ya know, while I dont like the front end it makes me think that a mod with the new 2014 headlights on the late c3's might look ok.
You know all pointy and stuff with the clear point going up the fender wells.

IDK maybe I'm crazy.

Not my cup of tea, but the workmanship looked very well done. I wonder if that front end will solve cooling problems.

Not something I'd do, but I would like to know where the custom front end body parts came from? Did someone make these parts as a one-off? If so, the fabrication work looks very good...ugly but good work.

It's a "set up" sting!

They want the potential buyer there 'in person' so that they can remove him/her from society and make sure they don't procreate! The world doesn't need any more people who would actually consider buying that car.

For a '79, it looks like they grafted onto a '80-'82 front clip. Not my cup of tea, but craftsmanship looks good.
