NASA's 'Space Shuttle Cafe' was one of the latest extravagant items sold on the eBay market. The $150,000 machine was built in 1944, and as a once operative airplane, it served pilots at the close of WWII.

Rich history abounds this space shuttle-turned food truck. Rumors have it that it was used in a hijacking mission to Cuba during the 1950s and 1960s, although the stories cannot be confirmed for certain.

The Space Shuttle Cafe took on its present physical form in 1976 when GMC converted it into a fully functional bus. The elaborate kitchen that was constructed includes a microwave, stainless steel sink, hot water heater, freezer and cooling fans. The vehicle can as such accommodate a variety of funky food truck business options. Stats for Spacecraft Food Trucks Trending: Older & Warm
