What is it with sitting so low down they can barely see over the dash?

That is how you learn to ''park by sound''. Maybe to lower the centre of gravity, who knows?
I guess that these are pure and simply 'show ponies' so not a concern as it is not always on the road and also becomes a talking point.

I think it is all about what they now call "TUFF." Impractical but "making a statement."
It all started with "Ape Hanger" handlebars on Harley Davidsons.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

And not one comment on the crazy wheel bases that seems to have become a fashion statement in the U.S. on trucks today
I'm sorry I just dont get it, I have asked plenty of times why and no one can even give a hint to a answer

Anyway as long as they are happy thats all that meatters
