      Yes, yes they did. I have a set of sockets I got with my new Hellas that I didn't need. Anyone?

      If not for the illegality, this car would be set off by a built-in water pipe, optimally, one made from improvised parts.

      Everyone might not agree with it, but in my opinion it is cool because it is against the grain. It's not like anyone elses. Think of a stanced out mk 4 golf on bbs rs... Everyone and their mother has one. This one is like no other. You will not find another like it.

      Plus, like he said before, everything works. Despite what it looks like.

      The answer to your question is "to each his own".

      Some folks say they don't understand, but have to keep checking in on the latest photos....

      Keep up the good work.

      For one, I've now learned of street signs as a good, inexpensive source of heavy gauge sheet metal.

      While I love seeing a nice MKIV or MKI fixed up clean, There is typically no creativity. Theyre fun to look at for a minute then I dont care anymore. This guys car is awesome because he has a "who gives ****" attitude and is just doin him. Id spend longer looking at 2 cars like this at a show than a whole row of carbon copy VWs on BBS's

      I agree with to each his own.

      However, the car didn't look bad to start with. At least could've done it to a car that was almost worthless to begin with. This is my two cents.

      I'm all for creativity but...I'd much rather see a car at least one color (flat, matte, or gloss) and good wheel fitment without rubber bands for tires. I am not a fan of slammed poked stretched BBS either, **** the nutswingers.

      Enough with my opinion, have fun.

      Aaaaaah, but it wouldn't be nearly as impressive if this was all done to a Sunfire!

      I hate everything about this car, keep it up! Wish you were closer, I'd pay you for some moar ink to make the build go quicker/easier. Probably some good money to be made fixing what I've already got for starters.
