Dont ask, just enjoy!!

Just in case someone wants a SWEET AMG 500SL replica made from a FABULOUS CHRYSLER LEBARON CONVERTIBLE . Anyways, ask him for more pictures and whatnot and put them on your desktop or something. Seeing this car everyday on your desktop will fo sho put a smile on your face.

ENJOY PEOPLE

ps. look its sweet, if one of your rims decides to crack and nearly kill you while youre cruising along the highway at 53mph (max speed) you will have an extra one to keep on humiliating yourself some more.

compare it with a real one and you'll see that the lines up front arent right.

Pretty neat job..

But this has got to be the smallest brake disc i've ever seen. I once had a moped with larger brake disks!

This kit (and another based on a Mustang platform) appeared on the scene when the R129 style was still fetching $90K and up.

It seems pointless now that beautiful REAL examples can be acquired for around the mid $20Ks...

I don't mind the kit cars that are building a car from the ground up e.g. the cobra's because that was what the original basically was. But something like this or turning a Pontiac Fiero into a Ferrari just seems dumb. Drop 20k to make a piece of crap look like a 100k car instead of dropping 20k on a cool original older car. Don't make no sense

Especially when you can get a nice 107 these days for 8 grand. I'd rather hang myself than drive that thing. I think the only kits I'm interested in these days are the Lotus 7s. I saw a nice one at a car show a little while ago. It was one nifty little car. You can pretty much put a real race car together for around 10k, even less if you use junk yard parts. You can use about 20 different cars for donors and use cheap riceburner drivetrains, and get a car that will do 0-60 in 4 secs, using a four cylinder engine.

The other kits, for the kind of money and work you have to put into them it just doesn't seem to make much financial sense. I've know people who have spent 30k putting cobras together. You can buy lightly used vette for that.

Yeah Kirk I'd love to get one of those someday also. Their a little death trap but are probably really fun to drive. It woud be something to run one of those up into the triple digits!

Someone should email George (from Seinfeld) and let him know about this nifty vehicle.

Iggy

PS if it was previously owned by Jon Voight a great plus for a fast sale......
