Guess what I saw!

On Sunday after dropping my girlfriend back to her place I saw a GT40!!!!!! replica. WOOOT it looked like to one that is used as a complete car shot in PF mag in the how to build you own section.

I must say what a sextactular looking car. Is this vehicle at the motor show and the owner just taking it for a spin or was i just one lucky SOB for spotting this one.

Re: Guess what I saw!

there is a place that does the replicas of GT40's and Shelby Cobras too I think at Yatala. I always drive past it when I get a pie. It is amazing how good they look out on the road.

Re: Guess what I saw!

yeah roaring forties sell kits and build them. Been to the shop and its impressive. A turn key one will cost approx 120k. rolling chassis around 30k?? anyway they are fantastic looking and sounding...

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....

Re: Guess what I saw!

I saw a dark blue one in Adelaide last week. Shocked and stunned. I'm glad I wasn't driving because I just couldn't help staring! I've never seen one up front before...
