Chevy Stepside - Jon Baker's Pickup CHiPs

I hope Matchbox decides to do a metallic blue version, or maybe even a jacked-up version just by changing the plastic base...

here's a cool site with Jon Baker's pickup from CHiPs... 73 Stepside??

I liked Hooper, and one of the parts that always got me was driving backwards at speed, like the pic's from the link. One day watching it for the umpteenth time I noticed that the front pumkin was centered and not towards the pasanger side like it should of been! Some detective work with the VCR and wall-la! Rear axle in the front, front (steering) axle in the rear and there you go, 85 mph backwards and no wobble, no violent side to side maneuvers and Hooper does it again! Must of been someone in the bed driving I guess. Untill you see it you just suspect whats going on untill the light bulb goes on in your head and then it all become pretty obvious.
