      I like it a lot, but if it were mine, I would definitely change out that rear hatch for a stock one and I'd put on a golf ball shift knob.

      Yeah looks clean but that rear hatch is hideous.

      This, too. And black out your mounting screws for the headlights and turn signals in the bumper

      How do you open the hatch? And I like the car, but I would set it a little closer to the ground if it were mine.

      Ladysmith. It's about an hour north of Eau Claire. I'm going to take a wild guess and say you're from Milwaukee?

      car is super nice, remember seeing it on here in the past. take good care of it. I personally think the hatch is unique. Wheels arent my style but very clean car none the less.

      goodluck

      Looks like a clean car. Maybe smaller wheels and tires?? Looks like a rabbit on steroids.
      I even like the hatch.
