Badly photoshopped.

On what are you baizeing that assumption?

It probably felt that something wasn't quite right about it. I guess that cushions the blow of a chopped up Fiesta though?

Anyway, moving on from pool / snooker jokes

I think he should probably have just bought a Reliant Scimitar?

Im glad we are taking a break from that.

In regards to your question, you cant get Scimitars in Australia.

I see what you did there, bit of a trick shot. 

I imagine it would have been cheaper to import one than to do that to a Capri?

It was probably done when Capris were going for 500 quid. 1000 quid would get you a minter.

Looks like a HOT DOG to me, with onions on the top. !!??.

:-D With a 27 litre Rolls Royce Meteor under the bonnet it'd be quite a lot to bite off and chew! I don't fancy the fuel bill  much either!

How many custom cars get their own Wikipedia entry?

I don't think either are likely to win any beauty contests though. I wouldn't fancy taking it into a corner too quickly either!
