Believe it or not we had those little Rampages in the Army out in New Mexico back in the days. We would fly down desert roads in those things. I thought they were pretty cool vehicles. Haven't seen one forever!


becara_sa

I grew up in New Mexico, my dad had a rampage for a while, I wonder if that's where it came from?? They're not that common...

I thought that was the bumper car power hook thing.

That’s totally what it is. Wouldn’t have realized without your comment.


dominyza

The official technical term for it.


ranganrs1

I suppose you could call it a pantograph, at least that's what the similar devices on trains/busses/trolleys/ etc. are called. I'm sure the bumper car manufacturers and operators have a term for it.


high_orange

Bumper car manufacturer here. We call it by the official technical term: the bumper car power hook thing.

The. More. You. Look. At. It. Did not disappoint. At all


curiosityLynx

Roughly in the order I noticed: * Those color choices... * That thing on the hood * Painted by hand * Is that duct tape on the hood? No, just looks that way. * Replacement headlight * What's that thing sticking out of the right side mirror? * Don't know if those red things on the roof are an addition, but there's a gap on the right. * Is that a fat slab of metal bolted onto the back? * Why are there wires coming out of the hood and disappearing into the slit by the hood's front lip? * For some reason, the sealant around the windshield in was painted yellow, but only in the top right corner. * And apparently so was the top edge of the side window. * It seems the car was originally red or orange, there's a bit of old color sticking out in front of the front wheel. * The paint job on the right edge of the hood seems to have been intended to be straight, while on the left edge it's apparently curved. * The seats inside are bright red... * Wait, what's with this assemblage of various horns/speakers on top? I thought that was part of the background until I looked closer! * Those horns aren't arranged symmetrically and both sides have the left horn drooping lower. I probably still missed a few things. Edit: * Oh hey, the red things on the roof aren't even in a straight line. Edit 2: * Oh fuck I didn't see that antenna until someone pointed it out! It's... something.


sighduck42

also, the snake on the dash


essuomelpmap27

The seats inside aren’t red... they appear to have Yosemite Sam (or similar) seat covers.


curiosityLynx

That looks like a stuffed animal on the passenger seat to me.


RobertoPaulson

I’m thinking Angry Birds.


idwthis

>What's that thing sticking out of the right side mirror? On the driver's side? Just the door handle is the same yellow, so it just looks like something is sticking out lol I was fooled too until I zoomed in.


foodbringer

Paint job. Boat cleats. Rubber snake. Headlights. I am SO curious what that back window says.


RandomInSpace

“Boy & Melinda” if I’m not mistaken, but that took a lot of eye squinting to realize part of the rear view mirror wasn’t in the lettering lmao


BonkoTheHun

I think it's "Roy & Melinda"


RandomInSpace

That would make more sense lol


curiosityLynx

Am I the only one seeing an A in front of the M?


Semi_Recumbent

Oh did you miss he’s rolling with Yosemite Sam? Check out the passenger seat.


Behalter

Needs more horns.


foodbringer

Honestly thought you meant something like animal horns and wondered how I might have missed those.


Semi_Recumbent

And cowbell


JB_Wong

I wonder what the dock cleats are used for, probably to complete...the look.


LaDoucheDeLaFromage

I really, really want to see pics of the bed.

"I'd like a Boba Fett themed car , and I have a budget of $80 total. " In fairness its not the worst I've seen.


barbarian818

This is a pretty battered example of a factory produced car. The 1984 Dodge Rampage. Except for the hood scoop, the body is unmodified and looks like a "work in progress" to me. The cab lights and headache rack are obviously after market additions. Source: I once owned am 1982 Rampage. I really miss that car sometimes. It was an anemic and gutless, very cheap interior, but surprisingly fun to drive.


insert_cookies

My grampa owns this very model to this day. Only a few thousand were made and they weren’t very popular for some reason


Trekintosh

Nobody back then wanted a front wheel drive pickup car that couldn’t carry much weight in the bed and was dangerously slow and built terribly. I desperately want one.

agarrabrant

Man I've wanted a Brat for ages... I'd be happy with that one!


wiwalker

not a brat, its a dodge rampage. I don't think I've ever even seen one in real life, amazing there's still any on the road. I've heard they're real pieces of crap although they look kinda cool


someonestopthatman

They're not any shittier than any other 80s FWD mopar really. I've seen people stuff the 2.2L turbo engine in them and run 13s at the drags all day. Not too shabby for a shitbox of that era.


thagthebarbarian

Well it's a k-car variant and exceptionally rare in the first place, it's not like there's many aries left out there either because they're all really awful cars


agarrabrant

Ah ok thank you for the clarification! Yet another car/truck to add to my wishlist.


dinomelia

I had never even seen a Brat until I married my husband, he has 2.5 Brats. Its ridiculous.


Bah-Fong-Gool

BRAT had awd. Rampage was a K-car so... FWD. Not to say ther weren't any fun K-cars... turbo minivan and the Shelby Omni GLH and GLH-S.


capatiller

My first car was an ‘84 Brat. I loved that thing.


agarrabrant

Mine was a 76 D100. Always wanted a car/truck though! 64 El Camino is top of my list


capatiller

Oooh. I love the old el caminos.


poonsweat

Well that’s a fucking lie. It never once improved from first look.


ecctt2000

Well the hubcaps match


ShanestudiosYT

It’s a shame, because you don’t see Dodge Rampages too much at all. And that’s one less, because this is too unrecognizable.


DrunkinCosmonaut

Hell yeah brother


DREWBEVR

This guy follows proto.


insert_cookies

This specific car is actually really hard to find because they only made a few thousand of them. My gramps is actually a proud owner of his and takes a well good care of his and had all the parts replaced and the car was actually painted last year. There’s not a single scratch on his car. I don’t know what the hell is going on in this picture. Ig it’s another proud owner or something as it says “RAMPAGE” though it looks like a homemade fishing boat


curiosityLynx

Maybe it *used to* belong to a proud owner and was seized and sold at auction to someone who just wanted an old car to unleash his "creative juices" on.


Raymojica

Is this Australia? It looks like a “Ute”


Hank-the-ninja

It’s a Dodge Rampage.


Raymojica

These style cars are very popular in Australia. They deck them out like crazy un needed accessories. I never seen this one.


purdinpopo

Basically a Dodge Charger with a bed. I can't remember if there was a Shelby version. I thought the Shelby Charger was cute.

No. No, it doesn't.

hismuffiness

It does get better! Notice the: primer paint, the hood clips, the bed in the back, the yellow trim pieces, the headlights, the horn selection, the antenna... It really is the gift that kept in giving.


FlowersForMegatron

There is an uncanny valley in the cool/rat graph where a car will decrease in coolness the rattier it gets until it get so ratty that it becomes cool again.

I miss my old Rampage. This could be a beautiful r/projectcar

Is that a snake in the car?

yozzzzzz

True title.


liforrevenge

Is that a Knuckles seat cover?


derklempner

I also saw the seat cover on the passenger's side. I believe that's Yosemite Sam. Also, don't miss the rubber snake on the dashboard.

This is the worst Mad Max reproduction I've ever seen.

I will say, those hood clamps are on point. A buddy and I did that to one of my friends car after not being able to find a replacement for his hood latch, which I bet he ran into the same problem with a car they only made a few thousand of.

Is this from the new Mad Max?

cactusJoe

That rubber snake on the dashboard brings back memories ... In South Africa, putting a rubber snake on the dashboard was sometimes considered a "security measure" - the idea is that those who are scared of snakes will not come anywhere near the car and thus theft is 'prevented'. One bright spark had also done that and parked his vehicle at the Cape Point nature reserve, home to a troop of baboons. Well, the baboons saw the rubber snake, got agitated and started hurling rocks at it. Car windshield was completely smashed in because unlike a real snake, this one in the car did not slither away.
