Don't care what anyone says I would paint that some sort of sexy hot rod red colour and rock the shit out of that.

Good heavens, that's bonkers. Messer is german for knife. That looks seriously dangerous.
Upgrade your grey matter 'cause one day it may matter.

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...

I should hate it. But I just can't.
It reminds me a lot of the internal bowls in our 15k rpm centrifuges at work.
They look like 40lbs each.

If the faces were machined silver and you posted that picture,
my question would be why don't you like it?

I mean the wheel set up doesn't make any sense at all but then again nor does a lot of the stuff I see out here in Alberta on Porsches.

Dare I say, those wheels make it look more Bugatti ish?

So this right here I knew from the start would be destined for this thread.

The car

The bay

and he's planning to run this manifold:

The car is referred to as the bruised blueberry.
I want to hate it, but I can't. I want to like it, but I can't.

My faults with it lie in that there are things that are painted that perhaps could have been masked/removed. More of an execution thing that could have made it nicer. Will be interesting to see the end result.

As far as "no f***s were given" is concerned, bravo.

I think I'm closer to hate than love but I agree, it's not really eliciting much emotion either way. Just kind of feels like a waste of time and money...

From the outside it's simple and clean.

All that matte fluorescent blue bay paint makes me think someone's chalkline tool got destroyed by the cooling fans and blew up all over the bay. No thanks.

Looks like it.

Guess he's going to drive hood-less in ATL as I don't think the manifold clears the hood.

Could always stack mad spacers on the hinges, tho.
