Default The perfect truck for Ted

I went to a local car show recently and saw the perfect truck for Ted T. Can't you just seen him cruising around D.C. in this little beauty. LOL

Wow, what a transformation! The Beatle has the engine in the back of it, I am assuming they moved it to the front??

ROFL! And someone put a HUGE amount of work into that! De gustibus non disputandum est - just as true today as during the time of the Romans.

Thanks for a good start to the last day of a long work week! Do you know what the power train is? They couldn't have just dropped the rear engine into the front or the front wheels couldn't be turned.

Hi guys: thanks for the comments, and I'm glad that you liked the truck. The engine is still in the back. It doesn't show in the pictures, but the truck bed is not very deep, and designed to accommodate the rear engine.

There were only a few trucks at the car show, but here is another one that Ted could use to drive around (or over) that heavy D.C. traffic.

You'd never catch me in a candy-ass truck like that. My next one will be a Marauder:

LOL I saw that on "Top Gear". You will have to go to South Africa to buy it, and I don't think it can meet American emissions standards.


However, maybe what you need is a truck with flames. There was a black one at the car show that would probably work in D.C. Can't you just see yourself cruising by the Washington Monument in one of these?

I don't think it can fit American road lane widths either.

But with that black pickup with flames I could fit right in with Rolling Thunder every Memorial Day here.
