Thread: What to build next? Or whats your next dream project?

    What to build next? Or whats your next dream project?

    I am going to Knott's for insperation this year. I just sold the Cobra, if the 308 sells then I will have ~40K or so to spend on the next project. I simply can't make up my mind at this point, I called the guy distributing the Attack and they are no longer avaliable in kit form, I like the indycycle but don't know if that is ever going to pass muster in California.

    so far I have owned a

    356 Vintage GONE
    917 Laser GONE
    600hp Shell Valley Cobra GONE
    88 Mera with Some OEM parts GONE SOON
    Thunderranch Riot.
    A few other little projects here and there that I finished off for people.

    The riot is the only one that is not been finished it does run and drive though. I am leaning towards sending Tom a big check for finishing the riot with the tube chassie and a mid engine rotary but I will never in a million years get a dime of it back when I sell it.

    I would like to build on a more modern chassie this time, a 355 in correct lenght on a MR2 would be nice but I can't even find a US based company at this point that makes a decent MR2 355 kit in the unstretched lenght.

    So putting this out for you guys. What would you build next, after your current project is done and fully shaken down.

    I'd go with either a Diablo with tube chassis or a GT-40.

    Well, you haven't built a 500K yet...

    All kidding aside, I keep thinking about build a AWD Sterling. I cannot think of any AWD non 4x4 kit cars being built. I have seen some modified Subaru WRXs from England that looked like the new Shelby. The other thought I had was to rip appart a Prius or hybrid Accord and build it into an XK120 kit.

    Still looking for the perfect kit myself. I love the Diablos and wouldn'd mind something in a 355 or 360. Just need to decide then try to keep the wife from complaining, hehe. I like the Cobras, but tend to prefer a more modern looking automobile. Anybody got a Ford GT90 kit out there...I wish.

    Yep,
    Just check ebay, you can get one that cheap. But be prepared to spend @ $30,000.00 plus restoring it. They are notorious for rusting out, even the hanger queens.
