Default Truck Modification

Hello

I was out jogging this evening, and came across the most horrendous Truck modification I've ever seen Luckily I was listening to music on my iPhone, so had a camera at hand.

It seems the modifier has built a cab on the back from ply, then carpet taped a sheet of plastic over the roof to keep the water out There's even a dolls house window

I can imagine myself pulling into a customers driveway in that, with their ordered furniture in the back:p
Made me laugh anyway
Cheers!

Wow! I hope you don't have any low bridges or wires across the road in your neighborhood!

Must be a noisy ride, too.

What makes that look so funny is the truck it's sitting on. Imagine how great it would look sitting on an F250.

Hmmmm ... I've got a bunch of scrap plywood ...

Sure, John. Just pop your Felder in the bed, and you've got a mobile shop!


You might need a generator, too.


Oh - wait. You Felder doesn't need electricity - does it?

I have to admit, every once in a while I get a real hankerin' to cut something with that thing. Electricity would be a nice modification.

Maybe if you fixed the blade, and moved the wood back and forth over it really fast, you could cut something on it!
