Love the baboon nose sticking out of the hood. Why spend so much money on a kickass project and kill it with one terrible decision like that?

seems like a steal for the amount of work that went into it. toss in a couple grand to fix the bodywork/paint, windshield, and new clutch and stuff and it would be a great deal.

agree with the hood cut, i hate hood scoops but even that would look better. reminds me of some kid i knew who had a ms protege and put a big turbo and cut a hole in the hood for the turbo lol

Hmmm... somewhat tempted to drive a few hours and take a look at it.

He did a bad job of putting all the worst parts together and just tossing them at the car. The only thing worth a damn is the 7.5 rear. The PRC radiator is next in line, but its even iffy without being able to properly purge the system. If he'd spent 10 minutes looking at the intake setup, he could have seen that the hood only needed minor trimming and the intake could have been place behind the drivers side headlight where most of us put them. Once you put a lip on the front bumper, you can't see the bottom of the radiator..... But obviously he was too cheap to spend the 150 to throw one on.....

The hood isn't the worst, I like it. The biggest problem is the LS motor. Those things suck. Worst decision ever.

You can get a clean, sorted LS car for like 3-4k more. You'll spend more than that sorting this one out.
