DOTS-O-Rama Sunday, San Francisco Edition: Vixen 21 TD, Plus Bonus Mopar Deathwagon


This is Down On The Street Bonus Edition, where we check out street-parked vehicles located in places other than the Island That Rust Forgot. We continue the San Francisco fun with this BMW-powered RV.

Akier found this 80s Vixen 21 TD (more info on this futuristic RV may be found at the Vixen Owner's Association site) in San Francisco, then added some shots of an extremely evil Burning Man-style early-70s Chrysler product he found across the bay in Oakland. Here's what he has to say about these fine street-parked machines:

Hey Murilee! I saw a Vixen today. At first I thought I'd jumped 400 years (light-years?) into the future, but then I realized it was just an RV, albeit one with a DeLorean connection and a rear-mounted BMW diesel motor! Cool huh? This one was in Cole Valley.

And I was in my stomping grounds, Temescal, when I saw this Mopar Deathwagen on the street. Rust, primer, and Roland electronics combine to form the world's most prototypical Burning-Man-pseudo-fascist-Mad-Max-reject-rolling-art-concept. Adina of Adina's Car World, the shop it was parked at, claimed "the flamethrowers were currently inoperative." Thank the maker!

Sorry for the craptacular photo quality. I think my iPhone has a congenital lens defect. Enjoy!



And, thanks to our all-knowing commenters, it turns out that the Mopar Deathwagon is famous, having appeared on the cover of Information Society's 1990 album, Hack:
