Owners of Spacecabs are a special breed, as Johnathon proves. Not only will they go all out to build their trucks, they'll even do it twice, as was the case here. So what's next for the truck? Chances are pretty good that Johnathon will sell the Isuzu to someone, that way he can move on to another project. But one day, he'll be sitting in front of the television when he remembers The Scab and all it's meant to him. That will be the day that he does some research, finds the new owner and gives him some cash so he can have his Isuzu back.

And we'll be looking forward to see what he does with it the third time around.
