I like it, some details aren't to my liking, but I like the general aesthetic of the car. I like the over engineered aspect of the car, in a high end car, it's what really stands out to me. I've always liked the old aircraft Bomber style dimple die holes and blind rivets as well.

Nice paint doesn't make the car faster, so it's never been something that appeals to me. My own car won't be getting repainted. I would have fixed the rust in the rear quarter panels though.

I like it. Thanks for sharing. Pretty sure it's built to be street driven. Docile cam and small turbos. It'll pull like a freight train. Probably weighs close to a new Challenger or Camaro.

That was my comment. Richard Rawling is an A$$hole! Photo was part of an underhanded internet marketing scheme that flooded forums with similar pics promoting Gas Monkey Garage the first time it was proposed. Didn't work then and the network put it on hold for 2 years before its first airing.

Cab I agree w/the paint part. Looks half done. Never got into the patina crap or rat rod fad. All the engineering and fab work in the world wont overcome the ugly exterior.

With complete respect for all of the talent, skill, and money necessary to complete that build, for me it's hideous. I don't like turbos I don't like the interior styling, and I like paint.

To say he isn’t tallented or capable of doing this is making a false statement.
He is in the position to pay for a build like this precisely because of his skills. Unless you are a true “do it yourselfer” with actual experience in metal fab, maybe you just can’t recognize it. He is a rare breed of modern metal fabricator. He would be just as comfortable being a blacksmith as building a billet wheel.

Nice to see a positive post or two about this. I have been in the metal fabrication game for 35 years but I have never put out a job of this high standard. If I wanted a car at this level I would need to get help and pay for the work to be done, this should not be frowned on.

Yeah there is a few things I would have done different but would I knock it ? No way.

biggest concern doing it this way is to NOT grind the weld away radiusing the corners to make it appear super smooth. if the weld bead is not compromised by grinding it away, it will be as strong as if it was a one piece chunk. takes some practice to get right, however. hope this makes some sense.
