Heffner? No, I was talking about Hennessey being the idiots, they've never properly designed anything. All of their car projects are all talk and no trousers. If anything Heffner overbuilds everything, but that's good.

 

 

Hell yes. Prettiest wagon since the P18000es. Go for it.

I'm confused by your post there is it Heffner or Hennessey who are the idiots in charge of the rotating time bomb?


And now class I have more questions as you were so helpful with the Fisker.

I was riding along and decided to get off and walk the bike for a few click's in search of a decent pizza place (there is only one around me and I was nowhere near it). As I was crossing the road this yellow sporty thingy pulls up  making a way too familiar noise. At first glance I think some loon has gone and bastardized a Super 7 kit and dropped a 328 motor in it. As it chortles and rolls around the corner it becomes all to apparent this is some horse of a very different colour. Bulbous without having the CAD/CAM look to it, slightly larger than a Super 7, Scud crest on the right side front wing and what appeared to be the original metal Ferrari nameplate. It was in view for too short a time to pull out a camera.

Give us a clue - what general era did it appear to be? 50-60s? 70-80s? Newer? When you say it looked like a Super 7, do you mean that the front end was almost open-wheel? We've already established I know very little about the various Ferrari flora & fauna, but I can't think of anything other than a Ferrari F1 car that has wheels outboard of a center fuselage? Magick??

Looks brand spankin new. Front open wheel with 7 type fenders. Too well turned out to be a kit car, really, this looked like a professional build and nothing I can recall ever coming from the SCUD's shops. First time I've seen it, so I'll be on the lookout for it hopefully with a camera in hand next time.

No idea, but there are literally hundreds of capable car shops in the USA that can build a car like this:





Yes, it has a 3l V12.

Closer but open cockpit and not as buck rogers looking up front. This is going to annoy me big time and really I'm not even a roadster fan. Gimme a cobra lemans over the open cockpit any day of the week.

It's starting to sound like an Ariel Atom...

Hut - if nothing else, your mystery car did enable me to find a cool gallery from a SoCal photographer:

Man, I love that Mirage GT (Gemballa kit for the Carrera GT). Gorgeous car.

Did you notice the pics of the cars on the trucks? Tsk, tsk... So many trailer queens...

Here's a car I don't think we've talked about:

Very late 70s - early 80s!

The M1 is a very good GT car, but it's no supercar. It was styled much more radically than what it actually was.

 

Still, it's a very well-engineered car for its time period.

I love it, I do, but I'm not in a rush, I'm waiting for the right one (and in motorsport Group 4 livery). Values on them haven't moved very much in 3 years.
