wow you don't appreciate how low the car is until you see the dog can stick his nose right into the engine compartment..
Although it is low, that's a healthy 115lb. hound standing next to it. My Wife only has about 5-6 lbs. on him! He's a German Shepherd/Rodesian Ridgeback mix. When he runs through the house, he pushes furniture out of his way....
And while I wouldn't build something like this for myself (we kept our GTI bone stock throughout its life with us....) I am having fun modifying this car. I don't care if its a truck, van, import, domestic, whatever I'm helping a good friend and enjoying the car hobby. And while my Barracuda can inhale this and sneeze it out, it IS fun to drive. Not so much fast as its quick, if you know the difference.
Round #2 this week. I'll post updates when it's ready.
