        I lusted after every one I saw in the stores. Just from reading this article, I've only now noticed that they're not in the stores anymore! I wonder where the ones from the local stores here turned up...

          Check Craigslist. I've seen two listed recently.

            All the ones that I have ever found had no title. Prices were very good, though.

            I want one, but with a good title.

                    I'd still take one. Even if it was only for yard art.

                      I understand an S10 chassis practically installs itself under these.

                        S-10 too narrow...that's the only awkward thing about it. Full-size frames (newer ones) are too wide. However so much aftermarket stuff is available you can easily "clip" the stock frame. However, I think that someday the ones that got left with the straight-axle may be the coolest...

                            s10 frames are the way to go under these. I have a friend who did an s10 frame under his.... it really did almost fall into the truck.... very low impact mod. As for width - you'd be surprised how close full size 50s trucks are to "mini" trucks of today (dimensionally speaking).
