    I agree with you. I think it's his homage to the brand. Hats off to him.

    The extents folks will go to. You'd really think that perhaps it is easier to buy the real thing. I guess there might be some cost reduction in insurance.

    You could say that.:)
    Looks like a lot of skill and effort went into this one. Mustangs considered rare over there?

    It is easier to buy the real one, as you can "never" registerate that in road here. It would need to pass today's emission, drive by noise, crash test etc. everything that new car has to pass in EU to be street legal.

    No, their not common like in states, my estimate is that they sell maybe 10-15 new Mustangs a year (there is 2 612 922 car in whole country), so while they aren't that common you can still find one if you want one, there is 12 used Mustangs (2015-17) for sale at the moment.
    But brand new EcoBoost is 52 746€ and V8 GT is 80,794€ (from that price 35,594€ is tax, local car tax is pretty heavy). Mustang being that expensive it is out of the value point it was originally build and starts have some pretty serious competition.

    I can't read the gibberish in the eBay ad, but it looks like someone took about 15" out of the center of a Mustang. Although the car still has 2 front seats, the steering wheel looks like it is in the middle of the car. Definitely unusual!:eek:

    I've always thought about buying one of these. I have some ideas for other brands' versions of the Fiero, and this would be a great starting point (wouldn't look like a Ferrari rep when I got done with it).
