It's not a truck conversion, it's a Eagle Bus Conversion, boooo---hissss----

Now the good points, it does have a Honda Civic that's been modified to fit in the belly of the storage bays... Sort of cool.

I'd like to see a Truck Conversion with one them thar new Mini Coopers in the belly or in the rear.

Here is the ad, Comments?

That's not a Civic, but one of the first Honda cars that were imported with 2-cyl 600cc air-cooled engines. Pretty cool, the way it's been shortened and decapitated. I'm waiting for someone to find a way to carry a Lotus 7 underneath their rig......

That's what I'm working on- so far I've only...
bought the new Mini. No way it fits in like that Honda, the Mini is 11' 11" in length and 95% of that is critical to the little car. I have several concerns and lurk about this site finding answers all the time. One issue not addressed is how its going to feel getting out from behind the wheel of the truck conversion and crawling into the Mini
