No reserve and may go cheap, maybe even parts cheap.
I think it would be a shame for it to go for parts.
Me, I would probably add lights and make it a street toy. :twisted:

Hey Justin,

If you're interested I've got a pick up and a trailer that will fit on. I'm not opposed to a road trip as long as you drive ;<) If the bids don't get much higher, this could be a deal.

Cheers,

I think the liquid cooled cylinder conversion impresses me the most.
If this were not so far away I would be scrounging up the dollars for it.
Not really another project as it's complete and a runner.

The first thing I noticed is the lack of cross bracing compared to a Locost. But still, a nice looking vehicle.

You're a dangerous man, Larry.

At that price, it'd probably still be worth every penny to just ship it too. Fortunately for me, while the bodywork is right up my alley, I'm much more of a street legal and two seats kind of guy...Especially seeing as how I'd have to liquidate my pile of welded tubing and parts (calling it a 'project' at this moment would be a bit too generous) to give it a home

Went $6,200 in the last few hours.
Not a parts price. :wink:

That's good. I really liked it, but there's no way I could have explained the name of it to my wife. I can just hear her ask, "You mean it crawls like Dean Martin after way too many?"

Cheers,

I bought this car so I figured I would share a few videos here. First off, the car is insanely fun! I've had it on track twice now and am really enjoying the experience.

I converted the car to street legal; driving it on the streets has been great - turns a lot of heads as you might imagine!
