Since the picture links aren't working, I can't really tell, but isn't this the Vette that the guy built, than realized he couldn't fit it into it?

Yes, that would be the Vette.
You know, if you have enough disposable income hanging around to build this thing, one would think you'd always have enough disposable income to spend a couple months in a Weight Watcher's program along with buying a year's membership to a gym.

Since when does 'Weight Watchers' make you shorter?? Just because he can't fit in it doesn't mean he's a fatass. if you would have actually seen the original pic of him behind the wheel, you would know his head stuck up above the windshield a few inchs. Please try to have factual information instead of posting moronic remarks, ok?

Oh, get over it. I've seen pictures of the guy, and he's pretty big in every direction. If the issue he had was the windshield was too low, then maybe he should have used all his money to buy a tape measure prior to starting the project.
