View interior idea pix here

Where to start on this one...



Why, why, why, why, why, why, why? (Seven, is that enough whys?)
First person to say "to each his own" gets the "retard of the year" (abbreviated ROTY) award, or will be the runner-up to the pictured Boxster's owner.

OH I have so much to say about this. Why can't I just let it go?
This is not creative or clever.
This is not tasteful or tactful.
This is not productive or useful.
Dare I say, this isn't art?

Is this car entered in shows to which people respond "Yes, some one that knows what they're doing."

Does one drive this car thinking, "Hmm, five screens for viewing isn't enough in a 2 seater. I will need at least six."? What about, "I want to appear affluent, but I need people to know that I make poor decisions."?

Anyone have any insight?

I thought some stereo shop for ricers was using it as a garbage can.

I love the mini laptop on the airbag cover. That'll break a rib or two and put out an eye for the fool that rides in the passenger seat.

And he will wreck that car if he uses any of that crap while the vehicle is moving!

However, the carbon fiber hood scoops take the cake, don'tcha think?

ahahaha, that's got to be the best mod he's done.

Don't we all need to get more air to our spare tires?

I did not even see the scoops.
I remember the day I was driving my car and thinking that wow, my spare tire is hot.

But lets think about this....
The air scoops are to cool off all the amps in the front trunk!!

Yeah, he's got them bolted to the top of the car to show off his NOS setup.

He also walks around the car display with a loaded handgun in his mouth.

Not only are the NOS tanks mounted on top of the car like Randal mentioned but they are mounted onto the Speedster Humps! That must be very sturdy.

^ I kinda like the NoS tanks sitting on top of the fiberglass....gives it that speed racer look. Like he's daring you "you don't want a piece of this guy...i'll just flip this switch on my PS3 and you'll be eating my dust".

Someone put a lot of time and at least some money into building this thing. I just do not understand the purpose of this thing.

Did anyone else notice what looks like a play station controller above the steering column? The purpose of this is to play video games while driving? That is about as practical as putting a toilet inside your refrigerator. WAIT! Now that is a thought. I could put a toilet inside a refrigerator and call it "art". I bet it would sell in NYC for a million bucks.

On another thought, I wonder if he might get a beating if he drove this around in Germany?

That thing is awesome!
And when you crash from playing your PS3 while driving, you get the added bonus of an air tank sticking out the back of your head!!!

Hey Jeph,

To each his own?

Man, there is no way to defend that thing. It is monstrous.
