In reply to z31maniac:

His other cars on eBay would make great LeMons themes too, if not for price.

I think you added a couple of zeroes to that. More like 250 at pep boy's.

I think the 25k might be accurate, if you count shipping prices. He had to have cleaned out every Pep Boys in a 500 mile radius and started ordering more garbage online.

Ok, it's a car that was built as a tribute to a movie that had no cars in it, and had nothing to do with cars?
I know it's early on a Monday morning, so tell me if I'm missing something.

My thoughts excactly. Strip the interior, add a cage, done. Not for the $2500 buy-in, tho...
