    & Still manages to look better than a Mustang II - always thought side louvers on my car would look good...maybe not.

    Just hopped on my computer to have a better look at this..i actually like the headlights..and the louvers look cheap like the hood scoops from wal-mart that are "carbon fibre" the car really has some good points but with my taste has more bad than good..maybe someone will enjoy it fully with it being what it is.

    dont the side window louvers usually have the vent holes to the rear?

    the wheels..... to go through all that body work trouble and put cheap ass wheels on.

    most things done to that car almost work... but dont.

    i know our cars arent exactly the most sought after, but this almost hurts to look at.

    maybe it was an exercise in bodywork?

    I like the front end look, I don't know why but I kinda like it, a little more modern look to it.

    The louvers need to go and it has the wrong wheels and stance/height. Little excessive on the stripes.. Not going back to see what else :rolleyes:
    Oh, the seats are like mine but different material..

    At least it's a one of a kind. I wouldn't mind having it just to be different. I like different....

    I don't like it, but I do applaud the effort. Someone was thinking outside the box. Sometimes you try and hit a grand slam, other times (like this one) you strike out.
