Bizarre Mad Max truck mystifies San Francisco locals on Mission Street – But there is a simple explanation behind it

December 27, 2023 by No Comments

It’s not every day that you’ll see such a weird vehicle casually driving along Mission Street. While this definitely doesn’t look road-legal, it was being towed which also makes sense considering it doesn’t even look to have a steering wheel. As seen by the exterior, it looks like something out of a Mad Max movie. And, while San Francisco’s streets may sometimes resemble scenes from the film franchise, it’s not quite there yet in terms of these cars occupying the streets.

Instead, it turns out that this was part of the San Francisco How Weird Street Faire which took place a few months back. Here, the bizarre structure was used as a giant prop as part of an industrial show which included music and lots of counter-culture. A photo of the vehicle was recently uploaded onto Reddit by a confused local who was wondering about it and its origins.


Started in 2000, the event has become a beloved tradition, attracting thousands of attendees each year to Howard and Second Streets. The fair celebrates the city’s diverse and quirky culture, with a focus on art, music, and self-expression. Visitors can expect to see a wide array of live performances, interactive art installations, and vendors selling unique crafts and quirky food.
