    It's actually not bad looking for what it is. Sort of reminds me of a TVR sports car from the early '70's.

            $25,000.00? Is that what they're paying you for taking it of their hands?

              Does it still have back seat, a spare tire, a bumper jack? Ok, it wouldn't be any use, without bumpers! An 18 gallon gas tank? What chassis is used and what's its wheel base?

                Shades of Mr. Lowey's many near misses?

                  I see both MGB-GT and 1959-60 Continental design influences in this kustom, as well as others. Is this simply an alphabet soup of design cues with little in the way of rhyme or reason? At least the workmanship appears to be well done.

                      Whether you like the looks of it or not, it is interesting to compare it with this one - which do you think is more attractive?

                        Definitely the yellow one! I don't particularly care for the hood scoop, the way it's tacked on, or the styling of the headlights grafted on, even if they are aerodynamicly superior, but it still doesn't seem near as severely mutelated as the one originally referred to in this thread.

                          It is cute, but I don't care for the front end treatment. It might be fun to drive and would certainly get looks.

                              I didn't even notice that, interestingly amusing speculation! Maybe she's not just trying to styfull a sneeze?
