    This is a perfect example to demonstrate why I refuse to use words like replica, re-creation, reconstruction, etc. ad infinitum. They are just fakes to me.

    I think deviations from standard designs actually adds some fun into these cars instead of taking something away. In the end of the day every fake is a mongrel, so it is also very hard to understand why even try to make an exact copy of a real car. The attempt will fail anyway 98 times out of a hundred so it is total waste of time... unless it serves the purpose to be close enough to fool a naiive buyer, then cry all the way to the bank.

    For sale in Belgium! Seems like a lot of these "diffrent" cars are for sale in Belgium. Why is that?

    Bump!

    This car is now in Sweden and will take part in the Gumball 3000. It will go all the way to Vegas, so you can enjoy it in the US!

    How could you screw up the shape of the headlight area / fender so badly?

    Any 1 thanks but no thanks, prefer to see this thing stay out of the US!

    Maybe somebody can save the engine and other original components and scrap the rest of that monster.

    It does not necessarily contain many parts to save; clearly built using a random chassis and pile of random parts.
