      The V8 came in 2WD or AWD so they would not of had a 4x4 selector switch on the dash. That is how he knew.

      Honestly not to my taste but the work is impressive for a DIYer. Do you work with fiberglass for a living?

      its really just meant to be a show car to show off all the possibilities of fiberglassing and customization you can do. and no just as a hobby right now maybe later in life i will, I'm only 16 so maybe in my future i will.

      For only being 16, that is pretty awesome. Not my cup of tea but some great work there. I'd say you could have a future doing that.
