I recently featured a couple of absolutely bizarre cars in my Found on Autotrader articles that were both located in Florida: a Mercedes C230 sedan that had been converted to look like a European touring car on the outside, despite remaining completely stock on the inside, and a Chevy pickup with a bed that could be lifted ten feet in the air.

This got me thinking: What ELSE is located in Florida?

So I've spent a little while looking around, and I've located eight absolutely ridiculous cars currently for sale on Autotrader that are located in Florida. Each of these vehicles is crazy, or funny, or impressive, or downright weird, but none of them seem out of place in Florida -- the nation's capital of strange news, weird people and unusual occurrences.

1989 Dodge Florida Department of Health Van

1989 Dodge Florida Department of Health Van -- $7,499

I think this is the only Autotrader listing ever to make me openly laugh. Only in Florida would this possibly occur: a vehicle owned by the Department of Health, a vehicle used for some unknown health-related purpose, a vehicle probably used for some sort of illness-prevention or disease-control purpose, for sale with the advertisement "Easy conversion to a motorhome." The best part: either the built-in sink or the giant "Florida Department of Health" logos on the exterior.

2003 Ford F-150 Harley Davidson Edition

2003 Ford F-150 Harley Davidson Edition -- $24,900

Although a 2003 Ford F-150 Harley Davidson Edition isn't especially unusual in its own right, this listing is rather odd. The primary reason is that there isn't a single photo of the actual truck listed for sale, but rather a series of images from when it was featured in various magazines over the years. Getting past that, you have the neon interior lights, the customized steering wheel, the two-tone seats, and the fact that there are no discernible brake lights, turn signals or reverse lights. Ahh, Florida.

2008 Ford F-350 Stretched

2008 Ford F-350 Stretched -- $55,000

A custom stretched Ford F-350 with six doors is already a pretty unusual sight in the world of used pickups -- but, naturally, Florida takes it a step further. In fact, Florida takes it two steps further. First, it's lifted, as if a vehicle of this length could ever actually climb over anything. Then it's painted tan, with U.S. Army logos on the doors and random U.S. Army-style numbering in back. I highly suspect this vehicle will remain in Florida.

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Off-Roader

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Off-Roader -- $55,000

Occasionally, Florida impresses with its creativity -- and this Grand Cherokee is proof. While most off-road enthusiasts stay far away from newer Jeep models because of their cost and complexity, this 2014 Grand Cherokee has been tastefully modified with go-anywhere capabilities -- and no additional stupid frills, ridiculous paint or idiotic wheels. Although I strongly suspect most drivers aren't yet looking for the "ultimate" modern Grand Cherokee, the few that are can find it right here.

2016 Jeep Wrangler

2016 Jeep Wrangler -- $66,890

If you thought the Jeep Wrangler was already a bit of a standout on the road, well, you ain't seen nothing yet. Bayshore Automotive in Tampa has tons of crazily modified Jeep Wranglers, but this is my personal favorite. Enormous wheels and tires. No doors. A bright blue interior, blue seats and blue accents everywhere. Oh yeah, and it's $66,890. I never thought the Jeep Wrangler would catch on with the ultra-high-end community -- apparently I was wrong.

2006 Lamborghini Gallardo Gold Wrap

2006 Lamborghini Gallardo Gold Wrap -- $95,555

Simply owning a Lamborghini isn't eye-catching enough for some of Florida's attention-starved residents. Fortunately for Florida, we've discovered the ability to wrap vehicles like this 2006 Gallardo in shiny gold. Offered by Select Motors of Tampa for $95,555, this Gallardo will do the trick when every single other vehicle in existence is just a little too subtle.

2008 Saturn Sky Red Line (With Trailer)

2008 Saturn Sky Red Line (With Trailer) -- $19,500

Behold, the single craziest Saturn Sky on Autotrader. Where do we start? Perhaps in front, with the hood, which has an airbrushed dragon breathing fire on it. Or maybe the doors, which have been modified to open up like a Lamborghini's doors instead of out like a normal car's doors, in true Florida fashion. Or how about my favorite part: the color-matched trailer, which inexplicably includes racing stripes. The listing says $70,000 has been invested, but it's yours for just $19,500.

2013 Toyota Tundra Limo

2013 Toyota Tundra Limo - $195,000

If a normal, lifted 2013 Toyota Tundra isn't enough car for you, well, then, you can always make more of it. That's exactly what happened to this 2013 Tundra, which is offered for sale in Miami with a huge lift, an extensive list of modifications and -- the piece de resistance -- a huge stretch in the middle for extra space. The asking price of $195,000 is a little steep -- but then again, when are you going to find another Toyota Tundra Limo?
