Really? Hillbilly Seriously ???

So, it would have been better to make a crap (rat) rod out of it instead???
He used good taste building the bar/grill, and didn't butcher the truck doing it that I can see. I think it's cool.

No more of a shame than some city-slicker chopping, subbing, slamming, and c&#%y-ing it.

It's his, to do with it what he will.
It apparently works for him, we all utilize our cars and trucks for the benefit of ourselves.

Actually, if people are a little open minded, looking closely at the truck one can note that the truck has not been modified that much..
The truck would make a good center piece for a BBQ rally of Early Ford cars..

I agree. That is awesome and seems reversible. I would love to have that F-1 grill at my spot at Hershey. It would sure turn some heads.

I guess you missed it. Sometime in 2002 or 2003 Congress passed a law allowing cowboys to purchase footwear not depicted in children's picture books. Dan Post and Justin lost their court challenge.

Gotta say the guy is using an old commercial vehicle as part of a business....isn't that what they were built for?

That is really not too bad. If he saved the seats, engine, etc., it could be put back.
I've seen a lot worse restored.

Very creative. I would have done all similar mods but left the truck running so it could be driven to BBQ meets.

Some of you guys would bitch if they hung you with a new rope.

If it were me, I would agree with Pete, leave the underhood grille out of it, put a single bucket in it and use it to drive to tailgate parties and outtings. It would have been much cooler to have it a driveable mobile BBQ rig. Put a flathead in it that runs on multi fuel and fuel it with pig fat from the grill..

I like it, and he really hasn't hurt it any. He has assured it will be cared for until some new owner takes custody. I'd love to find a nice genny truck like that, but it doesn't bother me a bit.
