Many of us use Autotrader to look for cars, SUVs, pickup trucks and other kinds of vehicles that normal, everyday people might use while going about normal, everyday tasks, such as driving to work while singing along with the new Jimmy Eat World album. But what if you want to buy a weird vehicle? For a weird task? Like bringing travelers from the airport to your hotel? Well, it turns out that Autotrader has some of those unusual work vehicles, too -- and I've listed six of my favorites.

   2006 Chevrolet Express Shuttle Bus With Wheelchair Access

2006 Chevrolet Express Shuttle Bus With Wheelchair Access - $22,995

Ever get tired of having to deal with your minivan's sliding doors? Here's a great solution: Buy a used airport shuttle. This 2006 Chevy Express 3500 shuttle bus is offered by High Country Truck and Van in Fairview, North Carolina, near Asheville, and it features a front set of doors and wheelchair access in back. The total seating count is currently eight seated passengers or up to five wheelchairs -- though with a little rearranging, I bet you could get even more seats (or wheelchair space) in this thing. Just imagine, your kids won't fight in back anymore -- and not just because they have their own bucket seats, but because they have their own row.

2011 Chevrolet Silverado with Crane Hoist

2011 Chevrolet Silverado with Crane Hoist - $16,995

Coming to us from a dealer called Commuter Cars in Port St. Lucie, Florida, is this 2011 Chevy Silverado 3500 with a flatbed and a crane hoist. I admit I've never worked any sort of job that would require the use of a crane hoist, but I'm not exactly sure why this vehicle would have this mounted on the back. A crane, I could understand -- you need to be able to reach cats when they get stuck in trees. But this tiny hoist? It looks like the entire purpose of this truck is to carry around automobile engines. Nonetheless, I will not judge you for buying it. I will, however, express my admiration for anyone who buys something that's already traveled 349,000 miles.

2012 Chevrolet Silverado Ambulance

2012 Chevrolet Silverado Ambulance - $21,990

Now, this thing is cool. Who among us hasn't dreamed of climbing into our own personal ambulance and moving traffic out of the way with the push of a button? Well, now you can, thanks to Essig Motors in the tiny town of Essig, Illinois. This is a 2012 Chevy Silverado 3500 that's been converted into an ambulance, and it's ready for further ambulance duty -- as evidenced by the giant "EMS" and "AMBULANCE" inscriptions on the side and the abundance of flashy lights. OK, I don't actually advocate buying this thing and using it to cut traffic, but it could be the basis of a pretty cool adventure vehicle, with a huge box in back, a Duramax engine that's just broken in after 181,000 miles and a somewhat reasonable $21,990 price tag.

2016 Chevrolet Silverado Quad-Cab Dump Truck

2016 Chevrolet Silverado Quad-Cab Dump Truck - $62,541

There are a lot of dump trucks on Autotrader. I'm not quite sure why this is, but it's unquestionably true: This site is replete with vehicles that can hoist up their bed and dump stuff. But this brand-new 2016 Silverado 3500 dump truck is my absolute favorite for one particular reason -- because, inexplicably, it's a quad cab. That means you don't have to just bring one friend when you go around loading stuff into your truck bed and dumping it on random lawns. Instead, you can bring an entire crew of friends along for the ride. The only potential problem? These things are expensive. This particular dump truck is listed for $62,541 at Garber Chevrolet in Midland, Michigan.

2000 Ford F-450 Cherry-Picker

2000 Ford F-450 Cherry-Picker - $17,950

My personal favorite vehicle on this list is this one: a 2000 Ford F-450 that's been converted into a cherry-picker. Just look at that extension in the first picture!! You can reach any tree! Any hill! Any cliff! Want to buy a pickup? You could get this one and drive it most of the time like any normal truck -- until it's time to eat your lunch, take a private phone call or read a book in solitude. Then, you just drive somewhere with a nice view and climb up in your cherry-picker! And all this can be yours for just $17,950, thanks to Truck and Van Country in Shingle Springs, California, which sounds made-up but is actually a small town near Sacramento.

2016 Ford F-450 Tow Truck

2016 Ford F-450 Tow Truck - $59,900

This is what tow trucks cost?! No wonder they're always towing people from questionable parking spaces and finding themselves at the center of reality-show-style disputes that involve the local news stations -- they have to finance their $60,000 tow trucks! Anyway, if you'd like to join the towing business, you can get this brand-new 2016 F-450 from Akins Ford in Winder, Georgia, outside of Atlanta.
