This has been offered before a few times. Maybe a year now.
Too 'different' for the UK, and it's a leftie which doesn't help.
[www.ebay.co.uk]?
I'd say it's perhaps 8k overpriced. Unless he gets very lucky.

Anyway, I've seen the car, we followed its creation on the TRR UK forum, and despite the somewhat incoherent description, it's well built by a very competent chap who has owned it some years and also owns a Corvette.

If I were comparing it with that black one that's on offer in Georgia atm, this is way better, imho. It has proper lighting, a heater, windscreen wipers, it's a real car not a toy.
Although it has the same drawback of a non-overdrive box.

Anyway, there it is.

the front end bumperettes and grillework are incredibly unattractive just my opinion

Not only your opinion. Wouldn't say I dislike it, but I'm not overkeen.
In fact, it was the body mods that really got people steamed on the TRR forum.
I've noticed the same on 6-Pack - most people really don't like body mods.
I'm rather in that camp - I always think standard cars with no bumpers look, well, just wrong.

Urrrgh.

The 6-Pack discussions, not just this car, but pretty much any car with body mods gets the thumbs-down on 6-Pack. I can't remember where the thread is, it was a long time ago, sorry.

On the TRR forum, the same attitude prevails.
Now, Kel - for that is his name - built his car perhaps 4/5 years ago, and on the TRR forum I can only search back in members' posts for two years. Also, in the forums I can't search for TLAs, so Kel and TR6 are verboten. Also 327 and 350.
However, searching for Corvette gets me these;

Some of the picture links are broken, but keep scrolling down.

As you can see, he's been a long time not selling it. Try an offer. It's very well finished, a nice useable car.

Ken,

6-Pack link: [www.6-pack.org]

They have an "upgrade" section just for cars like this. Some pretty nice cars there.

I wouldn't say there were too many people got steamed - having actually read the thread.
But it's still not to my taste.

Now the TR register otoh...
They didn't like mine much either :D
