What The Hell Happened To This Ford Probe?

Illustration for article titled What The Hell Happened To This Ford Probe?

A reader just spotted what's left of this Ford Probe in Albuquerque, New Mexico today, looks like the perverted fantasy of someone who's a big fan of MacGyver and pirates.


I really hope the vehicle's structural integrity is not dependent on those racket straps... but I've got a feeling a hefty bribe was required to get an inspection sticker on this thing.

Any ideas on what other vehicles died so that this monstrosity could live?

Hat tip to Austin Wetsch!



New Mexico is home to some truly exceptional ideas in automotive stuff.

For example:

After market tailgates

After market exhaust hangers:

and transporting cars with only one ratchet strap (load balance? nobody's got time for that):

New Mexico is a lot like Thunderdome. Except with a more obnoxious accent and a thick green chile coating.
