Default Best supercar replicas

Saw this earlier, kind of interesting. I think Superformance does a 65 coupe too (just more $ than ffr).

in my eyes that is one of the most beautiful cars ever. I did a Tech inspection on one years ago and felt both honored and foolish be asked to approve it for our vintage race LOL

I thought it was a neat video, and most of those I hadnít been aware of before.

I keep looking at kit cars, but currently have three project cars now in various states of repair.......

I could do a kit car.....think about it, it would be freaking Christmas morning each time you went to the garage.....all new parts.....no stripped threads, no cleaning parts.....no sanding....it would be heaven

i am thinking of down sizing which means a smaller house....but not a smaller garage, maybe this will be the first project in the new garage, a daytona coupe with an LS 1 in it....and air conditioning

I see a lot of kits for sale discounted on the FFR forum. Sometimes the factory dumps kits below cost.

I will have to join that forum....
If i sell the MGA coupe I have the kit cost covered, along with some of the rest of it......and only will be missing engine/transmission/rear end, wheels/tires, and paint. i bet i can do the rest for 12 to 15k maybe even less

fellas i must admit i have been having unpure thoughts about selling the MGA coupe to build a daytona coupe.....the sale would cover at least 75% of the build

I want to downsize the house in the fall buy a new house build a new garage add a two post lift to lift to it and a daytona coupe could be its first project....all clean and new no dust or dirt....unpure thoughts are running through my head
