    I'm thinking about buying this... was just wanting the motor, but I have new ideas:

    Enclose the back of the cab portion, installing a house door for entry. Put a flatbed on the back of it, and ramps, and turn it into a redneck car hauler. Maybe even add a side stairway and railing to get up to the porch/flatbed.

    Is it doing an awesome burnout or does it just smoke alot? What engine does it have? I think a car hauler would be cool. Is the frame long enough to build a small sleeper on the back of the cab like big trucks have?

    my buddy was telling me he saw this wicked truck hauler down in PA, some one took a schol bus (dont you have two?) choped off the back half had room in the from to sleep and keep tools and the back was a flat bed that held a full size truck.
    said it looked killer.

    I have actually seen a couple people here in Maine use busses as a race car hauler also. Since cars are smaller than trucks they just built ramps up into the bus after hacking the back off and had a semi enclosed hauler. and room up front to sleep and have tools. So I do not see why not do the flatbed thing with a bus and haul trucks in that fashion! Sounds like a redneck good idea to me :Waytogo:
