    • Have you seen other pics of the vehicles that people have made here? And some of the refurbished vehicles? Real mechanical talent. Thank you for sharing the pics.

      • Yes Yuri, I have been looking into this site since 2015 or so. I have seen some very amazing things as a result. I am constantly impressed by the levels of creativity that English/Russia has show-cased here.
