As many of you know, I recently sold my imported Nissan S-Cargo, which is a small hatchback/van thing that I once deemed the ugliest car in the world. But it was also possibly the most eye-catching car in the world, which is why it's headed for a new life: It's going to Kansas, where it will be a pizza delivery vehicle.

That's right! I sold my S-Cargo to the owner of AJ's NY Pizzeria, a pizza restaurant in Kansas with two locations -- one in Topeka and the other in the college town of Manhattan, Kansas. Last year, AJ's NY Pizzeria was named the "Best of Topeka," a highly prized distinction, no doubt, that can be exceeded only by having a Nissan S-Cargo as a pizza delivery vehicle. And now they do.

Now, if you're like me, you probably already think it's pretty hilarious that my Nissan S-Cargo is going to live out its life as a pizza delivery vehicle -- largely because it seems like that was its intended purpose from day one. Not only is it a rolling billboard for any business that uses it, but just look at it! Imagine how many pizzas you can stack back there.

So anyway, here's the cool part: Before my former S-Cargo goes into delivery service, AJ's NY Pizzeria is going to wrap it in some sort of eye-catching pizza delivery scheme. And they want you to submit your designs! They've created a contest here at 99 Designs, where some lucky S-Cargo designer will be able to see their wrap come to life on the side of one of the craziest pizza delivery vehicles in North America.

Which begs the question: Do you have what it takes to design an S-Cargo pizza delivery vehicle?

I've included a few images here in this post from a car enthusiast (and artist) here in Philadelphia named John Suchta that show what could be. But you can enter the design contest all by yourself, and create whatever design you could possibly dream up. Maybe you can make it one giant rolling pizza. Maybe it can have ears. The sky is the limit.

So, go ahead, people: head over to 99 Designs and give my old Nissan S-Cargo a new look as a pizza delivery vehicle. When it's finished, I'll have the S-Cargo's new owner send over some images of the little guy carrying about its daily task of delivering scrumptious pizza to the good people of northeastern Kansas.
