A group of geniuses in Texas converted a Jeep DJ-5M Dispatcher mail Jeep into a Star Destroyer, and built a fleet of other Star Wars-themed vehicles to drive along with it. Just. Wow.

While browsing for old Jeeps on Craigslists across the country, I spotted a real gem: a 1984 DJ-5M for a reasonable $1,000! But this wasn’t just any DJ, as I’m sure you’ve surmised from the topshot.

Houstonian Patrick and his friends have been making art cars for Houston’s Art Car Parade for some time now, and for this year’s 31st annual show, their entry was a fleet of Star Wars-themed vehicles, including: a Star Destroyer Jeep, an X-Wing Fighter-themed scooter, a TIE Bomber-themed Polaris Ranger, and even a Star Wars-themed electric emperor’s chair. Here’s a screengrab from a video of the parade showing the full fleet:

Even though we had the world’s toughest single-day off-road race roaring around us, we couldn’t help but spend a couple days patrolling the rows of campsites for some of the country’s most interesting off-road rigs.

The Secutor-class Star Destroyer , also known as the Secutor-class battlecruiser, was a carrier in the Imperial Navy and possibly the Republic Navy. The Secutor-class was 2.2 kilometers long and had two ventral hangar apertures, serving primarily as a carrier.

The team used styrofoam, wood and steel to make the Impervium or Duralloy (or whatever these capital ships are supposed to be made of) body panels, and the result is supremely geeky, but also wonderful.

Just look at how pumped one of the team members is about his crew’s masterpiece.

As you can see from the tow strap in the second picture and also the YouTube video below, the Jeep doesn’t quite run properly. Just watch that motor bounce around on those engine mounts. Yikes.

But that’s okay, because in April, this junker won Patrick and his team “The Galactica Cruisers” first place in the “Best Performance” category—a grand prize that pays $500.

Sadly, there’s no title for this amazing postal space ship, or I’d be tempted. Because a short and boxy mail carrier Jeep looks dorky enough, but one with a Star Wars theme? Pssh. That’s taking silly car-dom to the next tier.

Do all the drivers in your family really know when and how to engage the 4WD? Or which gearing (4HI or 4LO) is best for which driving conditions? Four-wheel-drive systems are offered in many configurations such as part time, full time, manual shift, on-the-fly shifting, and fully automatic.
