function + efficiency

I try to get out on the mtb trails a few times a week during lunch. I pass a pretty rural area on the way. On the way back today I saw this thing. I was quite surprised to see a farmer with this.

I thought it was cool to see how he transformed an efficient vehicle to meet his needs around the farm. I had to turn around for a picture.

I’ve seen guys do that on Ford Festivas, hack off the back and make them into mini 50mpg pickups.
