My Absolute Favorite Item for Sale on eBay.co.uk

park_van.jpg Dan makes a strong case for you to buy a tank, but what happens if everyone buys one? You and other followers of the fad would look foolish driving something that looks like a dalek or a rusty bucket, and you wouldn’t even have the uniqueness factor to offset the crime against design that you’d be driving. Much better, I think to buy a unique classic vehicle, like this one, which Nick Park has put up for sale on eBay.co.uk. Yes, for currently 6,000 British Pounds (a little over $12,000 due to the currency nosedive), you can be the proud owner of the green 1958 Austin A35 that inspired the Anti-Pesto Van in the Wallace & Gromit movie. Much better than a tank, with plenty of room for your prized marrow (changed to “Melon” in the U.S. Release), and the proceeds benefit charity, too. The only problem is, that like Dan’s tank, shipping isn’t included, so you have to get to Bristol to take possession of the van. I’d also assume that the steering wheel is on the right side. But I still think it’s better than a tank. And cheaper, too.
