Um, no.

It looks like its sculpted in bondo for starters. Kinda like an RV-trailer? Looks more like a shit catcher. Rolling Eyes

I am at a loss for words. This is just UNBELIEVABLY BAD. Stupid idea. Poorly done. Priced at about 10 times reality.
How is this more valuable to anyone than the 1971 bus that was cut up?
One could take a $1000 bus, dump $1000 worth of glue on it, but that doesn't make it worth $2000 or even $2001. This work would be called damage by most people.
Unbelievable.

Here's a kinda attractive 1970 Riviera conversion.
But wow, look where the fuel filter is: LAYING ON THE HEAT RISER PIPE. aT LEAST IS PLASTIC SO IT WILL MELT.
and $32,000 bid so far.
Maybe somebody can put a picture up?

Is that rust or just bad paint on the upper edge of the engine compartment seal. I have a feeling there is a lot hidden beneath that shiny paint.

The funny thing about eBay is one's ability to have friends up bid the process. Wink Cool Laughing
