I saw this in august at laguna seca and it is absolutely beautiful. Rob (the dude from singer) was really nice and completely not a egotistical about his build. I wish more builders would strive for this level of clarity of vision, as I think it really helps push others to build better cars themselves.

also, @Larry Chen and @speedhunters_mike  when were you out here for this story? I know all those photo spots

definitely lots of cool touches and I really like the general theme. love the color. not a big fan of body kits in general, so i'm sorta bias against this one.


I just can not believe that this car gets driven. seems completely impossible to drive on any road with even the slightest irregular surface.

and the louvers, I always thought the old-school rodders have a louver-pressing machine that punches the shape into an existing panel, one louver at a time. I didn't know you could just buy a big louvered piece of metal and tack it on.  I think doing some actual welding and grinding would make the hood 1000 times better looking.

cool build nonetheless! thumbs up!

BTW, any car movie list needs to include: Claude Lelouch's Rendevous "C'etait un Rendezvous", which is just 10 minutes of illegal driving through paris in 1976, with a camera mounted to the front of a ferrari, and probably is on of the most influential vehicle films ever made.

 @ComJive i understand that aspect that you're describing, BUT that requires the premise that that front end should be half an inch above the ground. Nakia's early cars without the clunky rubber didn't require the look to be scraping the ground. using the need to look low as a justification for running thick rubber chunks is just circular reasoning. I'm not at any point saying the car needs to be "VAG low". again, using the hazards as a reason to validate the excessive rubber is not a valid argument, because it implies the acceptance that the car needs to scrape the ground, and therefore you'll need to avoid hazards.

 @ComJive here's a couple that don't have huge chunks of rubber tacked on to the front splitters. http://image.automotive.com/f/featuredvehicles/eurp_1011_rauh_welt_begriff_porsches/30781870%2Bsoriginal/eurp_1011_03_o%2Brauh_welt_begriff_porsches%2B964_caerra_2s.jpgand this one as well http://jasonsgrainofsalt.files.wordpress.com/2010/12/moblog_865ea40c.jpgand I'm not sure what the 'hard parking' comment is even in regards to. does having a 4in piece of rubber on the air dam instead of a 2in piece of rubber on the air dam somehow make the car more usable or are you just trying to create a false premise so it looks like your point is valid?

I normally enjoy his builds, but this one feels the most 'fake' than the others. somehow the body kit below the door, and the 5 inch front air damn seem like a 'cheater' way of making the car look really low. those things have to be sitting 3 inches lower than the frame rails.tinted headlights?. tinted windows on a 'track car'?. door jams not color matched. comeon, it's details that make his cars amazing and subsequently, LACK of details detract from it.I know RWB has set the bar really high for himself, but this seems somehow LESS RWB.
