I've seen this vehicle on ebay. You're going to want to adjust your starting bid, by a lot. It's a rare truck, sure, but there's rust where you can actually see through the floorboard, there's clearly been some sort of collision in the front, and the interior is pretty messy.

I'll be honest, this truck is going to need a lot of love and care to come back; at $10,000 starting bid, you'd be hard-pressed to find someone willing to pony up that amount of cash up front for this. It would take a real "enthusiast", to pay that price.

Not meaning to come off harsh, this vehicle has potential, but you're going to need lots of luck to sell it for anything more than $5000-7000, if that.

GLWS!

Also, if you ever run out of gas, you can break through the floorboard and propel yourself the Flintstone way! 1MPG of sweat!

if you're flintstoning a car (...thanks urban dictionary) it seems kinda counterproductive that cooljjay would toss all that momentum candy on the road like that during a chase.

but then thinking about this ... technically and according to the manual, you need to put the g on a trailer if it's not under it's own power because of all the gears and stuff.

now ... does anyone else feel like they need a tetanus shot?
