Do they or will they have the appeal of the "aussie" cars.
Horses for courses, but they're not for me for a variety of reasons.
Firstly, it's the GT you buy because you can't afford the aussie GT. No shame there, but you will carry that mindset as long as you own the car. From day one you've settled for second best.... if you're honest with yourself.
Secondly, to satisfy the purists, and I guess to retain it's so called value, you can't modify it. Everybody wants original.
Lastly, everybody knows the Aussie GT and can relate to it. Only the true diehards can tell a fake from the real thing as it cruises down the highway. For this reason, to my line of thinking anyway, the SA GT will always look like a bitsa car and the average knob jockey in the street will think you have the mock up instead of the real deal.
If it was me, and I've owned 6 replicas and a genuine Phase II, I would spend the same amount of money on a really nice replica. This whole GT thing is a crock in my opinion.
No offence intended to anyone, just my 2c worth.
