I'm not sure I can support using a Ranchero this way.

    When he gets older he can put that on his real Ranchero.

    That would make a nice trailer to pull behind a Boss Hoss.

    The bed of the older Ranchero's are useless for hauling lumber, etc., so he at least found something that fits in one.

    Well as he gets older they can drop the tailgate and put in a longer mattress, what a waste of a 64/65 ass end.

    We didn't see the front end. It may have been pancaked. Better to let it live on in the heart of a future enthusiast than rot in a boneyard.

    That's 6800 Ranchero bucks for a kids bed. Seems you could buy a running driving round body for that much.

    Ranchero bucks. I wish there was such a thing. I also wish I had a bed like that. Waste or not, that's pretty freakin' cool.

    Well that makes me feel better about him not using the smuggler's box to hide his stash and pulling the gas cap to huff in the middle of the night.

    The road to perdition starts with a small step.
    Best to avoid presenting temptations.

    But you could cut the lumber down to fit inside, like Toyota does in their commercials.

    Or buy it already cut to size like a professional would.

    A professional plumber, maybe. A professional carpenter wouldn't own a truck with a 5' bed, nor would they get their lumber pre-cut. That'd be like you getting a prefabbed wiring harness for a home. Hell, maybe you do? They even exist?

    Maybe the yards in C'ville are just hardware stores that don't have a saw, but in the more modern parts of the country we do things a bit differently.
    About the only saw cutting that takes place on a framing job is for doorways, plates at corners, and blocking. Everything else, including the roof framing, is cut to size at the lumber yard, even the standard sized blocks.
    As to prefabbed wiring harnesses, they are used in prefabbed housing modules and are used extensively in commercial electrical (large office buildings etc...)
    The 19th century is long gone Sean. It's a wild new world out there, you really should check it out.:)

    ......aaaaand off we go to Cuba again.

    Who cares? I haul stuff in the back of my Ranchero all the time. Its the only truck I have but I am a homeowner and a professional retiree and need a vehicle that can haul stuff. Looks to me like beerbelly hauls stuff as well. I suspect both beerbelly and I are different than your normal old car owners. He is driving his a long distance for a reunion, hauling plywood, etc. I drive mine as much as I can as my daily driver and am getting it set up to pull my boat once I finish restoring the boat. My primary fishing vehicle as it were that doubles as a car show entry. Lots of old car enthusiasts I know look at their cars in the garage, then drive them to the car show only to park them back in the garage. That's all well and good, but not my style. Cars were built to be driven and enjoyed.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't most framing jobs begin by delivery of the necessary lumber by the lumber company to the job site? Like a roofing job gets the shingles delivered, its normally done that way, right? I cannot see the Super hauling lumber in any sized pickup unless he was framing a dog house.

    You hijackers crack me up. I'm beginning to think you argue only for the sake of the argument, based on who made the statement.

    Bottom line: Ranchero bed is cool. Wish I had one as a kid.
