I don't enjoy the black doors, "13th street bitch!" or the seats.

But i understand the motivation.

I'd rather see all white with a red/black stripe and some race buckets in black w/ white leather (or the opposite)

Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...

On the fence with this one. :roll:

All that work, and the rocker seams are still bent from improper use of a jack. :?

The interior is interesting, although, very 'Frank the Biz' in terms of shaving. Nice and clean, but not a lot of work, other than a shiny coat of paint. I completely agree with Rob with the race buckets. I'll have to add that I never get tired of a stack guage mounted on a minimal steering column.

Does anyone by chance know the manufacturer of the 'roll cage' that is installed?

I think it looks like they had a mkiii jetta around and didn't know when to stop. Who knows, maybe someone thought a four door would look terrific with a spidercage and black doors...

I don't know, the car looks so confused to me. mkiii jetta sleeper? sure. this? not so much.

What's under the hood?

edit: that was negative. The interior is AWESOME. inside something else.

I LOVE stripped out 4 doors with cages. Goes back to my penchant for making practical things impractical- ie 4 door car with no back seat. My dream Honda is a caged 'n' stripped (not this stripped) EK sedan. White of course.

It's the colour of the car. If it was black/red/anything other than silver with colour-matched centers I think it would look 100x better!

Take that CULT! :D

I really like the execution on this. Rather than slapping a 3.5 front end on and throwing the lines to hell, this pulls it off very well!
