For sale on eBay, for a reasonable “Buy It Now” price of $30,000, is this extensively modified 1951 Chevrolet pickup. Equipped with pontoon outriggers and a driveshaft-driven propeller, the truck is a replica of one used by escaping Cuban refugees in 2003. Not authentic enough for you? It’s built by the same guy who built the original.
You’re all but guaranteed to have the only one of these in your neighborhood, and the possible uses are endless. Start your own ferry service! Deliver beer to thirsty boaters! Start a charter fishing business! Terrorize snobbish yacht club types!
Here’s the best part: if the U.S. economy continues to get worse, you can always use it to sneak INTO Cuba. They’re only 90 miles south of Key West, and I’ll bet the truck is an easy sale in downtown Havana.
