Thursday Twister: Best Custom Show Car

In the past few weeks I've been to SEMA and to the LA Auto Show (more on that in a later post) and it got me thinking about show cars for this week's Thursday Twister...the quiz with a twist.  Find the best ex-SEMA (or other Hot-Rod) show car for sale on the interwebs.  Be prepared to defend your choice.

 My choice is this 1969 Porsche 911 that has been turned into a Baja Beetle style custom...complete with 2275cc pancake flat-4 and crazy long-travel suspension.  At a $39k asking price here on eBay, the thing is expensive, but certainly more capable of running the Paris-Dakar Rally than some other expensive machines.

Find me a better show car and put it in the comments below.

    Here's an interesting find: an FD RX-7 wearing an RX-3 front clip.

  2. There is absolutely nothing to defend about this ride. It's horrific in every way and that's before you even get to the price tag. I am just awestruck by of the level of commitment it took to finish this project... even after the crack ran out.
    1984 Chevy Camaro Z-28 "DreamRyder"

    "More DreamRyder please", you say? This YouTube link is for you. At the 7:20 mark, BEWARE. The Eye of Dreams will try and hypnotize you into logging on to Paypal and sending a deposit.

    1. That thing is outrageous. Oh Mr. Huggy Bear, your car is ready. That rear end looks like it needs a pair of panties. I've never seen a car with plumber-butt before.

    2. I'm not thinking Huggy I'm thinkin' Josie and her pussycats!

    3. It definitely looks like something out of a saturday morning cartoon.

    4. The crazy thing is that the fabrication skills are really good. The execution is just really bad.
      It definitely comes with LSD and I don't meant limited slip differential.

    5. Any pimp would love that interior! Oddly enough, it does have Hanna-Barbera written all over it as well. Regardless, guy has skillz. I wonder if he made his own pipe too? :D

  3. Always liked the GR-1 Concept
