    Indeed, ride height aside; I actually quite like that tbh.

    This is a good example of a questionable modification because the effort is actually pretty decent for a replica though still awful. Wondered why there were halfway decent replicas of the McLaren F1 and even the 911 GT1 but none of the CLK-GTR.


    If they started with a prototype style chassis like the Superlite SLC and lengthened it it would've came out much better, I still give them a 6/10 for the effort though but a 2/10 for overall appearance as it's not pleasing on the eyes IMO.

    The convertible S-10 is awesome. Paint it bright turquoise, put some rad purple and pink graphics on it, then fill the bed with subwoofer and it would be a proper old school mini truck. Kind of like this:

    Also, I feel like it's a bad omen to put COVID 19 on a Toyota pick up since you can't them and they last forever.

    Assuming he went through and properly mated the cap to the body so it doesn't leak, that 98 is sweet.

    I think that's an Eighty-Eight. But yea, looks well done. From the Upper Peninsula too, a lot of interesting off roaders up there.

    It's somewhat moot since he effectively put a new roof on it and eliminated the only functional difference between the two anyway, but that does have the 98 rear doors (even though they seemingly aren't the original doors it came with), taillamps and the opera lamps on the B-Pillar.


    Since he was chopping a truck cap himself to fit the car body it probably didn't make any difference which one of the two he started with, FWIW. Just cut where it intersects the rear door at a different angle.

    Oh yeah, it definitely does. Maybe he got inspired by the Audi RSQ in that movie.

    Googling "riced out" leads to all sorts of misfortunate victims.

    "Daltima", half Altima, half Dakota. Gotta love Alabama.

    Oh come on. That Honda is so badly done that it would have embarrassed me when I was using Photoshop in middle school.

    That rear end looks more like a Ford Ranger to me. So, it would be a "Raltima".

    Huh...it's like the Chevy equivalent of this:

    I love that Daltima. With a bit of work to tighten it up it would be a cool daily driver.
