      there was a kit that turned the beetle into a semi-truck pickup. it was called little 83, or something like that, it had its number across its fake grill... it came off looking like the little red pickup crossed with a beetle crossed with a big rig.

      no kits I've seen besides the ugly ass Houndog. But there are a few plans. Most people just build it themselves (one-off customs). Just cut off the body behind the doors, box in that section to complete the cab, build the bed to your liking. Search my site's gallery (www.runtrod.com) for "truck" and "pickup" for some examples.

      there was one of those locally... it was yellow. but yea, you nailed the description - pickup/beetle/semi

      i'll hafta see if i can find where if used to sit, if its even still around

      I used to own stuff. Then I sold it. So i bought different stuff. Now I just have different stuff.
