Re: and now for something completely different

Saw that. Guessing someone got a new welder as a gift last Christmas. That has to weigh as much as the original car it was crafted from. Never cease to be amazed at how much time and energy and money folks with absolutely no design or engineering skill will throw at a project. Wonder what the next dream vehicle will look like...

It was weighed at the Recycling Center to be right around 2100 pounds Original Grand Prix weighed around 3400 pounds

There are soooo many things that are wrong with this 'custom build.'

I am with Bubba on this one... waste of time and resources.

Say what you will but its not a bad toy for under $3k. Maybe the thing it needs most is fenders, esp. on the fronts. I bet that's a monster going up hills with all that torque and low weight.

Put some sticky tires on it and run it in local SCCA. Thing would be a blast.

Won't be the fastest, or the prettiest, but sure is different.

It's cool to do your own thing and to me it's only a waste of time if you didn't learn anything doing a project but the fact it was a completed project is impressive ... Starting projects are easy to tear shit apart but actually finishing one or at least getting to a near completion and can be used as a toy again is a success in my book even if it's not practical as intended !
