Your Projects: Making a VW Ute

How do you improve an aging VW Jetta? Cut the back off. Forum member White_and_Nerdy landed a 2003 Volkswagen Jetta with some body damage. After removing the back portion of the roof, they installed a pickup bed. The result: one awesome sports ute.

I haven't seen one in a few months, but there were a few Minis converted into pickup trucks for use as Red Bull promotional vehicles.

There was a time, before they disappeared, that the Ford Escort wagons would have made a good candidate for this type of conversion.
