    Haven't seen it mentioned here yet....there's this badass 77 Hilux I've been seeing on the Net recently that was built for the "Roadkill $3k Hooptie Challenge" by Vague Industries, called "Frankenstein"

    It's got a turbo'd and NOS'd small block Chevy v8 popping out through the hood, with a Crown Vic suspension and rear axle!

    A Rat-Rod for sure, but would definitely put an ear-to-ear smile on my face! Kinda what I've been fantasizing about doing with a donor SC400 + my 75 Hilux.

    Here's the most pics I've seen of it so far

    The gauges are one of the best features! (Mine would be doing 88mph, for time travel of course)
