    Tailgate Machine

    Whilst roaming through ebay motors i came across this Cyclone Tailgating Van, and wonder what everybody else on CF has for saturdays. I met a guy at the Iowa game who had renovated an old ambulance, and wonder if anybody can top that!


    I dream of a better tomorrow... where chickens can cross roads and not have their motives questioned

    I have an ambulance that I got this year and have dubbed the Ames Tailgate Machine. You can see a write up about it at Best College Tailgate Link (College Tailgating Community) or my facebook page under Ames Tailgate Machine.

    Re: Tailgate Machine

    I noticed the ATM last weekend while waiting in line for tailgating.

    It's not mine (I wish), but a few buddies of mine that I always tailgate with have a pretty sweet van. They call it, "The Soup Kitchen".

    Re: Tailgate Machine

    That van makes zero sense to me. You can pile all this tailgating stuff in there for you and your buddy and thats it.

    The ATM looks awesome! Great idea to convert an ambulance.

    Sometimes just getting all the **** up there is the hardest part of the tailgate, depending on the size of your tailgate. Some of the multi-tent tailgates up by the stadium have multiple vehicles full of stuff.

    The ambulance works great as it has all the outdoor comparments to store your items and i can transport 7 people people in it.
