    Too bad it probably won't be street-legal in the USA

    You don't think it can be titled here? If he can answer the title issue I might bid on it. McAllen is no man's land for cars. Between Mexico and TX nothing gets registered everything is cash.

    I think the diesel engine is a problem, as far as emission standards go, which is why no 60 mpg diesel Smart Cars are littering our highways.

    Actually a pretty clean looking rig.

    Did you see the Mercedes seats? New diesel engine. I'd love to own that truck but right now I'm struggling with an untitled boat that I thought i got a great deal on until I discovered what a PIB it is to get untitled stuff registered. i figured the state would love to get something added to the tax roll. WRONG! They are more interested in getting all the unpaid tax from its previous history.

    And I thought this was just a CA thing.

    Try winning something and then registaring in with your state's d.m.v.

    Man, was that a pain.

    I have seen these trucks running around on College campuses for maintenance purposes. I don't know if College's have special permissions with regard to titling vehicles, but these trucks sure seem handy for service related work.

    I followed a trailer of little pickups that looked like that, but when I finally caught up to them, I could see that they were Daihatsu maintenance pickups, not intended for actual road use.

    Nice! Should only take you two or three months to drive up here, and by then
    the RAINS should have hit!:laugh:
