Behold the Beautiful Monstrosity That Is a Plane-Inspired GMC Sierra 2500 HD [1/4] - The Plane Car 2.jpg (1/1)
Aircraft styling has influenced automotive styling for years, from jet-inspired
fins to driver-focused cockpits, it's easy to see how both industries have
helped each other in more ways than one. However, it turns out that you really
can have too much of a good thing, as we can see with this creatively modified
2005 GMC Sierra 2500 HD we found on eBay.
Current bid: US $12,600.00
Dubbed "The Plane Car" (what else would you call it, really?), this brawny
American pickup was transformed into a one-of-a-kind limousine by grafting on
the fuselage of a Cessna 421B. According to the ad, that plane — when it was
still a plane — was used in the filming of "Black Panther." Now it's used...on
In addition to the airplane fuselage, the aircraft styling was further
emphasized with a free-spinning, and possibly fatal in the case of a crash,
propeller protruding from the GMC's grille. Inside, six passengers can sit in
the aircraft bucket seats, marrying the cozy quarters of a typical general
aviation aircraft with the romance of the open road. The wood subfloor reduces
headroom considerably, making this Cessna 421B feel more like a Cessna 150.
All joking aside, we're impressed by the workmanship that went into the
conversion. We just wish the end result hadn't been so hideous, and we're still
not totally sure what is going on with the front bumper.
The ad suggests that the Plane Car is perfect for attention-seekers and that the
new owner could rent this thing out for weddings or parties. That's not a half
bad idea. It's received plenty of attention already, with 16 bids as of the time
of this writing.
