I do not condone this kind of chopping behavior, but if the old CIS was not restorable, this might have been the only hope. The CIS Jetronic is very expensive. However, four double choke webers would have been a better way to do this rather than a cheap patch up with a 4 barrel Holley. The polishing job might have been cooler if the steel and plastic body parts would have remained guards red. It might have given the car a Bugatti Yeyron kinda look. Also the wheels are just rigoddamndiculous.

Imagine trying to fix a K-Jet car without so much as a clue on how the fuel injection system works.

As evident by most Craig List ads for OB's, most people call it quits right about then. I think it became a "what have I got to lose" situation for the guy.

Good for him. He retrofitted a carb and now he's off enjoying his car.

Bad for him: Until he fixes the CIS, he's married to this car for life and he'll be fodder for our comments.
LOL, I just want to know HOW the HELL he mounted the Holley???

Reminds me of bastard projects I had when I was a teenager. Not knowing or having access to the 'right' way leads to creative solutions.

Some credit has to be given for those who find their own path out of the box.

I think it (Especially the silver car) looks very post MAD-MAX .

12:12:2012 its coming ??(ohh scary) LOL
