Typically the high profile custom rides at the SEMA Show come from major automakers and tuning houses. But sometimes individual tuners cut through the clutter with a standout project, like this 1974 Datsun pickup modified by Dominic Le.

As you can plainly see, Le's pickup is anything but stock. It has the front end of a classic Skyline, a suspension dropped by a good eight inches, a bored-out engine with a turbo bolted on, a spiffed-up bay ... the works. It even has mirrors mounted all JDM-style way out on the front of the hood, a right-hand drive setup, fat Toyo tires, and Takata racing harnesses, all for authenticity's sake.

It's more impressive when you consider that Le is a family man with a day job and did this with a buddy in their spare time. But don't take our word for it: check it out and hear the story in the 17-minute video above from Jay Leno's Garage.
