THIS CAR WAS MY DAILY DRIVER FOR THE PAST YEAR SO IT HAS BEEN DEPENDABLE.
This replica was hand built in 1985 (33 years ago) using a 1985 Chevrolet Chevette donor car. All parts other than the body specific items are from that vehicle so those repair parts can still be found on line and some in auto parts stores. As you can see from the pictures this vehicle is in amazing condition for 33 years old.
It is a real show stopper. Everywhere it is driven it is admired be people. I have been asked and allowed people to have pictures taken in this car. I have been asked many questions by many people. Lots of thumbs up, smiles, waves and WOWS are received.
If you want a unique car that is loved and admired by almost everybody this is the car for you.
