Ebay Finds: Dollars not Sense Edition

People always say that one man's trash is another man's treasure.  Although I'm not a fan of dumpster diving, this seems to be very true considering we have things like Craigslist, Ebay, and 50% divorce rates.  After seeing the two following Ebay listings, I can completely understand the trash part of that statement as well as 50% divorce rates.

At first glance, this doesn't look so bad. It would seem to be a nice piece of military memorabilia and that is exactly what it started life as.  This is a Humber Pig that was built in the United Kingdom.  It could transport eight soldiers along with two crew members.  Well, that's not the case anymore.
Now, it's a 6 ton party wagon that's decked out with leopard print, a 32" flat screen, and a disco ball.  I'm sure that's exactly the kind of life this British soldier wanted to live after its years of service.  Still, the basic principle of hauling a bunch of loaded dudes still applies.

The next vehicle is the very tragic result of the combined forces of a man's wallet and his misplaced passion for car design.  This car started life as a Porsche Boxster with all of its lithe, nimble handling.  Then it apparently fell victim to some sort of elephantiasis.
I can't bear to look or talk about this travesty anymore.  Just click the link.
