    Saw this on yahoo the other day and although it's very unique and looks cool you could take those pennies and melt them down and sell the copper and have a lot more money lol. Copper is at an all time high in salvage value. Also, that's a lot of weight, I wonder if the suspension also had to be redone to compensate for all that extra weight??? I like the look tho but I wouldn't park it any where public where it could be dismantled...
    You're traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That's the signpost up ahead - your next stop, the Twilight Zone!

I didn't want you to think I was spending the money on myself. That's why I posted a reply explaining where the SatFix Bux went.

Here's a little token of my gratitude for your generous donation. Please accept it in the spirit that its meant...

    Actually depending on the date of the pennies and the condition once removed some of them could be worth anywhere from 200-thousands of dollars just for one.
