Unusual car spotted around Reno – Here’s its backstory

September 24, 2023 by No Comments

If you’ve been around Reno lately then you may have bumped into this ‘thing’ which is basically a limousine on the wheels of a monster truck. As if that wasn’t zany enough, it also has a top section so you can hang out on the roof.

This car has been sighted over the past year and dates back to early last year. In fairness, it’s not exactly subtle and you’re not going to forget it in a hurry either. Before anyone asks, it is road-legal as well, despite probably taking up about three lanes due to its size.

It turns out that this is the project of a few friends who named the vehicle the ‘USS Compensator’. Here, they can be caught driving around Reno and even hold parties inside the limo area of the vehicle. In one photo, they even captioned it ‘Reno is ours.’ This was found on the Instagram page for the car. To be fair, it definitely deserves its own social media account.

Although it’s certainly an acquired taste, it’s certainly eye-catching. On one Reddit thread where it was spotted in the wild, one user wrote: “Not the choice I would have gone with, but I do admire the level of commitment.” Love it or hate it, it looks as though this ride definitely has bags of character.
