I think it's awesome, except that it should have a hot tub in the back. Filled with German beer.

Who is Al Camino. Is he a mafia boss or something? Surely is a retarded "build". LOL at $10k price.

There are so many custom vehicles out there where you wonder, where do you draw the line? Should I appreciate the amount of creativity and craftsmanship? Or should I say, WTF were you thinking, that's hideous? Everybody has different tastes. In case you guys didn't notice, we as miata souper uppers are underdogs. I still think that guys porsche is hideous and I would never drive it. I even think that the 928 is ugly in original form. Even the 944 doesn't do it for me. So yeah, this guy is asking way to much for this thing, and he'll never get it. It's like I always say, "

dude, look at it this way. he SAVED that 928 from the crusher. i'm sure that was a totalled, rear end crashed car. otherwise, why would someone do that? that was the shittiest of all the 928's anyways. there's one of those parked in a garage where the door and part of the roof (of the garage) has caved in on top of it. has been like that for a while.

Oh, c'mon. Tell me this isn't awesome:






I saw a real-life variant of this many years ago. Fellow took a third-gen Camaro that has been rear-ended and grafted the bed of a used-up S10 onto it. Actually came out pretty well.

Saw pictures of something even crazier in a VW magazine. The front 2/3rds of some common WCVW (Rabbit, Scirocco, something like that) with the back half of a Type 3 attached. What made the setup really interesting was that he kept both drivetrains fully intact, and connected them both to the same throttle and clutch pedals. (The shifters were still separate.) So he had the option of cruising on just one engine or the other, or firing both of them up.

Horribly impractical, but it was nifty.
