    My 89 was popular with some amply equipped passerby that stopped by for a photo or three at the large auto show.
    It then went up for auction.

    You have posted some fascinating pics over the years of really impressive work-in-progress on this car. Other than the one pic above from the auto show, can you post more pics of the finished car? I'd love to see more after following this thread for so many years.

    There she is!
    Most times the crowds were ten deep. A TON of work went into it. A few things learned from the previous build and that is these 89's dont fit on standard car trailers so this 89's lower scoops came off to facilitate easy loading. Not everyone has a flat deck tow truck at there beck and call. Some other neat features such as seperate hood and removable front clip..steel inner frames, fenderwells, full steel firewall...new front clip repaint for the new owner + new canopy glass etc etc. A Massive project overall Not something I will ever build again. Good luck to other builders of this particular model.

    I love this car. I have always wondered:

    1) how does it drive?
    2) what is the front view visibility like?
    3) what is the rear view visibility like?

    I can image driving down the road and seeing this.....I'd probably crash from staring too much......"I promise honey, I wasn't looking at another woman."
