Trailer Park Boost Gauge


I’ve made a lot of good friends in my quest for speed and power. One of whom is Mike W, owner of Road Race Engineering. He ran across this debacle and thought it would be perfect for

For you normal folk that have no idea what’s wrong with this picture, allow me to explain. What you are looking at is the instrument panel in a turbo-charged race car. The blue lit-up thing over the metal shaft (goes to the steering wheel) is an AIM display that is really expensive. Sitting on top of the display is an AEM gauge;  also pretty expensive. If you look over to the left, the blue thing with the hose coming out of it is the boost gauge. A boost gauge tells the driver how much boost (pressure) the turbo is making. It’s not even a real boost gauge! It’s a tire pressure gauge that they rigged up in the car! The only thing that would make this better is if they had installed it with duck tape!

Car Stereo Wiring – Trailer Park Style!


This submission comes from a co-worker of mine. He bought the car recently for a screaming-good deal. What was the catch? Someone committed suicide in it! I wish I was joking. There was some dried blood under the seats when he was gutting this trailer park style car stereo wiring out of it!

Back to the point; it was a jumble of tangles, twisted wire, duct tape, and ground loop isolators. There were 4 isolators! Usually, the fact you need one at all should tip you off that you did something wrong!

The Van Man


This submission comes to us from Southern California. I guess when you run out of room on the inside, you have to go outside.

I’m not quite sure if this guy is a genius or retarded. The laziness inside me says, “Hell yeah! One trip!” The normal/sane person inside of me says, “What is wrong with that guy?!?!?”

The best part about the pack job, you say? If you look closely, there is some sort of big, heavy-duty ladder on the back and the roof rack appears very strong as well. That leads me to believe this isn’t the first time this guy has done this.

As a CHP Officer once told me: “Be careful out there. Stupid is out there and he’s looking for you!”

Note: For those of us who don’t watch BBC programing, a “Van Man” is basically a guy for hire with a van to help you move stuff in England.

Who needs a truck? Again?!?!?


Who needs a truck when you have a trunk? This was spotted in the great state of California. Looks like you can fit 10 bodies in the trunk of a Caddy, but not an office chair! At least they tied it down.

Just goes to show you, Trailer Park is a state of mind and is NOT just a Southern thing!

Truck? Who needs a truck?


Hey, when there is a prime swing set on the side of the road on trash day, you have to act fast!

This was spotted in Central Louisiana. I’m guessing they got tired of waiting for Larry to get back to the house with his truck, so they took matters into their own hands. I especially like how all the swings are still attached… Along with a red and black jacket still hanging on it. These guys obviously made a quick snatch. Who needs a truck?
