Toyota Highlander Sponge Bob Edition?

Yes, you read that right, because every kid of SpongeBob watching age is a future client, right? Or something. Still can’t quite get my head around this one, although the fact that they announced it at this years SEMA show either suggests that I’m not down with the cool kids (quite possible) or Toyota is grasping at straws. Anyway, for your viewing and reading pleasure

The aquarium tank begins behind the front two seats of the all-new 2014 Highlander SUV and stretches the length of the vehicle.

The Ultimate Sound System?

Of course, I rubbed my eyes, swore someone wouldn’t actually be as stupid to build one, told the wife (but she couldn’t see it) and carried on with my day. But if bothered me – would someone actually build such a thing. So the all wise one (wife) told me to google in, and much to my horror, it was real (and someone had actually bought one!). I now present the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet….
