    Stories as a Kitcar owner

    I'm asking you guys with the Car to share your stories with the rest of us, so we can get some incentive to buy/build or continue with our dream car projects. 8)

    Re: Stories as a Kitcar owner

    Well, although it has gotten a little old now, whenever your talking to a friend about your project, the responses are quite neat.

    "YOUR BUILDING A CAR! WOW! What kind?"

    "A Fierari"

    "Your building A Ferrari!? Holy sh*t!"

    "Not a Ferrari, A Fierari"

    Then you have to go through the whole long story about how they needed a replica 355 for the movie the rock, and how they started selling them, and how they got sued, etc, etc...

    Ok, I'm a sucker.... 1st cruise down the Queensway(Ottawa) this biker shows up on my left, full leathers. He downshifts 3-4 gears and is nodding his head(vigoursly). Yeah, yeah, I know what he wants, but I not about to get beat 1st day out. So, I downshift a gear, nod at him, touch the gas and watch him go....casually shift back up and settle in to cruise. He!He! Just learnt the 1st thing about driving a "Ferrari". You don't have to prove you're fast, you're already "FAST"!!! Next, comes along some bigbore Chevelle, same move, he launches, and I shift up and start cruising again. Now comes the best.... Middle lane, look over to my left, and here's this gorgeous 20something girl, half out of her boyfriend's car, camera in hand trying to take a pic!!!(at 60 mph, love it!!) I throw her a kiss, and step on it . Great feeling for a 1st ride!!!
    there ya go!

    Your right Sandy, it is allot of fun driving our kit cars around. Just seeing people's reactions to the cars, is price less... When I lived in Cape Breton(NS), I had my Ferrari 328 and they use to call me Magium PI... I could'nt even leave the car alone long enough to pay for gas, with out having a few people standing around the car looking... and woundering if it was real or not.... and now with the Countach it is worse.... But the attention is satifying knowing you built something that people envy you ....

    Hey KitCarGuy, looks great!, is that the 328 that has the dash that looks similar to the 300zx. *If so did you buy it as a kit?

    You got it easy, I would think finding a rust fiero donor is a lot eaiser in Vancouver then Toronto ;D

    That dash looks very similar to V8Archie's dash, which I believe spyder is using. (http://www.v8archie.com/parts.htm).

    Who manufactured that 328 kit?

    Re: Stories as a Kitcar owner

    Ari, I lived out here on Vancouver Island for 2 yrs and I saw allot of realy nice cars here. Your right the cars take a long time to rust here. I supose thats why there are so many old cars here that look like they were new out if the show room...
    and the weather is not bad either... We were in a deep freeze last week I think it got down to 0'C. I just noticed that the tulups are breaking ground and are about 3" high. In three weeks we will be cutting the grass... That means I have to start working overtime in order to get the car finished....

    I bought that kit from Fiero Conversions in Windsor and I would NEVER go back to them again!!

    Kitcarguy, very nice 328. I originally chose Ferrari Yellow for my Koenig but my family talked me into Rossa Red. I love em both. Oh, but the stories of producers ripping off the constructors.... that feeling of trust, just disappears and never returns...(CK3). :-X
