OK, well I've seen on some car shows/hot rod shows of guys building a car from scratch, and in some cases, even being able to buy a new body for it and go from there. I was wondering, if cost and infrastructure were all dealt with, could someone "build" a complete, running car using parts ordered from the OEM? For example, could I "build" say, a 1991 Camry if I was able to get all the parts, the tools I needed and had technical blue prints and all that jazz? Would I be able to get that vehicle a VIN and licensed to legally drive it as if it were a Camry that came off the production line? Are there certain parts Toyota would not sell or simply couldn't?
I had a neighbor who built a "Shelby Cobra" from a kit. From what I saw of his complete build, the kit is designed so that a rhesus monkey could assemble it given enough time and patience. But a production car that has many more overall parts, plus designed to be built on an assembly line, would probably be extremely difficult to build as a kit.
