Here's an unusual one: a 1996 Chevy Silverado pickup decked out with Superman graphics. And I don't mean some Superman graphics. I mean the entire truck is covered with Superman logos, and colors, and designs, right down to the engine bay.

I'll start on the outside. A quick glance at the side of the truck reveals it's bright blue, Superman blue, and there's a giant Superman painted on the door. Both doors, just in case you're wondering. You'll also notice the frame of the truck is painted yellow. More on that in a minute.

Moving on to the rear of the truck, you'll see the "CHEVROLET" name printed on the tailgate, which makes sense, but you'll also see a graphic of Superman standing there, hangin' out. Then, in front, you have a red Chevrolet badge, a yellow grille, a red tow hook, a Superman front license plate, red and yellow windshield wipers and a significant portion of the underside of the truck painted red, yellow and blue.

Other Superman touches: The bed is painted red. There's a "SUPERMAN" graphic across the windshield, and a "MAN OF STEEL" graphic on the rear window. And one of the five lights on the light bar appears to be replaced with some sort of Superman image.

But things get even more unusual when you step inside. There you will find that the entire interior is finished in red, blue, and yellow, including all dashboard and instrument panels and parts, which appear to have been removed and painted -- individually -- in the bright colors. The climate control vents are yellow, for instance. The glove box is red. It goes on and on.

And then there's the engine. Although much of the engine is untouched, many pieces under the hood have been painted red, or yellow, or blue to match the exterior and the interior. It seems the truck's Superman theme has left no stone unturned.

Although I suspect there isn't a huge potential buyer pool for this sort of truck, it can be yours if you want it. It's at Road Ready Used Cars near New Haven, Connecticut, where it's listed with 113,000 miles for $24,990. That may seem like a lot for an old pickup -- but if Superman is your thing, you will find no more comprehensive tribute.
