Interesting. Is that a Nissan or maybe an early HiLux? I sadly didn't take this, but while on the subject of tugs, look closer at this http://www.airliners.net/open.file/0902385/L/
I used to know two others but after a long search I can't find them again, but I did find this http://www.airliners.net/open.file?id=0706480&size=L read the text! Look for it at airshows down there!

The first one is neat. If it's front wheel drive, then go with what works! :D :D

The second one is a horrible thing to do to a DC3.  >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

The pick-up/off-roader was probably 4x4 and had the rear driveshafts removed together with most of the body.
The conversion on the DC-3 itself is great work, but I agree it would be nicest to have it in the original shape, even if no longer flying.
