    The Vancake coulda been really neat, but those wheels kill it, and the ladder and cheezy side plexi windows.
    You gotta admit...it would make you stop and stare if you saw it on the road. :shock:

    That one is pretty dumb looking! I have seen some dually wheels on a rod recently, and they made it look cool. And on cl, someone has 3 1966 Reo tractors... Very 40s looking. I bet one of those on a regular chassis would be sweet! -Adam

    Ya know, if that had a better chop job,
    and the right color paint, that might be kinda cool......in a larger than life Hot Wheels kinda way. :wink:

    i love um both, they look like bodies that would be way to much money to do a nice rod with, so i think its betta this way then to let it rot in a ditch somewhere and you gotta love those doors!

    I've always liked the S-10 as a hotrod platform. They are cheap and plentiful, just as the model T's were in the early days of hotrodding. Back then it was young guys using what was within their budgets to build their hotrods which is probably what this guy did. Nowadays vintage bodies can be pricey, so in the spirit of the early hotrodders, it's actually kinda cool.
    But then again, I customize dumpster bound, English made, diamond frame bikes so what do I know?

    the c10 could have been cool if it had the original fenders and chopped them down to fit over the tires. but as is i bet that sucker handles, still funky looking though. oh and the yellow truck he wanted 15,000 for

    Me too! If it was like most 60-66 C-10's still around, they just cut the rust out, and this is what's left! :lol: -Adam
