  1. Oh my God, every married wrench on the planet's gonna save that garage floor pic for his wife as evidence that It Could Be Worse.

    Seriously, though, looks like there's a lot of money just in the parts here. And it doesn't look like the work done so far is a Complete Genital-Penetration-Up.

    Was he going for a period-look with the slot-mags and the Radial TAs, or are those tires really that old?

    Two grand with 13 hours to go. Probably a decent deal for someone who wants a project.
