Yeah the guy who made it didnt understand the difference between two classes of demo cars; the big boats with V8 and the fwd 4 cylinders.

No doubt about the rust, I thought about getting a Tetanus booster shot.

use the II's drive shaft to create a worm gear to open the garage door, use the steering wheel to crank it with :)

I thought proper procedure when your garage door won't open is to call 911, not cut the car up???

I suggest why don't you try to consult to the professionals? It would be easier for you.
