Can you say "smokin crack"? I think that his method for % complete was to throw a dart at a dart board and it landed on 90 so he thought that sounds about right. Doesn't look too bad though
It doesnt look that bad... But... photo's can lie.

Maybe he got it reversed - maybe he meant 90% to go! Or maybe by his standard it is 90% done! LOL!

That car IS 90% complete ... if you're talking about building a car from the ground up starting with nothing (step 1: mine the ore out of the earth, step 2: smelt the ore with carbon to form sheet steel, etc.)

Could be a really nice car... only 80% to go. Does this guy thinks 90% of the parts present means the car is 90% complete.

I don't know what you folks are complaining about...heck, even the top is there!! heeheehee Guy(NH)
