BMW Turned Rat Rod

This BMW 2002. Crafted by Atlanta Performance and Fabrication, the car actually started life as a running, driving round-taillight 2002 that owner John Lee had owned since high school.

Crafting a frame from spare tubing, the suspension went together using coilovers from a C5 Chevrolet Corvette, a steering rack from a Cobalt SS and control arms from a derelict Panoz racer. 

APF keeps the lights on with Corvette modification and small-block conversions, power comes from an LS1 V8 bolted to a TH350 automatic gearbox. Custom fabbed headers and you have the beast above. Head over to the StanceWorks forums for the full build thread.
