Custom Built Stinger Sports Car
I am at a loss. One of our readers Seth just emailed me the eBay auction for this thing. It is a Custom Built Stinger Sports Car and boy is it a piece of work! I want to be clear. I am sure a lot of time, effort, and money went into building this car, but I am happy to report that it appears THIS IS THE ONLY ONE!!!.
Im not sure what is even going on with this thing. The design is all over the place and as far as GT cars go it is really heavy at 3100 lbs. Not to mention judging by the interior photo it at least started life as a Fiero.
Here is what the auction says about the designer…
A retired Senior Engineering Associate/Car Fabricator from GM (proving grounds in Arizona) built this Concept Sports Car in his workshop and completed the final design over the last five years. The car can be tuned to race if desired. This Custom Sports Car has plenty of power and is fun to drive. The car really gets the attention of the public because of its unique design. I am selling this car because of my health. The right sports car enthusiast will understand the uniqueness of this design and can compare to other high performance sports cars, like cobra or corvette.
The specs are not to bad other than how heavy it is…

I really cant think of much else to say about this Custom Built Stinger Sports Car other than it could be one of the ugliest cars I have seen this year. And I have seen a lot of them. Right now the bidding is at $9100 and it does have a reserve. What do you think they are trying to get out of it, and what do yo think it will close at?
