    It's important to note the creator's attention to detail -- he took the time to make sure that everything was done poorly.

    He’s talented! He achieved every bit as much fubartastic ugliness as the GP roadster guy for a fraction of the investment.

    Wow just mad levels of top tier pop-riveting goodness in this one. At first I thought it might be his 24 Hours of Lemons car, but then noticed it doesn't have a cage.

    I like the fingernail trimmer! (the sharp dash edge; when ya stick a finger in the wheel to spin it, BAMM!) Comes with a tetanus shot card good anywhere LOL...

    Nice O ring with a staple water pump drive belt-"universal". Tin cans with duct tape making the gas filler neck too?

    What was this thing originally? A 280Z??? ws

    Pretty sure the fluorescent green paint on the pulleys adds 2hp and 3.7 ft-lbs at the top end, easily shaves off .1 seconds on the 1/4 mile...

    Interesting, there are different motivations for these vehicles.

    The Belair clearly is I got this wrecked car for free. But I'm not going to pay all kinds of money to fix it up. Hell I can get sheet metal for next to nothing. A bit of elbow grease and vwala a functional and street legal tow vehicle.

    The GP guy has an artistic side. He had a vision he wanted to bring to life. You can see what he was trying to do. Unfortunately he has zero finishing skills. Maybe less than zero. Give him credit for trying, but he shouldn't quit his day job.

    The Ranchero guy just thinks he's artistic (he's not). Not sure how to classify this one. Even the GP guy had enough sense not to have over-spray on everything.
