I stumbled across this today. Looks like an unfinished project from Pimp my Ride.

Sad to see a really great car treated with such disrespect.

What am I missing? It looks like it got a new interior and new paint, and is missing some engine bay bits. Apart from the saggy headliner it actually looks quite nice, that pleater they used is probably in a lot better shape then the leather it replaced. Assuming the underside is still there that could be a reasonable into the cheap M100 club. Being a Cali car I bet there's little or no rust to be found!

Looks like a very expensive project. Who knows what is missing. It always amuses me when they show a picture of the odometer. Also it looks like rust is visible on the inside of one of the fenders.
