there really is no craftsmanship to be proud of. fiberglassing a speaker box is easy. this is a pure case of bought not built. in fact is more a revelation that mankind is doomed
Uhm , not built ?

I am going to assume you don't have much car knowledge ... regardless of form/function -- this car had a ton (a ton) of modifications from suspension , gears , motor (Kenne belle 2.7) , brakes , paint , interior ... I'll stop there.

If someone were to ask a shop to replicate this build (or "bought" as you call it) , expect a bill of over $120k easy (not including price of the car) , and 6-12 month build (or "bought") timeframe.

This BUILD is very professional , and superb craftsmanship regardless if you like the car or not ...

"bought" cars don't get invited to SEMA .

I'm 100% sure you have no idea towards the extent of modifications made to this car.,

This isn't a camaro with big wheels and speakers , it's a full blown custom build that Tampa Customs did in an almost impossible timeframe.

Pretty sad you don't respect hard work based on your "preferred performance/style"

BTW : This car ran a 12.2 on 32" wheels ...

What are you running in the quarter ?
