I lost it when the pictures of the silk cuts came across the screen.

 

I will, however, vehemently disagree to the claim of  "premier historic car restoration firm".  But the pictures can attest to how wonderful the place is.

I understand he designed it, but for what?  You also need to understand he tackled just one portion to the car.... in my eyes it's nothing more than a stock car with a rather cheesy body kit (albiet with a short lived "cool" factor).  At least the Evasive FRS has been pretty well re-engineered  (to say nothing of the other cars this month.).

 

Got a good chuckle at the DB5 reference... think it had a bit more going for it than just being sexy.

 @maxproof  @ChristianClark But impact solely based on a body kit (asthetics) is pretty stupid and short lived.  The particular car is this decades '95 civic with a "real" bomex body kit.   

 

Pretty superficial.... a bit like this Hilton girl.

 @AceAndrew2 You're right, this is what I was trying to convey (but obviously struggled to do so).

Rocket Bunny is winning, seriously? Shame speedhunters... just look at the work put into some of the other cars this month, makes the FRS look like a lego project in comparison.  Truly some amazing cars this month.
