Hi all,

I agree its a very cool build. I saw this car in person when I was at the Nos2days. I must have spent and hour just looking at all the work they had done. Its been regularly featured on the past few issues of Nostalgic Hero.


One of the many fav parts about the car

Amaizing work done but what the point of it most likely this car will never see street or track due to its uniqness.

LOL that ziptie kinda killed the mood after looking at the first few pics. I'm sure they will address that and probably just rushed to get it out to the show...hopefully

its cool but stupid at the same time, will cost a freakin fortune and it will spend the rest of its live on a trailer or on a piece of red carpet in some show. there are better ways to show of what you can do as a company.

Sweet jesus! That is impressive. Over the top for anything I could ever see myself wanting to do, but still amazing. I'm jealous of the people who got to attend the Nostalgic 2 days.

Looking at the suspension bit you would think that the level of welding would match the level of effort put into the rest of the car...don't get me wrong I love the car but mig welding on a car of that effort should be tig
My .02

Ahh yes missed those welds on the first time looking at the pics. Even more so a mood killer now. :cry: I hope they clean all that stuff up and actually drive the car around/track it. Would suck if it became an abandoned project and just sat around on jack stands for the next show...but there is always hope!

The car should see some track time once completed. Kinda hard to see but off to the left against the wall there were some fat meaty tires.
