      Apparently, Porsche has the best locking system for their front trunk. No worries about thieves breaking in.

      I suppose with a razor blade scraper you could remove the paint from the windows and taillights and continue to use it as a track rat that it was prior to being painted.

      I'd buy it for $500 bucks to run in 24 hours of lemons with that paint job...

      Hope your a good mechanic/surgeon, because apparently this thing needs a brain

      And they seem to think that by painting it they have increased the value as they are asking $4200. Not going to let it go for $500.

      It was a parts car before it was graffiti'd. Not much to ruin.

      I'm curious how it came to be in that state. Gutted and painted interior, no dash, no roll cage...

      Let's be honest.
      The car hadn't look that good in probably decades.
      Nobody guts an interior and allows a local personality to paint the car (including glass) in a graffito if it looked good already.

      The graffiti paint scheme has become a bit of a thing around LA. I see fairly new cars done this way, and they don't look like they were beaters before the paint. Just after.

      Who needs an engine hoist if you have two women and a cat to help you pull an engine out of a car? (skip to 8:07)

      Fortunately the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act protects them from having their warranty voided for simple mods.
