    in photos the color looks horrible. the truck has "show car paint", whatever that means other than house of colors this or that, and i can say my intention was to re-paint when I bought it but over time it grew on me (quickly) and now I love it. feel free to hate on it here though, because i agree it looks horrible in photos.

    Photos from when it was first built by Rod Millen:

    the doors are quite heavy believe it or not. must've been a lot of structural work done.

    I agree and plan on it once I get the bumpers sorted out and the friggin horn working. Had a near miss one day and it scared the hell out of me - pretty funny seeing my dopey ass leaning on a horn that don't work!
