    There are headlights in the car plus the special addition Jack Lucas kit with the Iron Duke option. Nice droop on the front end as well. I wonder if he built it?

    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.

    Know wonder He is selling it for 13,800 and still no reserve. The headlights are wrong the front grill wrong rearview mirrors wrong, convertible sloppy, interior looks bad, fog lights are to small geezzz. I fell sorry for the guy how buys. there is a lot of work to be put in.

    Any opinions on that first post. The guy said he just finished having the car built and now selling to buy a limo for his business. Why would you go through all that and sell it for a loss!?!? He said the car has no top but looks great. I'm waiting for pictures.

    I didn't get his name. He couldn't or didn't want to tell me what body kit it was. I'm not sure if it's worth a call back. Why do keep getting the same slimy feeling everytime I talk to one of these sellers/builders? Are there any honest people associated with these cars? (Excluding of course the people on this forum).

    DKOV:

    Sorry to steer you wrong, the kit in the photo was manufactured (If you can call that kit manufacturing) by Jack Lucas. He started in Canada then moved to Lakeland, Florida and built two kits. The one pictured on e-bay is a Lucas kit identified by the bent down nose on the passenger side and the clipped off hood corners plus the way the deck lid and tail panel are made. He eventually sold the molds to a British guy in Palm Harbor, Florida who sold the molds to Mike Vetter, Coco Beach, Florida who then sold them to a guy named Ken who was at the Daytona show last year with 3 cars. Somewhere along the way Mike Vetter and Ken did fix the nose and a few other flaws in the kit before Ferrari got after Vetter and he sold the molds to Ken. The cars built by Ken looked pretty good, since I knew the history.

    The Diablo molds Jack Lucas had eventually made there way to South Florida in the Ft. Lauderdale area and resurfaced after some extensive rework at a kit manufacturer in that area.

    He had a Blue Diablo at the Daytona show as well.

    Whew!

    I agree with need4spd, this car looks really sloppy. The interior looks really cheesy and the kit itself does not look right.
