Courtesy of reader Alex R. "This is a BBQ trailer made out of the front end of a 1985 VW Jetta GLi. It has BBS wheels, a 10in subwoofer, 6x9s, 6 ½" speakers, 2 kenwood amps, A kenwood deck, and a charcoal 50 Gal drum cooking area. The headlights are tail lights and the turn signals work correctly, it even has its own VIN number and is 100% legal on the road." [Photo by Joel Parker.]
Stereo-cooler from reader Sean S. "The speakers are all marine grade and run off 12V batteries to ensure the tailgating never has to stop in any weather or beer-spilling conditions."
Reader David L.'s gadget is a "6500 pound wood-burning pizza oven on wheels in the shape of a football helmet complete with facemask."
Reader Jamie P. says of Bar2D2: "I built this in my garage over about 9 months just for the heck of it. My friends say I have too much free time and too many power tools."
Reader Josh W.'s submission is "built in beer taps for the kegs in the custom painted and converted delivery truck."
