Tackle winter's snow in over-the-top eighties luxury with this snowcat stretch limo, posted on Craigslist by its owner Robert Falck of Vancouver. This mashup of an old Bombardier SV250 Skidozer and a 1989 Cadillac Brougham limousine can be yours for the low price of $6,000 CAD (approx. $4,575 USD).

Falck says the thing will move, but it’s not likely to climb a mountain or blaze its own trail; the vehicle is best left on groomed trails, and it’s not likely to exceed 15 mph.
Still, despite the vehicle’s limited practicality, the builder says the Cadillac Snowcat has been popular among Craigslisters. “I’m literally fielding about 30 calls a day,” he told me over the phone.

Over the years, we’ve seen many advent calendars geared for grown-ups. They’re filled with things adults appreciate: booze, beer, and of course, Star Wars LEGO bricks. Now it’s weed’s turn. To fill that niche, Coast to Coast Medicinals, a mail-order medical marijuana shop in Vancouver, Canada, has created a cannabis-filled advent calendar. The product’s description […]
High-def cameras are available to anyone and for much less than they were just a decade ago. Even the phones in our pockets can be used to shoot and edit short films. It’s never been easier to be a filmmaker, providing you have the technique. Enter the Film & Cinematography Mastery Bundle, an online boot […]
Breaking into the indie video game market may be easier than you think. It all starts with an idea, and then it’s a matter of finding the right development platform to bring it to life. No matter what that platform is, it’s a good bet that it’s covered in the 2019 Game Dev & Design […]
Learning a new language like Spanish doesn’t have to be hard. Either you can buy a ticket to a Spanish-speaking country, immerse yourself in the culture and pick it up intuitively – or you can do it from the comfort of the chair you’re in right now by logging on to Rocket Spanish. There are […]
