They did that kind of Vet style. For sure different, but it doesn't look horrible

Not my preference, thats for sure

this looks like a hack job more than a thought out conversion. For one, the cuts don't look great, or properly capped, and the door window frames were completely removed, so when the windows are rolled up, there is still a space at the front and rear that isn't filled in.

If it was mine, I would have cut the T-Top section out of one of the other cars and added it in, or atleast used the hardware from it.

He'* probably selling it to cut his losses since he'* done such a bad job and can't fix it. That is too bad.

By the way, what'* that V6 inside?

For $500, if it were any good, then maybe. This is such a shame because this car could easily become a monster of a drag machine since it'* a 2-door coupe, and it had a really strong chassis. Such a shame.
