I saw that in the update email. While it's definitely not my taste, if the owner loves it then cool. Though I will say it needs the updated headlights, badly.

I'm guessing that's a photoshop anyway. Might even be the work of Jager !

I always say "Do what ever you like, its your car". But I can't say that I like this particular paint job.

My bad guys!
It's been in the body shop for over 3 weeks now.
I call the guy every few days to see how he's getting on but no dice. All I get is 'need a few more days, just a couple more'.

All this time it appears its been finished and He has been posting pictures all over the web. Well I'll be having words with him!

Anyways be glad to see her back this weekend!

I'm sorry but it ranks up there with the Porsche go-cart that was floating around eBay a while ago.

Now that thing is awesome. I don't care what anyone says. Once you have the experience of being in something like that while blasting around a racetrack, you never want to go back.

A Boxster is not a 1965 VW Bug. Looks like the HotWheels division of Mattel got a hold of it. Great execution, but wrong car.

Actually, I like the go-cart a lot more than that blue flames/waves.

It probably would be fun; personally, I wouldn't trust that roll cage though.
