    My girl and i are in the process of buying a home in Florida and relocating from NY and the money from the car would help with moving expenses and other things....Problem is i have no idea what it's worth and no clue what to set the reserve at.....I know there's a limited market for it considering the way i built it.....I have a number in my head but i could be way off....I'd be curious what you guys would set the reserve at if it were you

    I like it, the more detailed the ad the better. I would agree with others that around $20k would be a good place to set a reserve. I am sure you have more than that in there. Awesome car for sure, if I was in the market for that type of car I would find it very appealing.

    Good luck.

    Not street legal in most states. I see no mufflers at all on this thing.

    I bet it sounds pretty nice, though!

    What makes you think it doesn't have mufflers? I haven't seen any under carriage shots of the car posted?
