I quite like it, but have always liked the concept of Rat Rods. And it would be harder to pull of and look great than what people think it is. I mean, you couldn't exactly use a green door or something like that, it would destroy the look being aimed for.

like someone said above i want to hate it but can't.

it does look tough. though i probably couldnt live with it or own it i think theres maybe 1" of clearance between rails and road.

I want to hate it, and I do.  What a waste of space.

I'd put a big block chev in it and by the end of the quarter mile it would be a body less car, awesome!

I love it.  It's inspiring me to get another Z and just build it with what I can find ( hint hint Ash.  Lol).  To those that talk about practicality and safety.  You have to understand that those of us that build by the rat rod ethos do not really care about such things.  Too low is usually just low enough... We know it's going to handle like s h i t  and be a total pain in the ass on long trips.  These days i enjoy comfort so I have a car that is great on long trips but damn I do miss driving stuff like that.  Maybe I better get on eBay and start looking for a rough old Z.

That car is like the picture of Dorian Gray, for every rust repair we do to the other car, this one gets slightly worse ;)
