Do you remember the Dodge D50? No? Well, honestly, I don’t really remember it either. Released in the height of the minitruckin’ era they are very similar in size and shape to the Mazda B2200 or Nissan hard body.
Being so similar to those imports, one would assume they have an equal following, but this doesn’t seem to be the case. In fact I’d say they have little following at all (sorry D50 fans)
I’d never really thought about doing a Theme Tuesday dedicated to the D50 but that all changed when hot rod artist Chris Pisctielli sent me the truck below.
This truck quickly sent me hunting for more like it and, unfortunately, they are not the easiest vehicle to find modified examples of.
Especially today after Photobucket nuked so many photos from aging forums.
Enter the Mighty Max
When I uncovered that the D50 was actually a re-badged Mitsubishi the search for cooler examples became a bit easier.
