This add is notable for its brevity. Personally I am suspicious of sellers who can't be bothered to write a full description or take a decent set of pictures, perhaps that's just me.

Anyway, this California car looks good, if one overlooks the George Foreman Grill that seems to be going on under the bonnet, and the funerial black interior.

Ready to go. Only $29,300 obo. Perhaps the value of modified cars is moving up at last. Be nice to think so.

Looks like a good car at a fair price to me. Not sure what you're meaning by lack of pictures, this one has enough for anyone who's interested to make an informed purchase. Inspection is always recommended.

That really IS sort of an American thing, maybe not popular in the UK; red car, all black interior and a K&N air filter. Common as dirt around here . . .

Hey Matt - missed you at BritishV8 this past week. You really need to make plans to make it next year; tooo much fun to miss again!! Four of us from TX made it this year, 3 from Houston.

The car reminds me of Terry Schulte's car. Not quite that calibrler and I'm glad as it be a crime at $29k. But, it still looks like a well executed car and well done. Not that I'm in the market, but for my money I'd want to see pics documenting the build. Appears to be fairly priced if done right.
