    Not being nitpicky....
    (because I love ALL Stude's...including the rods, customs, and wierd ones)...

    I especially like 'good work'...
    Having said that....
    Why-o-why would someone jam a fuel cell into the trunk and make it so you almost have to climb in on top of all the stereo amplifier electrical junk to put gas in the tank??.....duhhhhh.
    And if you are going to put an M2 front suspension, and a coil over rear end in the car....get the tires and wheels in the right place in the wheelwells.
    I'll stop there[}]

            Nice car, nice workmanship, but I'd would think the incorrect wheel placement would have been obvious to the installer...

                        Greetings, All,

                        As mentioned earlier, this one has a few questionable features in the build. Many possibilities, but have seen this scenario too often when a just-completed car comes up for sale:

                        A boomer with a few bucks finally gets around to building his dream rod; gives a local builder a bunch of money and not enough direction. The car is completed, but doesn't look like, nor drive like a new Beemer. (Opinions here - monochromatic on older cars was a bad trend twenty years ago. Pro-street with coil-overs astraddle the center section is not my thing to drive in the real world - usually only good in a straight line.) Boomer is disenchanted and sells for fifty cents on his dollar invested.

                        thnx, jv.

                            Jack,

                            I don't have much to say about this kind of Pseudo-Car. And the reason is that I've never built or driven one to any extent. But your proposed scenario is one I've often brought to mind when seeing things like this coupe. [8D]
