    Does anyone else find it strange that there is no reserve on this car?

          I think it's pretty cool, and I'd like to have it! There's a few things I'd change to my taste, but I like it overall.

          I do wish it had been built on a different base car, though.

          As for title: In NY it would register as an 84 Ford. If there's no VIN tag, one can be state-issued and a title issued as "homemade"; so it would be a "2008 HOMEM".

          I always laugh at the bandwagon effect on these things[)] There's a TON of planning, work, and fabrication in this, and most of it looks like quality work!

          I'd have fun driving it while I tinker with some of the details to my taste. And maybe I could become a pimp to finance the changes

          Really, I don't see it as a classic-type artistic exercise like a Delahaye, but just a car born to be outrageous and provocative. From that perspective, it definitely succeeds![:0][8D]

                      I agree. Still would like to mess with it a while
