It's better than many of the  "outlandish" things I have seen  on this forum. Swap in a more street usable  engine , put a hood on it. And perhaps some more conventional sized wheels, 15" or even 16". And In my opinion it would be decent.

Two more up front and he would have had the elusive "Octo"

I think I will let Bernie and Ron fight it out over this one and take a pass.  No neighbors I want to piss off that badly... 😁

Where is "Flat top" ?

I think he used a 59-60 Buick back window.

And stole a sketch from Harley Earl's water closet.

When I read the article I was astonished to read that the owner spent over $200,000.00 building it. Definitely more money than brains. Think of the car that sort of cost could fund. You just have to shake your head and wonder.

Do people who drive cars like that even have friends?

I would be proud to have anybody see me driving that!   My wife saw the picture and said "That's Cool !!!!"

Then again, this was my first car.  A custom build as well.

I would drive that. But I'm a bit of a weirdo to begin with, so I may not be the best person to go by. 

I'd have to get better wheels though. I don't like anything over 15 inch wheels on 40s through 90s cars.

NP driving but would hate to try to park it. Hope it has a backup camera.

Can you tell us more about this? What sort of chassis and drivetrain?
