I don’t know if it’s just me, but I love seeing pictures of cars that are in various stages of assembly, even more than the finished item. I just love seeing that raw metal, withÂ missing panels showing off the mechanical underpinnings, the car sitting low to the ground with an abundance of tyre tread on display due to lack of guards/fenders, and the combination of factory parts with hand-made additions. It’s that very love of tough-looking yet incomplete cars that drew me to this build, with it’s “minimal metal/maximum tyre” appearance. The builder of this AMX has actually graced these pages before, being the man behind the $5,000 budget Mustang (another great thread for those of you who’ve never seen it).

metal work is top notch on this build and experience of the builder is evident in his welding. I can’t help think it’s a little over-built using very thick gauge steel then boring holes to keep weight down (why not use thinner gauge?). I keep comparing the metal engineering with Nigel Petrie’s drift ute build with his minimalistic (thin gauge) use of steel and made it reliably work. Fantastic build tho and picked up lots of tips on this one.
