    There is an error in the title, in the article it says that car has diesel inline-four while in the title it says that it has diesel inline-six.

    This has NOPE written all over it.
    “10″ drum brakes all around.” NOPE
    The wiring (engine bay especially) NOPE
    The tape literally holding the transmission tunnel together. NOPE
    The cheap ass cherry bomb they couldn’t be bothered to weld in. NOPE
    This isn’t even half assed, it’s more like 1/8 assed. Fucking death trap is what it is.
    Here’s a tip. That shit they do on roadkill ISN’T supposed to be aspirational.

    A Falcon with a Mercedes diesel and 5-speed would definitely be appealing, but this one is more than a little too rough around the edges.
