Possible NG900 el camino project

Well before my dad died we had a plan to turn a ng900 into a el camino. Now that I have this white NG900 sitting around I think it may be my next project after the vert is done. So what do you guys think? Yes or no?

I believe that I've read more than one post from you about your problems with money and money management. I'd part the car and make the money. From there, you can do any number of things with it, including fixing/swapping your 'vert.

yea, I voted to do the project.. Which I still think is a good idea, but if money or time is lacking wait for a year or two and do it then.

ill have to find the picture of the c900 "el saabo" we made in high school now.

2nd that, unless you need a small truck for something right now I'd finish the vert and part the other.

In a few years you'll be able to buy yourself another 900 to chop-up if you still have the urge.

Here's the thing, if you turned it into an el-saabino and then put a cap on it, you'd be back where you started from.

You're in school, you have another big project on your hands - part it out for the cash.

There are a ton of ng900's out there, and they're not going anywhere. If anything they're going to get cheaper over time.

It's an interesting idea for a few years from now. No need to hold onto an empty shell for all that time.

Part it out.
