No lights, no plates, no registration...gawd I wonder where he drives it to once a week.

I think it could be kinda cool if he shortened the frame, put a box on it, lifted the body a couple inches and used a Ranger dash. I'm kinda surprised how well that engine fits under the hood, and that there is a mechanical fan and radiator in place, and the trans shifter ends up in the right spot. Really a great start to what COULD be a cool build, minus all the hack.
