Not everyones an OE guy...of course an OE judge would pick a pros pick goodguys level car apart. Wasnt built to any kind of stock standard. Car may not be your or my taste, but at the end of the day, Its an awesome build , and probably cost every bit or more of that estimate. Gimme a winning powerball ticket , and Id probably terrorize the streets with it.

Chip Foose got out of his rocking chair for on last project?

If I were a car thief and it was empty running on a abandoned street id keep walking.

I did leave my street racer run unattended last weekend while I got a soda and a 80+ year old man told me it was the first car hed ever thought of stealing, yikes.

One word....garbage. I would be embarrassed to be seen looking at that pile. That is an insult to all Demons.

Everything is so overdone, there's no restraint. This type of car is clearly for the gold chain types who could care less about the car itself or any sort of originality. It's all about being seen.

I've found that people like that are oblivious to the evolution of styling trends; they couldn't tell you the hows or whys but they'll go on and on about how much it cost to build and/or buy.

Illustrating the dish of the wheel with a $100 bill? What point are you trying to prove, that you have money to burn?

Plus, the paint job makes it look like a Dart Sport.

This wreck looks just like a Gas Monkey creation. Poorly slapped together.

Are those rear wheel wells stretched? That's what looks "off" to me. I know it's done to fit big tires but was it really needed on this car? It looks like there is a lot of room around those back wheels/tires.

Maybe the rear end was pushed back to center it in the wheel well?

I recall the big wheels thing becoming the trend around 2000? Going on 20 years now and looking like its here to stay.

I’ve seen this car in person. The body work is clean and the paint looks like it was applied well. The grille was made from a solid piece of billet, per the owner. Still, it’s an ugly build. I looked under it a bit too. Looks like it was an old drag car. Hence the rear wheel wells. Also not mentioned, it has/had a 1976 Dart swinger dash VIN. It’s just a cobbled mess.
