Some people are fun and think outside the box.

I love it's unique style. I'd love to take that to shows!

Makes my eyes go funny but it's a real head turner, fair play for doing something very different!

Brilliant, it's hard to work out where they have put sections in, very clever ...must be some torque steer from the NS driveshaft, looks about three feet long!

That car lives just round the corner from me, it makes my eyes go funny every time I drive past it, it looks so weird sitting on the driveway.

"This mini will need to be trailered away but does run."

 

I reckon it will struggle to fit on most trailers. Full sized recovery vehicle only methinks  :gimme: 

 

I just can't make up my mind whether I like it or not.

I agree, it's hideous! Why do that to a poor innocent mini (or two)? Just why?! Because you can doesn't mean you should!
Also can't believe people are actually bidding for it :o!

Awesome car

Maybe it should be black and have some marmite stickers though.

Rightly or wrongly I can't see cars that have been modified this much being able to be used on the road for much longer, even if the dvla (or whoever) don't try and kill them off I can see insurance companies being scared to go there.


It's a bit like not needing a CBT to ride a moped if you passed your car test before a certain year (97?), legally that's fine but you can't get insured so you still can't legally ride on the road!
