Yeah Baby Iron Pigs rule!

It looks like it has the Cowboy convertible option. Got any more pictures?

Looks like a fun trail.
That's what we use to call a Cowboy convertible. Of course back then they used a Blue wrench.

gotcha, i dont know alot of the 55s so i wouldnt be suprised :doh: the trail gets really hairy farther down but neither of us had winches or any recovery so we played it safe:D
This had nothing to do with 55's. Any car that you chopped the top off of was a cowboy convertible. Maybe it was just a So.NV red neck thing, we had a lot of them down in Vegas when I was a kid. One guy I went to school with had a falcon he chopped the top off.

Maybe you could lead a trail run down there sometime?

NICE DUDE!! I would love to have a pig, but I would trash it the first time I hit the trails......maybe one for gettin' the groceries, but I would feel bad settin' the side of one of those on a tree or rock.....even with a chop top!!

We had these up here as well. I had a friend in high school that chopped the roof off of his 4 door Dogde Dart. He started with the "T" top roof, then the Targa roof, and finally when it started peeling up and acting like a parachute. The full cowboy convertible. Now a days if you sneek up on him and look under his collared suit shirt. His neck still shines red!!!!
