I had my body man extend the Drive's Foot Compartment 12 Inches. I am 6 foot 2 inches tall and to drive the car I had to bend my legs. It was very uncomfortable and not a pleasure to drive.

As thepictures indicate, the professionally done
"BRIGHT SILVER WITH GREY RACING STIPES" paint job on "FAST ONE" speaks for itself. It is amazing what a $10,000 paint job will do to a car. The sides are straight as a arrow. It is imacculately detailed inside, outside, and underneath. The paint in the door jabs and inside the trunk is as nice as it is on the outside.
