    The 2"-3" misplacement of the body makes me wonder what else is gakked up on that car - which is unfortunate since it appears that a fair amount of work went into that project. It will be a time consuming or expensive fix, I wouldn't expect that any pro shop would have let it go out the door that way.

    My guess is the seller "coolrides4u" is a Las Vegas broker or consignment house. Maybe the owner had a bad run of luck at the tables at just the wrong time.

    thnx, jv.

    Probably less than 50 cents on the dollar. From the pics I'm seeing tons of bondo in those wavy sides-not to cut the car down now,maybe he likes it that way.

    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]

    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.

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