I had always wondered what might have happened if Herbie The Love Bug had been art directed by H.R. Geiger.

      I always thought that the headlights should be the eyes.

        Lightning McQueen: [bored] Well, you know, race cars don’t need headlights, because the track is always lit.

          The race track is SO LIT, you guys.

    I know a lot of the kids here like to play with small trucks. This little Isuzu longbed would be perfect to collect firewood. It’s 30+ years old and thus generates close to zero fixed cost in the form of insurance and taxes. It’s really neat and low mileage…but for the ask of 2400$ one could just buy firewood for 4-5 winters, or so I’m told.

      I really like the looks, and the idea, but having ridden/driven in my sister 1991 Toyota Pickup (NA version of the Hilux), I’d prefer something with a little more legroom… and headroom, and shouldroom.

      I’m not that big (6’0″, 200lbs) but that truck always seems a little claustrophobic to me, and this one doesn’t seem much better.

      A bit more power would also be nice, which is why a Jeep Comanche is my ideal truck.

      One of those with 4×4, a 4.0L and a manual transmission would be almost as useful as a fullsize truck, with a smaller footprint.

        Definitely a work vehicle only. They tend to be very harsh rides, too, unless being loaded up with lots of heavy stuff.

          For that use, it would be great.

          Living on a farm, I really apreciate having the use of two pickups (said Toyota, and a 2000 GMC Sierra 2500, which I prefer), for whenever something large, dirty, or heavy needs to be moved.
