    Anyone have any interest in mkiv converted to pickup?

    I ran across a place that sells pickup conversions for sedan and golfs. I was wondering if there is any interest in these? I was thinking I could start swapping these and selling them. I though maybe a 2.0l gas would be around 7500. And a TDI around 10k? Thoughts?
