    There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply.
    The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey.

    A line from the movie Dodgeball comes to mind after looking at that picture:

    Those hub caps are horrible. That car needs a new home.

    Hey now.... while I don't much care for those wheels, at least the rest of it was done (or so it appears from the photos) with care and attention to detail.
    The t-tops certainly look better than most of the one size fits most sunroofs people install...

    Wonder how the body strength issue was resolved. Or maybe it wasn't.

    The t-tops are nice. The hub caps are bad. Other than that the rest of the mods are not unheard of. I believe the overall response in this thread is impacted by the title having "280ZX" in it.

    I think the overall response to the thread is impacted by a heinous looking car.
    Just my opinion though.
