The bad: It needs shocks, the windshield has a crack in it, there are a few small rock holes in the passenger floorboard, the paint on the wheels is chipping and needs redoing, the paint on the fenders & nose could stand to be freshened up, alloy body could use a good polish, the hole in hood is a bit too big, the blister on the nose for radiator cap clearance is not the prettiest thing around, having LED turn signals means the turn signal flasher doesn't work (needs dummy load) but the hazard flashers do work, and the fuel level gauge reads empty with ~2 gallons still in the tank... which is better than the opposite.
I would describe it as a bit of a rat rod, but it is an absolute blast to drive. It definitely could use some TLC if you want it to be pretty, but it is ready to be enjoyed as is.
