There is nothing I wanted more than a pink double cab 3-wheel pickup truck with searchlights on the roof. Many years I dreamed and searched, but my quest has finally come to a very happy end. This little beauty is the Xuzhou Suding four-door electric tricycle. It doesn’t really have but it doesn’t really need one; it has searchlights on the roof, three of ‘m, and they are big!

The once brilliant Dalian Classic Car Museum has been closed. The private owner is in prison for killing his brother and won’t get out anymore. The collection has been removed from the museum’s buildings and the cars are being sold off. It seems very unlikely the collection will ever come together again. Time thus for a look-back at how things once were when all was good and happy. Today we look at the beautiful Shanghai SH1020 SP, a double-cab pickup truck based on the Shanghai SH7221 sedan.

This little beauty is the cheapest pickup truck in China. It is called the Dongfeng Xiaokang K01. It costs 25,900 yuan or $3,929. For that money you get a very basic vehicle that can carry two passengers plus a 1770 kilo load. Mini pickup trucks like the K01 are widely used for a wide variety of work. They are bought by transport companies, construction companies, and often double as a mobile market stall.
