I wonder which one would have a harder time crossing the Continental Divide...

crumpet point can be up to 12'00 feet...it''s a really huge tow and can be 10 to 15mph...just don't be in hurry(won't do any good), and prepare yourself for the fingered signs you used to use when you were young and caught behind...far as I'm concerned, I'm in front...m

Diesel Chassis

Has anyone considered changing the complete chassis on a Classic?
Here is a turbo diesel Nissan cheap.
You will have to do your own research on this. I just thought it might be a good discusssion subject.

I see these trucks alot around my area, and always have thought about pulling the P-30 chassis and putting one of these underneath. Doubt it would be that simple though, especially steering and such. Wonder what the wheelbase on this is? As well, what size motor? Sure it's diesel, turbo perhaps?
Thanks, Derek
