Lots of chrome! But don't you think these look better than those "Super C's" or what I call Class C's on steroids? Looks like they hit the semi truck chrome shops! And looks far better than the homogenous manufactured RV's! SHINY! (really)

The red one in the second picture almost looks like an International. Or at least the grill badge does.

Re: skoolies in central America

lol right... forgot about the whole body vs chassis builder thing.... now that you mention it... the last guy is even sporting the bird on the hood. Custom!

speaking of chassis... how would I figure out who built the chassis under our BB?

Re: skoolies in central America

i like dayton wheels far better than the stud pilot's.. they are my favorite for changing...
