How crazy is this? The list of mods on this car go on for miles, and there is a ton of rice strapped to this thing... but there's also a 536 HP 2JZ under the hood. Videos of the auction show what looks to be nothing more than a teenager behind the wheel of this thing. Where the heck did the money for this come from, and why in the hell is he selling it? It's an interesting auction, but so many red flags.

The list of mods is absolutely crazy.

rebuilt title. interesting car but seems like a money pit. not sure why they are selling. Also, seller says he "guessed" on registration mileage and doubled the actual value? weird.

Yea, lots of sketchy stuff going on in that auction. From what I can tell the rebuilt title accident was prior to work, but who knows. Also, the owner "doesn't know" when the intercooler got dented. Seems like a good bit of accountability is out of the window with this car, and the bid website doesn't care much to ask questions. No telling what could be wrong with this thing.
