You wouldn't catch me anywhere near the thing unless I were rolling around in hysterics ;) That spray-on enamel interior is -vile-

I always have a bit of a problem with cars like this....

I can appreciate the work that's gone into it and the quality of the result - it looks the puppy's privates! I really like the seats, although they'd be a bugger to keep clean (my beige ones are hard enough work!). And I like some of the styling, although I hate some of it too :?

If I saw it in the street or at a show I'd have a damn good looksee, but I'd never do that to one myself - it's just not my cup of tea. :cheesy:

I know what you're saying here Dai. I spent half an hour on the bog last night, curling out a cumberland and I put so much effort into it that I had to get Mrs Welton up and show her the end result. I was most disappointed, and surprised, to learn that she really couldn't give a f*ck.

Like Dai, I appreciate the effort and that, and baring the bonnet scoop the exterior looks okay i reckon. Not mad keen on the interior, but fair play to the guy for putting in the effort and i suppose as long as we all like our own rides ..... :D

What makes this froggy 406 good is not the styling, colour, or the interior but the fact the numpty did a home made turbocharging kit on a fookin auto.... I mean com'on WTF ! n00b ! :D :lol:

Nah just kidding, I first saw this 3 years ago and I thought it was great, apart from the neon rings of fire..... dude a curry will give you the same affect and look twice as good in the dark lol !

I like it.... because its original and no one else has it.... literally, its the only one of its kind! Got to love it just for that reason???

I think the neon lights behind the wheels say it all - this car ain't going nowhere. I bet under the bonnet it's a 1.8 L running on 3...

I think the interior comes from the Mr Bean school of painting.
