Wack Things in Taiwan 2019



Probably a moneyed local who got into pickups while in the U.S.


You think so? But they were actually using it the way pickup trucks are meant to be used. As in, there was some stuff in the back.


OK, that’s unusual. But all the pickups I’ve seen on the roads so far were being driven by locals.


Crazy. Those things are expensive enough as it is. I can’t even imagine what it would take to get one shipped overseas.


That’s the whole point. It says “I have something that was very expensive and very hard to get.”


This a fengshui thing, all things glitter and light brings good fortune.


How about a Humvee?


With the way they complain about their country and salaries, I think maybe they should try Italian good luck.

Ok, I’m being facetious.


There’s a guy in Hsinchu who drives a fully loaded 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor with custom wheels. Pretty sweet.

I can’t imagine what that must have cost him.


I saw a Dodge Ram SRT-10 (Viper engine) at the Penbay track down in Pingtung a few years ago. I’m sure that wasn’t cheap to get here either, let alone the fuel tax for an 8.3 liter engine!


I know where a second hand RAM is for sale!


Is it in the form of a couple of DVDs?




They have pick up clubs, 4WD clubs, Hummer clubs. They drive together in caravans.


Oh yes they have, do I need to pick you up?


From Honduras!


Big yellow one in Xindian.


God. And I thought the cockroach-shaped luxury sports cars were bad enough.


Tomorrow is a work day, but no school.


Make-up days drive me nuts.
