around St. Louis, MO. Schnuck’s is a grocery chain, and also a huge sponsor for a lot of parades in the area. It’s at just about every parade I attend in the area!!
While it is in many parades around the St. Louis area, I’m not sure it should be called a “float”. When I think of a float I think of something covered in flowers that has a top speed of 5mph. With an engine like that, I bet it could go over 100mph!
They had one at the baseball stadium I worked at in North Carolina… So I’m not so sure this should be labeled as ‘One of a kind.’ It was awesome though, they put people in the car and drove around the field
I think there are SEVERAL of these all over the country. I live in NC and have seen at least two different ones, One in Charlotte and one in Hillsborough. The differences in the ones I’ve seen are subtle and noticeable.
