Cheap, small trucks = cool? (Minitrucks)
I was remembering back in HS (late 80's) that a lot of my friends drove S-10's and Rangers of the 4cyl, stick, reg. cab, 2WD variety. This was back before everyone wanted a pick up, and they were cheap, cheap, cheap.
That got me thinking how dirt cheap you can get a low level S-10 or Ranger right now.. deep discounting and 0% financing surely make these a bargain. The imports are nice too, but generally more expensive.
I've seen some really sweet, tasteful mods out there. lower it a couple inches, nice exhaust, nice set of wheels and tires.
Am I crazy (or just old) or is that a sweet, cheap way to build a fun vehicle for a young man? Obviously you wouldn't be hauling around your kids, or a 7k# boat, but I could really see my younger self in something like that.
In an age when every moron with a copy of the FnF DVD has an import, would a nicely done minitruck stand out from the crowd?
Anyway... just pondering out loud... any minitruck fans?
I know this isn't a minitruck, but it's freakin' gorgeous IMO...
