Yeah, unfortunately I have seen them Laughing . There's a guy in my town that has had one for about 18 years now, and I see him a few times a year.

They pop up in the samba classified frequently, though i don't see any on there right now.

This guy had one. In fact he had both ends. He may still have them. The guy can be a bit grumpy sometimes.

I haven't seen one in real life, but I know that JC Whitney used to sell something like them in the 70s.

Don't really like them myself, BUT....

at least if it is done, it can be undone very simply. Not as easy to undo some other mods I've seen.
