Jim,

I remember you saying this one has a lot of cool mods on it. Care to share any of them? What kind of fun performance stuff have you done to it?

As many others I've alw

As many others I've always sort have wanted to design a car so the things we put on this one are:
Massive cooling capacity. Enough to sit at idle on a 100 degree day with the ac on and not overheat.
Enough charging capacity to keep the battery up with all of this running.
Electric windows.
Hydraulic remote opening gull wing doors.
AM/FM/CD
glove box/luggage storage.
0-240mph speedo.
A GT car derived from a real race car. One that can be driven and enjoyed.
An engine with lots of low rpm torque.
As we put it back together I'll post more photos.

It's almost a shame to hid

It's almost a shame to hide all these beautiful parts behind a body, wheels, etc. Must be like driving a new car when you're finished. Fantastic work!

Guys like Joe Kern and his tea

Guys like Joe Kern and his team at Custom Fab and Welding are a dying breed. JRV ain't bad either.

We designed and built remote operating gull wing doors that are controlled by these valves. If the system freezes in the up position we made a tool that can release the doors and is accessible through cockpit.
Note suspension parts. We've plated as much as possible to avoid corrosion.

Toooooo COOOOOOOL!!!

Jim,


Toooooo COOOOOOOL!!!

Jim,

When you are finished with these sorts of overhauls, do you test out the car in the track? I'm going under the assumption that you can't really take these cars on a "shakedown" run on public roads. It's not like taking a 360 for a spin after an oil change if you know what I mean.

Car looks absolutely stunning. Car nuts and racing fans thank you for preserving a bit of history for us to enjoy.

Cheers

Sometimes we do, sometimes we fire them up and hit the highway.
