Ladies and gentlemen of Oversteer, the day has arrived: you can now use Autotrader to not only purchase a vehicle; a conveyance; a method of transportation; but also a business. A job. A lifestyle. If you buy the vehicle we're featuring in today's Autotrader Find, you can be... the popcorn person.

That's because today's Autotrader find is a 2006 Ford E-450 that's not just any 2006 E-450: It's a gourmet popcorn vehicle. And instead of the photos showing images of the front, and the rear, and maybe the undercarriage to prove there's no rust, you instead see ... popcorn supplies. I'm serious. Image number four is a giant popcorn popper, and image number seven is a sink.

So what does it cost to be the popcorn king? Well, the ad doesn't give the total cost of building the popcorn truck, but it does say the asking price is below what it cost to build -- which means you could get into the popcorn game relatively cheaply. That asking price, by the way, is $37,500, as offered by a private seller in the Chicago suburb of Wheaton, Illinois.

As for the vehicle itself, well, it's a Ford E-450 that appears to have once been used as a shuttle bus, since it has a shuttle-style opening door. It's covered 113,000 miles, and, according to the ad, it offers the ability to make "caramel, cheese, and buttered popcorn," along with "hundreds of different flavors."

Doug DeMuro is an automotive journalist who has written for many online and magazine publications. He once owned a Nissan Cube and a Ferrari 360 Modena. At the same time.
