LOL all those $ numbers look pretty digitally but they look prettier in ones bank account :p.

I think this dude might have picked up some parts from a junk yard/salvage etc. for dirt cheap and probably can built it for less than it would cost to buy a 10lb bag of suckers. So lets see when he is going to post some pics of this project so we can all cheer him along !

I personally would love to see this done via junkyard methods. Possibly take a cheap Toyota RWD subframe out strengthen widen it ect. then hook it up to a gm v8. If you went twin turbo as well it'd be pretty impressive alongside either a r34 Skyline or jzx100 Toyota Chaser. You'd get bigger reactions and have more of a show car imo. But forget swapping in expensive stuff the goal would be to keep it under 10k maybe 15k tops, and engine mileage reset with 0 or low mile parts. I'd be tempted to do it but super invested already and although it looks cool the interior is bigger than I need so I'm sticking with my mx83 Cressida and 2005 Aveo.
