This sounds like good enough justification to me.

So, what's it going to be? A hatchback or a convertible?

This style pickup




OR

This style pickup?




I am thinking more along the lines of the first one, looks like it will be easy to convert, then I can make it a open back like a chevy avalanche too... maybe a snap in cover for the back.

Damn you...thats my next project! 2 in the same city. Guarantee yours will be done first though. I'm shootin for a late model version of the last pics you have up, trunk spoiler too, no triangle window hole, probably no hatch, roll up tonneau cover for sure, M30 powered unless I find a really cheap, beat up IX.

Let me know when you start makin progress, I'd love to see it.
