My favorite part is that he says "No Rust" in the beginning, then mentions several areas with rust later in the listing. The part about it being a $100,000 car is also very entertaining. His spelling and grammar are pretty consistent with what I would expect from someone selling this car with a straight face. Anyone notice that the seller has six negative feedback, including two for this car?

But you can make an "outlow" out of it!

If it was mine I’d want to keep it on the downlow. I wouldn’t want to be outed!

Anywhere between 30K to 100K depending on what is wanted
You can't do a correct restoration a car for that

Very cool, so the bottom price is for just the chassis, and then you can a la carte from there?

Then owner can buy all the bits and pcs from you Adam or they can go outlaw.
I saw a VW thing last week with a Tesla motor in it and Chevy Volt batteries up in the front. It could tear the pavement up if the tires would last. Raw power. Would be real easy to put in a speedster or coupe. Go GREEN
