you need to go look in the windows of a bunch of cars..

everything from honda's to some pick-up trucks have console mounted gear selectors.

I don't about it. It screams unique, but not really my style.

Look at it. It has no play to left or right, just front to back.

I highly doubt a manual would have the gears located in that pattern.

You see more console/floor shifters in autos than column shifters in newer cars.

Up Shift

Just a guess, after looking at the motor, could be a c4 transmission

what part of the trans are you gonna get your shoe lace caught in? the bell housing/torque converter/fly wheel are on the other side of the fire wall.

the rib cage is different, it almost looks like a work in progress.

the exhaust cut out in the bumper seems pretty well thought out, you can't just put some pipe in and have it work.
i dont have a problem with MSD, i just wouldnt wanna look at the box in the interior.

and im not talking about getting a lace caught in a moving part, just on something as you try to get out or just move your feet around while driving. though i dont think this thing drives anywhere.

Very cool, haven't seen much of anything on that truck else-where.

Not 100% sure about the wire rib interior (it looks like it's missing something or still being completed) but the rest is very unique/cool . . . impractical, but cool.

It's obviously under construction. As I said earlier, taking your under construction truck to the shows is all the rage right now. And RHD conversions are all the rage too, but I think they're completely stupid.

It looks like it might be a door so you can see the rear suspension.

And you would run the exhaust to the back . . . where?

He wanted to keep it simple as possible, mission accomplished.

Love the C10 (I believe it is), I think I'd love the Taco a bit more without the Tribal and in a "crew cab" body, the rims/headlights/tint/paint tie together perfect.
