    Someone paid a lot of s for that paint job. Must be nice to have the funds to afford building such a POS!

    Look at the "people were also interested in" below...yep all in "that" category.

    I will say that the paint work took some talent. Not to my taste but credit where it's due.

    While this one is a bit over the top I have many recollections of cars and vans of the 70's much wilder paint
