F-1/Dodge Viper mashup

I stumbled across this build on Facebook. The guy did an amazing job; I thought some of you Darksider's might see some ideas that you like in there.





Peace,

Not really my kind of thing either Vern, but it took a tremendous amount of skill and effort to do what he did, and I respect that.

I'm sorry, but that looks like more nightmare than craftsmanship, to me. Just because you can doesn't mean you should. I've seen craftsmanship, and that ain't it.

I saw a Viper V-10 installed in a 34 Dodge coupe a few years ago but the car was basically stock looking on the outside. I really don't see the appeal of the V-10. It doesn't even sound as good as a V8...sounds more like a 6 banger on steroids!

100% agree with that. It's a shame to hack up a truck like this. It looks like someone pushed down on the cab really hard and it squeezed the sides out

I liked the scooter in this shot, but not the way they finished it. Looks like they upholstered the sides??? And what's up with no seat? Is anyone really going to ride it sitting on the edge of the fin???

It's called a "wedgy" seat. It's the latest trend... soon you'll be seeing them everywhere.
