That is so obscenely bonkers, I can't help but like it. I feel like it needs a mirror in the back seat covered with gigantic lines of coke.

I dont like the rear over fender/wheel interaction.

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...

Never. Don't want to drive it on a deserted planet, don't want my name associated with it.

NOPE.

Gotta say, I'm with rob on this one.

And yeah something's very off when it gets to the wheels. They need to fill the arches better, they need way more sidewall (smaller wheel) , and a different face. Something mesh but more period correct. Like those flat mesh Enkei racing splits or something.

I particularly love the absurdity of a Porsche being a tribute to a '70s Plymouth

When I share my cars here in the car lounge, it always stirs up controversy - usually more than anywhere else. Hate it or love it, I'm excited for feedback, thoughts, and reactions.

This past weekend, Andrew, Geoff, and I took the truck out to El Mirage to shoot some photos and video, the only way I figured I could do the truck justice.

Neat! I don't mind the powerplant at all. Not sure I would have chosen those wheels, but it's his truck and he seems really tickled about how it turned out.

At least I know my welds will handle the BMW powa :)

Haven't watched the video, but a new powerplant and and old chassis with upgraded suspension sounds super slick. Does he daily it? I would.

The video is just skidding around on the dirt. Looks good in motion too.

He got some pieces for the rear suspension from me. That was almost exactly a year ago.

DW you are the man.
I'm more excited about you having pieces in that thing than the car itself.

I guess that's what happens when you sell things that other people don't, or at least don't advertise as well :)
