Looks like a model built out of odds and ends without any thought to design. Because of the poor design it really doesn't seem what they have the price set.Too bad think it could have been a trick ride if more thought had been put into it.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I was blinded.

No kidding, I think I need some eye bleach

It was done many years ago with much nicer results...this car was done in the late 80's as I recall seeing it in a Street Rodder mag.

Besides being ugly, did any one notice the lack of a drive shaft? Who ever was behind this build should be forbidden from ever using tools again. This is a truly offensive excuse for an automobile at any price.

That '32 with the Ferrari V-12 is done right, but I agree on the one in the link, it looks like parts thrown together without much thought.  Other than body, drivetrain/rear suspension, and rolling stock, it looks like the rest is a throw away and start again nearly from scratch by somebody like Bill (Ace Garage Guy).

, did any one notice the lack of a drive shaft?

Or the lack of induction ducts? Is the steering hooked up? Where exactly is the radiator? It does not seem to be a finished job. Even so, I don't really think it was ever meant to actually drive. I guess there are reasons why someone would want to put an exotic engine in a rod and not drive it, that happens from time to time - but what leaves me scratching my head is the stance..   

But here we are discussing it, and the builder / owner is getting attention.

If this were one of Jalopnik's "Nice Price or Crack Pipe" features, I'd vote CP, all day long.

I like hot rods. I like Ferraris. I don't like this.

I'm pretty sure I saw a model of that backbirth in the toy aisle at Walmart last week.

Okay, I don't think it's as bad as everybody else here is saying. That said. I don't like it. I just was expecting much worst from the immediate comments I read here before clicking the link. At the same time, I love the Eye Bleach pictured above. There are many more abominations out their that I could use that for. And some are my own creatations! ?
