The story behind @robdyrdeks Rogue Status car is pretty funny. I was a new partner @allspeedcustoms and we wanted to build a car that would stand out. Rob also wanted a 69 Camaro but was investing in all types of things you see him doing now so the budget was way smaller than what was needed. Matter of fact Rob said.. Look, take this 911 turbo, sell it, and use the money to build the car. Well the market for 911's tanked and I sold it for way less than was hoping. We found a clean body and ordered the parts. 3/4 into the build.. The money was gone. I couldn't deliver... And Rob was pretty bummed. So I dipped into my pocket and spent about 20k of my own dough to make sure I completed the project. We got it done and delivered the car. He was stoked... But we over built it. Lol. It was RAW. 666 rwhp, no traction control, no anti lock brakes, just a pro charged 383 and a gas pedal. Car was real light as well. It was a little too aggressive compared to what Rob was expecting LOL. It did put a huge smile on his face.. And even paid me the money I put in to finish it.(He felt bad for me!!)lol. Anyway... It was a vision of mine and he fully supported that vision and I'm always grateful to him for helping me realize my sometimes bazaar ideas. Rendering by @carsbykris.
