    4039DD33-46D0-456D-B1B5-0AF1818C0FDB.jpeg I’m curious what people think of this. It went for $14,600 at the last moment. It was a B5 Blue 73 Cuda with a 4 Speed. Metal looked clean but the interior was gutted & caged and converted to automatic. There is no way to know how much work it would be to put a real dash & Interior back in and what was cut. Custom front and rear valance would have to go. Bumper supports shortened. 2 scoops missing. Wheel wells cut? Undercarriage looked perfect though. Worth $14,600?

    It’s ok accept for the ugly wheels and the ridiculous stripe. Oh and what did they do with the wheelhouse?

    Can't understand why someone would waste their time and money vandalizing and devaluing a classic like this, must be drug related.

    I’m not sure why they did it. If I bought it it would have been for the clean shell and good tag. The wheelhouse was a huge concern I had. The metal work was skillful but this guy’s creation was obviously a terrible idea and the auction proved that.

    When someone resto-mods a car like that, it is either their dream idea of what a car should look like and be, or they think they will make a killing at the auctions for their creation.
    Personally, I don't think it would be for me; at my age, I want to maintain some dignity (body stripes-ugh). I'm sure the seller got burned on what he had into that car.
