What the ---- were they thinking with that shifter, it looks nearly undrivable. Do not want.

Ironically, Firefox says "undrivable" isn't in it's dictionary. It's suggesting unlivable, undeliverable, unsurvivable, and undrinkable. Fitting.

I've seen a lot of Factory Five Cobras with superchargers. I like how this one simply ***** all of over those.

This one showed up at an autocross or two locally, never found out what he put to the ground though:

There's a Point where the traction vs hp gets dangerous. I wouldn't want to be next to this guy in a roll race. Hope he can drive.

Why does it look like they welded the hot-parts with the wrong filler rod? I also like the lack of a turbo crane...that should do wonderfully on the trailer and dyno.
