Mr Enzo Ferrari is rolling in his grave, rightfully so, has this redneck never heard of chassis engineering?

^What's wrong with they came up with? It looks like it's got a pretty solid tubular frame back there.
These guy's took parts from a totaled Ferrari and combined them with some american steel and the result is both unique and spectacular. I think Mr. Ferrari would like it, after all they did build the breadvan. This car is like a hot rod tribute to that car in a sense.

I was thinking the same thing, no flex points for the piping, even with solid engine/transmission mounts there is always some vibration you would want to isolate.

well if you actually look at it, there is a rubber flex pipe right at the intake manifold, and where the piping meets the body it's not welded, it's a flexible sleeve, and since they've started the vehicle on many occasions and nothing has broken it should be fine, and besides this is more likely a showcar than anything else.
