    At speedorama, spoke to some 4ari builders - info

    I went to speedorama today and got the chance to speak to some "professional" kit car builders about many things, including Tony Sousa(The person I bought my kit from, and who cheated me), manufacturers of Kits, prices, etc...

    The first thing was that it turns out Tony has a reputation in the kit car community as "Tony Bologne" - In other words, he's always full of Bologna. He has never done anything properly or on time, and the Toronto V8 conversion company (Hi-tech development or something) refuse to do business with him because of this.

    Here are some pictures I took of the Testarossa they had on display:
    Image 1 | Image 2

    Speaking of High tech development, they seem a little fishy too. I spoke to a guy who told me he was one of two owners, and asked him for a price on Stainless Steel brake lines. He told me they were $230. I then went to Race Tech's booth and asked about their prices, they quoted me $225. Because the Hi-tech guy dedicated some time to talk to me about their kit car which was on display (He says 355 body kits go for around $9000 CAN), I decided to give him my business, and went back to buy the lines. The guy I spoke to was busy, so instead I went to another guy at the booth, who told me lines were $280. I told him that the owner told me that they were $230. He told me he was the owner, and the other owner doesn't know what he's talking about. I decided not to give them my business afterall for pretty obvious reasons.

    Here is another cool picture of a Viper with my friend, Issac, in the background.

    Unfortunately I don't, people were all crowded around it and I couldn't get any clear shots... What I do have though is the picture posted at the company's webpage.

    Ari,
    About your brake lines. I'm not sure if there is anything special about them, i.e. different length, but I bought mine from Classic Tube http://classictube.com/frames/4/index.html Their prices are good and the quality is excellent. Also, a friend of mine bought his stuff from Inline Tube http://www.inlinetube.com/ Good place to work with.
