In America, bigger is better and everybody loves trucks. So, this nightmare on four wheels makes sense and is for sale. Especially if you’re looking for something to use in your local Christmas parade this extended Ram truck would be perfect.
Of course, this is from Florida. Shalamar, to be exact. It’s listed on Facebook Marketplace as a 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 Limo. At 37-feet long it won’t fit in your garage, but it looks like it has weathered plenty of storms without much harm.
If it’s a “moneymaker” why are they selling it?
The ad starts out with, “If you’re looking for something that drives and that is different, unique, possibly a moneymaker, this Limo truck plus giant speaker (Bass) is for you.” First, we like that the seller used “you’re” as opposed to “your.” We can’t tell you how many thousands of times we see “your” for “you are” in posts of all kinds from all over. He or she really wants you to know it’s really different and unique though both are not mutually exclusive.
If you can’t be convinced by its uniqueness, then adding a “possible moneymaker” is pure genius. Everybody wants to make some extra dough in a fun sort of way, and this just might be the trick. Though our first question would be, “if there’s a chance this could be a moneymaker why are you selling it?” Then, just in case you didn’t know what to call it, they add that it’s a Limo Truck. Good, now we know.
What’s that huge speaker for?
One of the puzzling aspects of this is the huge speaker in the back. How or why it fits into the whole limo or moneymaker scheme can only be conjectured. Would it be to crank up the music to draw people to your limo party? Maybe for a tailgate party with the pregame show blasting to passersby? We guess it’s up to the buyer how they want to incorporate this special component of the Limo Truck.
Let’s continue. “With its think (sic) lined truck bed and spacious interior, you’re sure to love this vehicle.” Again, props for “you’re.” We “think” that the word “think” should be “thick.” As in thickly lined bed. Or maybe “trick?” As in trick lined bed? Maybe not.
“You can customize how you want it.” You darn right we can. We’re not going to by a Limo Truck and be told how to trick it out-or think it out. That should go without saying. Then, they sort of bury the bad part in the description, “Body and interior need a little TLC.” Hmmmm. Wonder what they mean? You know what they always say? Things always look better in pictures. Our suggestion would be to plan on checking this beast out in person before purchasing it, just to make sure.
It’s got a V-10, so fuel economy is like 2 mpg
It’s got a V-10, which is great. They were never very economical, and with the added body length and interior it will be an even bigger gas guzzler. But don’t forget, you can make money with it.
Then the ad goes on to suggest it’s cash only or maybe a trade for a travel trailer with a bunkhouse. Wonder what they would do with that? Maybe we shouldn’t guess.
So there you have it. If you actually want to buy this please let us know through our Facebook page and bring it by our palatial high rise in either North Carolina or Los Angeles for us to take a spin!
