i really wonder why you would raise the height of the rear but leave the seating the same? what was the point? all my rear passengers refuse to take off their sombreros and 10 gallon hats, so ill just have to raise the roof in the back - yeah that makes sense.

Maybe you're thinking of the show Chasing Classic Cars? That was F40 Motorsports, also in CT.

That's a few minutes away from my house. Maybe I'll stop by and gawk at it on my way home from work.
Weird.

If I recall correctly, the truck was used by a Grand Canyon tour company. But that is a very fuzzy memory and it is somewhere in the archives.

Drove by the Popemobile the other day. Parked right out front on Rte 1. If you think it looks strange in pictures, 10x odder in life.
