So we came across this Craigslist ad the other day thanks to a tweet from the folks at On the Fly.
Per the ad, you can buy a game-used Vikings “helmet cart car” for $4,000, and now we’re pretty much obsessed. Per the ad:
This is a one of a kind item that was actually used by the Minnesota Vikings on the field during gamedays for promotions and to cart players off the field. This cart was 1/28 made for the NFL (one for each team at that time). This is the ONLY Minnesota Vikings one available and in existence. The Minnesota Vikings used this for many years at Met Stadium and the Metrodome until it became unproductive at the Dome due to it bottoming out and too big for the tight corners. … The cart unfortunately does not run but would only take a little bit to get it going. It does not run right now as the 16 car batteries have been removed and the small motor was blown that it had in it.
Anyone good with cars? Who wants to pool some money? We’re only half-joking.
