Default Why do NZ'ers get such great car opportunities

Unfinished project opportunity in NZ if anyone has a contact to import.

Some work still required.

Oh wow! It's 4WD as well. Hopefully this isn't what OZVENOM had in mind when he was talking about building an all wheel drive Cobra!

I'm impressed that this guy took the time to replicate another car that he'd seen. It takes real guts to start on something knowing that this car is the outcome...

Being a Kiwi I'll have a go, though legless might have put a bit of extra in on some parts!

** Hey look at his mate!
Yes, Yes No, nothing suspicious about this item,not having you on! If you have been bitten by the Cobra disease this car is a ten out of ten, yes?
Will need a quick squirt of pesticide in case there is a Katipo Spider ( NZ's only poisonous creature) aboard. Just make sure the chilli bin ( Esky, Ice Box ) is full of beer etc and get the cousins and friends/mates around for a few cans of beer and some fish and chips for an afternoons work to get the car finished. Imagine doing the ton ( 100mph ) down Milford Road ( one of Aucklands boy racer streets?), just like cruising down route 66 in the USA, sweet as!....

After translating that I can almost understand it better than the proper english version!!!, and whatever time Legless has spent in the shaky isles to gain his lingual skill's must have been a blast!

I got the first part and bits and pieces but totally lost on the spider. lol



I think that might be a concept that was dropped for the American Death Races movies. I believe there was suppose to be a railgun prototype ( tech stolen from the US Navy) in the big opening but have no idea about those hood scoops.
