My truck was one of those great screamin deals you hear about but never believe actually happen. I saw it advertised in the local "Penny Pincher" at $4,500 o.b.o. by such-and-such a date. I really couldn't afford a whole lot, so I made a lowball offer of $2,000. It turned out that mine was the ONLY offer... Believe it or not, the guy was so desperate for money that he took it!
(Sorry it's so dirty in the pictures. I don't have a camera anymore since some lowlife stole mine!)
Well, I figured if I couldn't afford a real one to take to car shows, then I would build one myself. I spent about 3 months on this, due to the fact I needed warmer weather to paint. I finally finished it on March 19, 2008. It uses no gas, and I can transport it anywhere I want for free. This is pretty much what I would like to actually purchase.
