    Here's a story:

    One time this guy built a really fugly custom, drove it once, became the joke of the neighborhood, and it's been sitting in the side yard ever since.

    The end.

    Rad. I'd drive it. Absolutely. How can you go wrong with a big ass single fin like that in the rear?

    I wondered what ever happened to SPANK!/Harlan. Guess he's doing more custom work now.

    Cut the weirdass grill extension thingy down so the grill meets up with the hood cut off the fin and fab up two new ones one for each side and it wouldn't look two bad.

    then paint it flat black and call it a rat rod :D

  23. Ya know, every once in a while somebody posts a car that they don't agree with.

    All about fitting in with the peer group I guess.

    Regardless of whether you like the car or not, you gotta give the guy credit for seeing the project through to completion.

    Which is a lot more than you can say about some people on this board....

    There was already a big post on this car a while back. This thread reads just like that thread. If I recall right, it was never a show car or anything... just somebody's project.
     
  25. all that talent with a torch and hammer , and absolutely zero sense of style! Even if it was any other color it would still be REALLY ugly! But it reminds me of that Johny Cash song about "one piece at a time,and it didnt cost me a dime"

    Interesting is all that comes to mind. Something like that should not be allowed to see the light of day. It is now your responsibility to hide so you don't give any of the little ones nightmares.
