    So is that of an Edsel. :puke1

    I remember that Jeep grill quite well, but that doesn't mean I regard it fondly.

    In fact, one my favorite features of this truck is that grille's absence:

    Wow. All those guys out there trying to grab attention with their trucks, and yours probably grabs more by doing less.

    isn't it neat how that works?

    I remember seeing my first rat rod (not saying this truck is a rat) at a car show in about '96. It got WAAAY more attention than anything else there and some of those fools with quarter million dollar cars couldn't understand why:rofl

    That's totally true. When I had my 1978 Bug Convertible (sold it this summer after seven years), I can't tell you the amount of attention that thing got. Everyone from teenage girls to elderly men to gang bangers (really) would stop to talk to me or wave and smile at that thing. Parked it next to a $100k plus Benz and nobody gave the Mercedes a second look, but they'd swarm around the old Bug.

    What's the retail price on one of those props?

    Probably a multiple of what my house is worth.

    I'm not sure how we pay for wheels. But I am a captain on a pushboat. The wheels on our boats are around 6ft. tall.

    I think cabovers are preferred as they're more maneuverable in the confines of older European towns & cities.

    Same in Japan.

    You can buy one old house with that in Finland.
    We get more gargo space with cabovers. Thats why they are used in Europe.

    At least here in Germany the total length of a truck is limited.
    If it is a truck with a trailer maximum length without a special permission is 18.75 meter.
    If you have a semi trailer it's 16.50 meter.

    Should be the same all over Europe.

    That's why we use the shorter cabover trucks to get more usable cargo length.
