I never would have guessed you'd say that.


I sometimes get the RV itch. Lately I've been thinking ... if I were to do this in, say 5-10 years, what would be a good candidate to mod? And I keep coming back to a 5-speed Mazda 5. Cut out the rooftop, make it a pop-top...

You've got to let us know what this thing sells for.
Honda mods: Ecomodding my $800 Honda Fit 5-speed beater
Mitsu mods: Oops, I did it again! Bought another cheap, 3-cylinder Mirage. Mods in progress...
