    I Agree! That closeup Camaro shot is great!

    Wow, more great UK cars as usual!!! Gotta love the army of Lotus Esprit and Exige.

    The XJ220 and Bugatti Veyron are essentially the only sought after cars I can think of that I've never seen and inspected in person! I'm impressed! :D

    XJ220 up close is quite impressive you can see all the group C endurance racer influence in the design, there's a good two feet of nothing behind the engine & gearbox, just bodywork and the rear diffuser..
    There were two Veyrons at the last meet I didn't go to in Feb..


    (Hey Gary, haven't you got a corner carving Z-28 to put back together ??)

    Shhhhhhh!!! :crazy: I haven't revealed it anywhere yet, including my progress thread since I'm a month behind on it! :shy: Hey what better place to reveal it than the International section!

    The picture is from this previous Saturday! Note the door locks and center caps were missing in action there, I've got lots more to tweak once the rain subsides. Oh and new seats from Germany.

    Thanks!

    White VR4 wagon sounds cool! I want pictures of that....

    Oh... and the Camaro... its insanity!!! :eek: I kid you not. Having all that power and not having been able to utilize it with the old suspension was mad! Now that I've done everything from spherical bushings too fat rotors at once its insane. The only time I drove it during the whole project was right before SFCs/G-Brace installation and after, so at least I can tell you those made a huge difference ontop of everything else.

    Lets just say the stability at.... um.... shall we say, extrodinarily high speeds is like that of a Lamborghini compared to its previous state. :innocent:
