Well it should be at the Mitty.
Just bought a trailer to get it there, so fingers crossed.

Alan,

Congrats for the completion of your ride. It has been a long haul to wait for such an artful sportscar, that has been well thought out.

Enjoy,

Calvin

Really rather fond of this. Think the builder went above and beyond.

Where di you find the serpentine belt system or was it on the motor when purchased, I would like to install a system on my next project.

Serpentine comes with it - it's an LS2.
This is a front runner setup - pulls it in a little.

So it didn't make the Mitty.
Getting close to the line though.

One thing to note - ABS sounds like a good idea until you have to bleed it and find you need a $2k scanner.
Next car is old school...

ABS? Definitely say more... I've often thought about it but figured it was too complex to find a system that'd work well.

Certainly did.

That's quite a set of lights you have there.
Hope you don't meet anyone whose method of parking I heard described... ' back up till you hear a crash, forward till you hear a smash, then walk to the kerb'.

Took this today. Gives you an idea how it looks sitting there.
Car needs a little more work to finish, but its getting there...

Looking at that photo, who would know what's under the hood, until it starts up. This is the most fun to see folks face, and thier puzzeled look as the beast starts up.

Car has a great looking stance and the tires aren't to wide, looks just right!

Well done from the builder and great vision from you Alan!!
