    I like seeing the custom fabricated parts, braces and brackets rather than open the cardboard box and bolt on.

    The only good looking in that ride was the playmates that might have rode in it. The vehicle has NO TASTE AT ALL.

    Your car looks sharp. Nice pulling one off the trailer and not need anything done and be able to cruise. It has a nice blend of new and vintage, sharp stance.
