When you already own a 1969 Morris Minor 1000 Traveller wagon and you're the captain of the Dai Hard Charade 24 Hours Of LeMons team, a super-rare Rocky makes plenty of sense.

According to this Rocky's owner, top speed in low range and fifth gear is just 29 MPH, so it should be good for climbing 80% grades… which won't be found in completely flat Alameda.
