Take 'm all! :)

Ever stood by your fleet of cars wondering what to drive? The limo? The van? The pick-up?
Can't you just take them all?


Yes you can!

Not sure what the front make is. Cheezburger says minivan, looks like a 2nd gen Prius to me.

There's also a short video of some car/truck that was literally duct-taped together with two or more other cars, It showed up on a Mythbusters special about duct tape.

EDIT: (Was I an egomaniac when I originally posted this?)

Because photoshopped vehicles don't need a registration

I just assumed you were viewing it on a phone or something. Don't worry about it

Looks like a Prius front end and a Subaru rear end. Not sure about the rear doors, could be from the Prius. Probably a Prius to maintain the battery pack location and wiring. I guess its one way to make a Prius pickup truck. Probably the donor Prius was hit in the rear end and they wanted a "Pickup". It would be legal in Va as long as it passed a state inspection.

As a low-res pic it's kinda convincing...

Draw a line from the rearview mirror to the shadow it casts on the ground, then look at the shadows cast by the rear of the car.
