Re: MACHIAVELLI on craigslist

Honestly I kind of like what they have done with it. I know I am going to get bashed but I always liked Ferrari's and these have a 308 feel to them... I bet they really turn heads going down the road.

Yeah, and adding a couple hundred pounds of bondo and fiberglass definitely won't make it faster...

means easier to fix if you wreck the sides from sagging doors or going over hills that are too steep?! If someone was to find one of these years from now i'm sure they might be a little happier if they had the capability to find at least some parts easily. Overall i like it, works well with the body, of which i LOVE the stock bodies, but this holds it's own IMO.

I find it funny that you stated this. Honestly a Ferrrari, like a Testarossa is a large car for a sports car. They tend to be very wide. And weigh about 4000 pounds IIRC.

Too bad it is an LG4... Nothing like looking fast without anything to back it up... One of these would be a great candidate for an LS7 installation...

I was moreso noticing the lack of flush fitment of the headlights and hood. But I agree there is something not quite right with the stance and tires / wheels that keep it from looking more like a low-slung 308.

Re: MACHIAVELLI on craigslist

Now that you mention it, the fit is horrible. The hood looks like it's pop canned. I do like the wood steering wheel and would like to see a good pic of the leather Recaro leather seats.

Re: MACHIAVELLI on craigslist

Dang, I was hoping to see photos of Tupac's third gen.

This car is hideous on so many levels.

1. Most often copied/hacked-up car that they're trying to re-create (Ferrari 308/328, which it doesn't even look close to since the dimensions of the two cars are so different)
2. Waste of a perfectly good T/A
3. It's a gutless LG4
4. Woodgrain kit (WHY!? Ferrari 308s never had woodgrain!)
5. Poor fit and finish

Those arnt leather recaros either. They are LS Contour seats. Ill get a slight flame for this but of all the kit cars ive seen based off these cars i like this the best.
