The GTMO Special

A GTMO Special is a car that once upon a time made it to GTMO and never made it back out.  Over the years it's sold from owner to owner until it finally falls apart. There are some amazing mechanics on the Island that can keep them going long past their prime. As a result, there are many cars that look like they are on their last leg still flying down the road. Well, maybe not flying, the speed limit is only 25. Because these vehicles are truly ugly, many car owners show off their talents by painting their cars.  You  see all kinds of cars with polka dots, flowers, stripes and sports team logos. Below is the most famous of all GTMO Specials "The Mystery Machine." Painted by some friends right down the road that now live in Hawaii.  I love seeing it on the road. It brings me back to my youth. Rut-row Raggy.
