    Vinyl that they use to make bumper stickers. My wife used to do screen printing. What's the kicker is all she had left over was white so off the Wal-mart she goes and buys black Krylon fusion and sprays the white vinyl then cut them out.

    The pictures where from yesterday's USS Tokyo auction. It sold for 350,000yen. That's only 3000bucks (US).

    That is a very well done kit. Most Japanese body kits look like a Voltron character.

    I too drove this truck.... it absolutley loves to rev.... I hit 140km/h for a brief second with the owner riding shotgun (was a bit worried as to what he might say about it). take off in 2nd and shift to 4th and then to fifth. more than enough pull to bypass the other gears. I folowed him back into town in my neon I had a hard time keeping up to him and my car isn't completely stock.

    really loved the truck, alas it was a bit too rich for my blood.

    Awesome! It bears more than a passing resemblance to Richard Hammond's camper van canal boat from the Top Gear car-boat challenge. :D

    har! yes I saw that on tv recently, it was hilarious!
    the thinking behind it was a narrowboat in fact, as i would love to live on a boat (one day i will!)

    it's a shame this one doesn't float though hey! but I've never tested it...somehow if hammond couldn't do it, i don't think i will!

    I'm a huge fan of Top Gear - that was the first thing that sprung to mind. :D

    Those narrowboats are pretty cool - I got a chance to check out a few of them when I visited Ireland a few years ago. I got to venture through Belfast Auto Wrecking in a hailstorm to collect parts for my Sierra, too. Fun trip. :p

    Go ahead and post a few pictures of that, please.

    I'm sorta getting the vibe that you're only here to advertise, with all your non-constructive posts this morning and your signature line... :rolleyes:
