wow.... I dont know what is more terrifying... the fact that they are liking it at m.net, or the build itself.

It is kinda funny. It's like saying a kid with no arms and legs on a soccer field has great ball control because he/she can get it to move. It's great to make the best of what you have, but it doesn't mean it's good. It's more of a "Good for you"

I can't see the pic for some reason but I actually debated finding a roof off of something like an opel GT or some other car that had the right contours, cutting it down and welding it in as a true coupe like the NB coupes.

In the end, the V8 build has been delayed enough and this would have added another year.

Lol at "are you going for 30s/40s look?" comments.

I'm pretty sure he was going for a water proof look.

I actually like it too. It's not the greatest but with limited funds and resources, it's not bad. It will be better than getting wet. If he's going through all of that I seriously doubt he cares how much it weighs.

The m.net pansies can't wrap their minds around someone doing something for reasons other than "STYLE/LOOK/THEME"

Yeah, I'm inclined to agree. Growing up in Miami the third world, you see all kinds of ****.

Impressive given the limited resources. Banana leaves may have been faster.

This made me LOL. They just 'find' cars in the bush?

Hey, it's a practical mod. Sure it's done on the cheap, but any asshat can just go buy stuff. Making things takes talent, even if it isn't as perfect as some would hope.

Would you rather see the guy doing the hellaflush crap instead?
