[QUOTE=Niapym]Very strange, isn't it? Any idea why anyone would do that?


Think about where that truck might have come from.

To some of us, a panel truck is way cooler than a surburban.
None of the bikers or guys that worked the trades that I knew wanted windows in their panels or vans.

You didn't want anyone looking inside and seeing your tools or scoot and you didnt want to bust a window out from the inside tossing job materials into the truck.

Also when you were using your cool panel truck for recreational purposes, you didn't want the fuzz looking inside.

When I was a carpet installer I worked with a guy with a 49 chevy panel truck. It was a COOL work truck! I had a 63 econoline van. No windows.

Later, mikey

my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example

I personally like the panels as apposed to the windows. Definitely makes sense for a work truck, and it does have some storage compartments installed inside.

My first thought was that it was an ambulance or police vehicle, with the hole for the light & the jump seat. I've been told the ambulances had longer bodies, were these used by law enforcement?

home brew, that site is amazing. thanks for posting it.
