    Nice find, and definitely a good read. Yeah, the guy took this project to warp-factor ridiculousness, but he took the time to photograph and document the whole thing. It's neat to see the process evolve.

    i agree, and the saturn version looks the best imo. This one looks kinda weird in the front with that blue plastic, it looks like a wierd pontiac.
