About “Gothic Smurf Mobile”

Brought this car fab 7 2009.with an blown engine.188k miles on body and trans.new engine i paid $300 for with 70k miles.i didnt plan on doing any mods to it cause i figure i have it for a few months and sale for an car i wanted.but my friends had parts for it and so i started to modified it,well 1 thing leads to another to another to what it is now....i do all the work myself unless its something that requires an tool i do not have like exhaust,it is installed by an an local shop near me.it is an custom exhaust 2 1/4 from the header back .it is an cat back exhaust..with an high performance fartcan muffler.no ebay cheapo's.
most of the parts i buy are used,cant really afford brand new parts and some parts are damage, so with used its not an total loss like body kits if it gets damage which it does alot.i wont be losing 1000's some dollors,only a few hundred.

just recently sanded it down and primied it all.8 cans of primier and about 22 hours into that

as of now.with new parts i had replaced,and modified parts like body kit.rims,audio etc,,,,i have a little over 3400 dollors into it,if i brought all new i be close to 6k in parts.

it is still under construction.and will be for quite some time yet,
so check back for updates and new progress pictures

About “Betty”

Oh man! This car is a dream! It corners, it accelerates fast and it has a good top speed. She is named Betty after the Creedance song Black Betty. It was the first song I heard in it after I bought it so I took it as her telling me her name. I have raced it against a variety of different cars. I have won and lost, but mostly won. The one that stands out in my mind was when I was just cruising down the highway in Fort Worth Texas and a Vette got next to me and blinked his lights to race. I actually beat him in the traffic for about five miles until my exit came up. I know my car is fast but it just goes to show you, the driver is what makes the car perform. And yes there was traffic, he tried a bunch of lane changing and got caught up. lol!
