    It is most definately fake, but you have to say, it looks like a "sports car tank"!

    PS I LOVE the 'limp' sideview mirror!

    You mean the 80's style Chevy Cargo Van wheels aren't factory original? ;)

    From his wonderful website My notes added in parentheses:

    Modifications

    Brake Upgrades: Custom (I can't the picture of holes cut in the floorboards for Flinstone Style breaking.

    Drivetrain / Transmission: Clutch Masters(after seeing his lovely shifter plate on definitely want to have work done by they guy he reccomends at the bottom of the page. I wonder how often he drops his crack pipe down into that cavern. Flywheel material: Donny Osmond records.)

    Electronics: HKS (A Casio Watch, a breadboard from radioshack and )

    Engine Components: HKS (Most likely forged upside down coke cans for some low compression dished pistons. He did drink the coke first though to lower reciprocating mass**for higher revs.)

    Exhaust: Custom (Nothing but the finest T-304 Stainless PVC pipes and a Foldgers original muffler)

    Header: Custom (Hmmm...could have sworn that this was part of the exhaust system. But I'll venture to say his intense knowledge of thermal dynamics and the flow of gasses at high temperatures coupled with his extensive r&d program allowed him to discover the beneficial properties of using cardboard toliet paper rolls. Seeing as it is a turbo, I am sure he used a paper towel tube for the downpipe.)

    Ignition: HKS (A in a wheel. The timing may not be spot on but as long as he keeps feeding his fuzzy friend cheese and bread he won't let him down while he is putting the smack down on some piece of sissy ass prancing horse crap)

    Intake: HKS (I heard tampons make great highflow airfilters, but didn't know HKS was making intakes with them yet. And is that a really big bandage on the intake pipes? Is the engine as wounded as the exterior?)

    Performance Chip: Superchip (With all of the extensive customization I would think that a Custom chip would be in order as well. I am thinking Lays, but I could be wrong, as he also strikes me as a Dorito type.)

    Shocks: Tokico ( They made custom shocks just for him. In keeping with the high quality, high performance custom modifications, they used 1949 Chevy Suburban bodies and shafts and rubberized hot water bottles as reservoirs. They are adjustable though as you can always drain/add some water.)

    Springs: Eibach (Well, they are painted red and they do have the stickers on them but I would guess they came out of the kind of pen that you have to push the plunger on the top to expose the tip. He probably cut a coil off though to lower his ride and up the spring rate for some added stiffness in the turns)

    Strut Bars: Custom (To quote mommy dearest, "No more wire hangers.")

    But it outruns the F2004 and corners like it is on rails (HO Scale train).

    I would say lay off the girl. She obviously isn't well in the first place and with how she towers over him, she might snap and impale his hand on his own hair before beating him to death with his strut bars. Then what do we do for entertainment.
