Don’t like the car that houses it. Also for $20k, one could buy a pretty interesting lawn ornament of a car and making it a cool, unique project.

Other than that, sure it’s pretty cool.

The car that houses it is awesome. The fucked up proportions make it ridiculous.

It also looks like a terribly annoying table on which to shoot pool.

At one point in my life, I played a lot of pool. I even played in many 9 ball tournaments.

Like Clyde said, I would not enjoy this table at all. Nice conversation piece, but useless otherwise. 20K would get me a nice table, and an in-ground pool!

I dont think $20K gets you even half of an in ground pool

Maybe not in Austin, but in South Carolina it can. Due to how close I am to the lake, my property isn't really level enough for one. If I HAD to have a pool, it might cost me 20K for the earth and retaining wall it would need to construct one
