    Even has a steering wheel on the back window.
    Fails the safety test though, no red and green lights for port and starboard.
    ENJOY THE RIDE

    I wonder if the rear doors are still operational. You could access the area underneath the forward tool box. Even has a boat helm! That's awesome!

    Why is this in the WOS? It should be in the WOP.
    The picture in my avatar is of the Houston Ship Channel and was taken from my backyard. I like to sit outside and slap mosquitos while watching countless supertankers, barges and cargo ships of every shape and size carry all sorts of deadly toxins to and fro. It's really beautiful at times.....just don't eat the three eyed fish....

    I'm actually pretty impressed. Loos like the rear springs were increased, sheetmetal work doesn't look too bad. Probably gets a lot better mileage than a service van or truck.

    Looks good! I bet he is one hell of a sheet metal guy.

    Agreed. Too bad you can't put a condenser in the back of it. Though it looks like he can put a trailer behind it so it can't be all that bad.

    It would plane out much quicker and easier if he installed some trim tabs, otherwise looks great.
