Yah, whatever:) I think it is funny that the whole issue is that Smyth himself is talking shit about the Spyder, yet somehow they are saying that I am a hater. ??? I was following his build because it is an interesting idea, but it turned out to have freakish proportions. It looks like someone took a four-door Jetta and tried to make a mid-engine roadster out of it... Wait... Anyway, I just thought the voice of reason should interject and say, "Ummmm... The Spyder is ugly? Have you SEEN your car???" That's alright, I wasn't going to be buying one of his kits anyway. And I can see why he got booted out of Factory Five...

Looks like the Spyder in the picture has stock wheels on the front, and something else on the back.

yah, kinda funny to talk crap about the spyder when your own design looks like a spyder-celica hybrid on a jetta frame...

Mateo Largo;836271 That Smyth guy is a knuckle head. I think he has a complex because his brother does cool stuff at Factory Five and he is making pieces of shit out of Jettas... [/QUOTE said:
I looked at his build, and came to the conclusion that the old adage is wrong.

With enough lipstick even a pig can be made to look fairly good. :lol:

The question that comes to my mind is: Why do it?

Just go buy a Spyder.

That is all.

your post was deleted what did you say?
Wow. I am amazed that I got deleted. Really all I said was that if you are in business selling "dozens" of cars to make a living, it doesn't make sense to ridicule a similar car and alienate possible buyers. I did say something along the lines of "people in glass houses not throwing stones" because his Frankencar had some freaky proportions:) And I did say that my car would run circles around his and not fall apart:) But I certainly wasn't abusive (yet...).

I have tons of respect for his brother. Factory Five puts out a great product at a great price and fills a cool niche. The Smyth name is really the only reason I began following his project on Facebook. Unfortunately, this brother lacks a few key ingredients: taste, tact, skill, and talent...

Wow, it looks like he is trying to turn a Jetta into a Celica/MR2 only fat and ugly. That's just my opinion, maybe some people love it, but he really shouldn't throw rocks.

So your posts were deleted? I read all of them, with some amusement. You did nothing wrong. There was nothing inappropriate in what you said. Obviously someone didn't like you calling him out.

Never engage in a war of wits with an unarmed man. That is where you made your mistake. :lol:
