Default New Guy Here

Greetings:
Didn't see a place for intro's so I thought I'd post one here.

Just recently picked up an 05 Vert so I thought I'd check out the board.

I've been a long time car builder mostly old HotRods n Kustoms, but just thought I'd try a PT. Been on the HAMB for a few years, so I hope I've learned the proper B-Board ettiquette.

I have an Idea that may seem odd, but has anyone built a Pickup out of a vert? I specifically bought a vert for this due to the door length.
I've done a photo-shop of it and think it looks pretty good. But before I got started, I figured I'd talk to a few folks and see if it's been done before,
and the lessons learned from doing it.

LemmeNo what you guys think,

Thanks,
Craig

The last, the 5-window coupe, is just plain UGLY.
It looks frumpy from the rear.

Thanks for the welcome, and glad I'm not the only one.
My plans are to make the top a 1 piece lift off. Should look pretty similar to the concept, or third one, with the exception of the nose treatment.

Welcome !!! I too am into old hotrods. The PT seem to be great cars, I just bought my 2nd PT, this time a convertible. I've had really good luck and almost zero problems with mine. Enjoy!! Post pictures of your progress.

Definitely be looking forward to seeing your progress!

The old hot rods were the inspiration for my buying a PT. I've always loved the look of the old 32-33 and 37 Ford roadsters. My Mom bought her PT back in 2002 and while I thought it was kinda cool, it wasnt until the vert came along and really snagged my eye. To me the two door vert just smacks of the old roadsters in a big way...and since I'l probably never be able to afford to build a classic rod, this seemed like as close as I'll ever get to one. Plus the turbo is just a hoot to drive

Funny you should mention the 37. That's one of the cars I have, and the overall look I'm going for. I always felt the PT was real close to the 37 Slant back.

Here is a picture of my 37.
I plan on using at least the flames and wheels on the PT PU.
If I can find some metal fenders, I may do the headlights as well.
Hope I'm not stepping on any toes with the off topic photo.

Here is what I mean by the similarity between a 37ford and a PT.
