My neighbor used to build hot rods. He especially liked to work on them early in the morning when I was trying to sleep. Fortunately, he died before I went completely berserk and did something nasty.

Any car you built from scratch would likely cost way more
than a new off the shelf car. Er, unless you raided a junk yard
for used parts. LOL

There has got to be more to this than the one sentence quoted in the OP.
The Full-Article link leads to a small photo and the same text, nothing more.
How do you get it to play the video?

I'll bet that the EPA goons are salivating over the prospect of imposing their rules on Mr. Privette.
