If you're going to go to the trouble and expense of building a replica, shouldn't you at least start with a kit that kind of gets the details and proportions right? You know, so that somebody might actually look at the finished item and not laugh?


Haha, that's definitely an engine bay worthy of a Lamborghini!

The engine compartment you can at least hide. I'm more troubled by the car's incorrect proportions, extraneous hood scoop, and ghastly non-hidden headlights.

Also, the windows don't roll down.

Is it just me, or does that front bumper look like a Dodge Avenger front bumper modded up top to incorporate that Mustang grille area rather than the crosshair? Minus that crazy black air dam at the bottom of course...

that car is not too bad. For the money, they should have got the fauxrari kit because it looks better proportioned.

and its an automatic...
but, the next one you see may be more than you bargained for. I remember back when I was into fiero's a company in florida had a very well done lambo kit which the fit and finish was top notch, then throw in a v8 conversion and eat other cars alive due to hp / weight difference.

So much "mustang" writin on it....does he occasionally suffer short term amnesia and therefore conveniently forget what POS he drives? Only in that case is it ok to have constant reminders of the model of your car....all over your car...
