Why would someone do that, I don't think it was as permanent changes to the tractor as it was to the truck. Makes me sad LOL

Reminds me of an old saying, "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should". However i do like the second one, it looks usable and reminds me of this-- Forest rover from the 60's.

The 2nd one doesn't come off as strange at all to me, and as said, useable!

It might have been actually a bit practical if he only installed the cab part. Sit inside in any weather and crank up the heater and the tunes, etc. But that front end is just wrong. No, weird. But it does get a lot of attention I bet. Major waste of time and talent.
