Angry A Dam# shame

Hi, I wish people could just leave them stock, but to each his own.
But I've seen worse.[URL=http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1874135152&category=6434]

Yep! That should be against the law.

I saw that earlier and had a chuckle. Why is the cowl not street legal though?

IT may be obstructing too much of the driver's vision -- definately over-stated!

I'm thinking that the 52/48 weight distribution would be just a wee bit upset by the shoe-horning of a Chevy V8 under the hood. There's no way that car will have the same poise as a normal 944.

It skews it off a bit but not as bad as you'd think -- renegade has the weights on their website. I don't think that the guy dropping the V-8 into the 944/951 is necessarily looking for 'balance'!

I'd like to know how he opens the hood (w/o trashing the windshield)!

He really messed this car up.....Ugh!

Either the hood is converted to front hinged, or it's held on by a peg at each corner. Those are my best guesses.

he says "All glass is in great shape except the windshield, which has a crack in it. "

Check out the missing passengerside quarter window...


But "Oh Snap"... I bet with some NOS and a tornado intake, it could rock all those haters in the civics..
