FTFA: About a year ago, he welded together the front of a Ford F650 to the back of a Ford Excursion. Fittingly named "King Kong" on the license plate, the charcoal gray-colored truck is more than 8 feet tall, about 20 feet wide and about 25 feet long.

...

When cruising around in his truck, he's not worried about the rising gas prices. It costs about $400 to fill both 50-gallon diesel fuel tanks.


I'd like to know how he's able to "cruise around," considering that the majority of highway lanes are 12 feet wide (16 feet on the Interstate system). Does this asshat take up 2 lanes?

Even worse, I bet he's the kind of prick that would lay that penis-extension across five parking spots.

Seems right to him as it only takes 2 fingers to masturbate.

"Diesel burns slower than regular gasoline so it's not as bad as you would think. I don't have to fill it up for a long time," he said.


How can someone so stupid have that kind of money?

20-Feet wide? He's obviously measuring the truck with the same ruler he uses on his manhood.

Still needs the nutsack on the back bumper & a peeing/praying Calvin decal.

I'm sure he has two pairs of truck nutz for it!

And who needs gas when you have all that smug. (See it works both ways)

FTA: "Diesel burns slower than regular gasoline so it's not as bad as you would think. I don't have to fill it up for a long time," he said. ... "I only stopped twice for gas when I drove from California to Monroe," he said.

Monroe, MI to Los Angeles, CA: ~2,300 miles

Onboard fuel capacity: 100 gallons (2x 50gal tanks) Assuming he started with full tanks and ended with almost empty tanks (worst case) that's 300 gallons.

2300mi / 300gal = 7.6 mpg

Yeah, keep on truckin' buddy.

Probably uses the metric system. The bigger numbers must make him think it's bigger when he measures it in millimeters.

It has the Internet? The whole farking thing?!?!

Is the internet in there a hard copy, VMware cluster, or the real thing?

FARK is in his console I bet.

I get such a kick out of the folks who immediately suggest compensation issues when someone buys a bigger car or house than they have, or can afford. You're allowed to be jealous, but it makes you look ignorant.
 
2008-05-06 10:01:30 AM
Clearly they got the dimensions mixed up in the article... I'm thinking 8 feet wide and 20 feet tall (which is still ridiculous).

I'm surprised people aren't bashing him for having such a stupid ridiculous piece of crap... if you don't have a NEED for something that big it's just a blingy show-off waste.

It also annoys me that the FA says "he" welded the two pieces together and then goes on to say that he had a shop do it... I'd have a lot more respect for this a-hole if he at least had the skills to do the job himself.

/rant off ;-)

It's sooo big it doesn't have internet access. "The Internet" is contained within it!

"When I'm driving, people will usually take pictures of the truck or honk their horn in approval. Other people will give me a thumbs up," he said.

If you look close, that's their middle finger, idiot.

Unless he parks it in your reserved spot, please let the man live. Laronda doesn't seem to mind his small schlong, so I am curoius to know why it concerns you so much?

Great truck. The best part is the way it brings out the jealousy in all of the lamers who can't afford one but would buy one in a heartbeat if they could. Keep on spewing your impotent venom jealous lamers. Its most amusing to watch poor people rage against their betters. Of course if you spent more time working like this guy does and less whining about people who are successful you might actually get to the point where you can afford one too.

You know, I'm not usually one to succumb to violent urges. However, if I saw this monstrosity parked across four or five spaces, I would be seriously tempted to find something sharp to slash the tires with.

Can ya name the truck with four wheel drive,
Smells like a steak and seats thirty five.
Canyonero...
Canyonero...

When it goes real slow with the hammer down,
Its the country fried truck endorsed by a clown.
Canyonero...
Canyonero...

Twelve yards long two lanes wide,
Sixty five tons of American pride.
Canyonero...
Canyonero...

Top of the line in utility sports,
Unexplained fires are a matter for the courts.
Canyonero...

She blinds everybody with her super high beems,
She's a squirrel squishin' deer smackin' drivin' machine.

Yahh...yahh canyonero
Whoa Canyonero.

So don't buy one and keep it moving?
 
2008-05-06 10:08:31 AM
As a car guy myself I think it's fricken awesome. Certainly I would never own one because it is useless to me but it's still cool. I've built quite a few things in my day that inspired onlookers to say, "why would you do that?"

I answer, "because I can and I wanted to."
