    Not a cruiser, but I'm always impressed with what this shop produces, and they have done a handful of Cruiser projects in the past.

    nope, I believe those are Volvos....both are becoming popular, with the Volvos a bit narrower and easier to find. Parts for either is a PITA tho.

    for now, I'll just keep drooling...

    Actually, I think it is the Volvos that have become unobtanium. My question: did any of the people running Volvos buy a spare for parts? Not like you can go to a dealer when you kill the birfs or center section in a Volvo axle. They are sweet though. :D

    Yes those are definetly Volvo portals. Umimog 404 versions look like these (going under my tube rig with cruiser hood):

    And from what I hear the Volvos are as rusty said, becoming "unobtanium".  The MOGs are definety more obtainable, and parts are much easier to find.  They actually had Unimogs on North American.  Volvo C303s are a Euro thing.
