Yeah but for less than $10000 you could have like an entire LeMons race all to yourself.

Where are you having this race if you could not secure the land?

And in reality, average lemons car is like 3 - $5,000 after all safety gear

Wait wat?

Someone forgot to tell him that you should replace the CAD with actual metal when you are done. :/

Seriously though, why? I get it's fun to fabricate etc, but it will end up like this in 99.9% of cases. Even if it's done it'll look like poo poo.

Those are Baja California (i.e. Mexico) plates. The ad does at least mention this, but I don't know how "easy" it is to get CA registration of a BC car.

cause the seller for sure lives in TJ and is only listing it in San Diego because they expect more money from gringos north of the border. Good luck getting a carbureted 1980 engine to pass CA smog.

Considering it's a Michigan truck, way less rust that I would have expected.
There is something I like about the idea of a convertible pickup.

IIRC it was aftermarket, but not just some guy chopping off the roof. It was a legit, if short lived conversion.

Usually if part of the top of the car is missing or altered it's ASC.

It feels like the execution of the top could have been better. I had a friend that had one, and he took the actual top off during the summer and did a bikini top from the roll bar to the header.

• Highly Desirable first year Chrome Bumper Model.
• Numbers Matching 351 Cleveland V-8 Engine
with 330 HP. Highest horsepower rates from factory.
• 5-Speed ZF Manual Transmission.
• Yellow Exterior over Black Interior.
• Designed by Italian Company Ghia.
• Upgraded Cooling System -
New AC System installed by PMI.
• Runs Smooth with Excellent
Performance and Handling.

The 1971 model year had the highest HP rating of the 4 model years imported by Ford (1972 had 266 HP).With a Ford V8 and the same ZF transmission as the GT40, it was considered by Ford to be the road going version of the extremely rare GT40. Sold in the Lincoln/Mercury showrooms in the US. A 5 star investment with huge upside potential.

Loved by speed freaks, gear heads and aficionados around the world. One of the stars of the show.

^Interesting to know but literally the least of my concerns if the opportunity came up to own one.

There was one semi-local to me, looked just like that, yellow for $50K moonbux about 5 years ago. I think it was a 72 though.

I could have stretched it to make it work and drat I knew at the time I shouldn't have passed it up. Oh well, probably would have ended my marriage, so there is that I suppose?

Oh sure, just some odd bit of trivia I read years back. It was something like raising the front of the car way up, stand on one leg, etc. and even then that worked like half of the time. Only was reminded from that ad that it had improved cooling system. Yet somehow I can't remember what I had for breakfast yesterday. Cars will do that to you.

The more I keep looking at the Jalapeno the more I think I would totally rallycross that bitch just for shits.

If nothing else, the Artero and Scorpion kits are at least cohesive designs and complete looking. So many kit cars look like the ends were designed by two different people, or they got 3/4s through the design and just gave up towards the rear.

The XTC (lol) being designed by a "Maserati dealer" and not someone who actually went to a design school is pretty self evident.

I've said it before, but kit car owners are an odd bunch.
