It is perhaps not surprising given how fat we've become - well, not us of course but everyone else - that someone should think this worth doing.

But whatever the merits of the idea one has to admire the execution and the fact that it actually got finished. Adding 12" to a car and making it look factory, hats off to that man. And with a V8, of course.

Now, whether someone will be willing to stump up 17,000/$24,000 for it is another matter.
But I bet it goes well.

Yes, a remarkable amount of work.

So how does it handle on the road, compared to the standard car?
