Hahahaha "STREET DRIVEN ONLY!!" - this truck was built up by RoverAccessories years ago. I've seen the truck pop up once or twice before. That's a TON of money for that truck. Also, gotta love how he says it's only had one owner (not him) - reminds me of that dude John Votta NAS93.

Axe and asking price aside, that's a pretty nice truck. This thing, on the other hand...

I stumbled across it while at a buddies' hangar. Yes, that's an exhaust pipe routed out of the fuel door.

There's a big fuel cell in the tub, visible in the photo. I'll post a picture of the dash later this evening. It's really special.

I know of a truck set up similarly in the same color but with fewer miles that could be for sale for less than that.
