I have to admire the seller, just about as cheap as you can get to get on a racetrack for trackdays and shed a lot of weight. You have to guess the guy certainly got his money's and fun worth out of this spider. And yes, thankfully it's not anywhere near me.

If JD's spider is a 10 (or more) then this is the opposite end of the scale.

DIY 2 hose thermostat setup, but I suppose if you can TIG why not!

Makes my white car look luxurious!

"Well worth the price" That's why I'm glad it's not near me. I'm not sure there are that many idiots like you or me who would want something like this as a start point for a street rat.

yep, glad it's not closer. Little elbow grease and a new paint job, looks like fun to me.

Needs a sheet metal tonneau cover and helmet fairing. Then he can lose the scary looking cut down windshield.
