my dad and i are debating on building this. what you see there is basically it besides the chassis and a corvair front end but my dad wants to use a jaguar front or something completely different. i know the picture isn't great still messing with jpeg save settings and i uploaded through imageshack because my flickr uploadr wasn't working and was impatient haha.

You should have a lot of fun building that. Be sure to take build pics & you can make a book after. See my sig.

No comments on the photos, other than that actually looks like an old Valkyrie kit (loosely based on the Ford GT-40). Check out these links for more info:

Anyway, you and your dad are in for A LOT of work if you build it. But, it's sure to be a great bonding experience. And DO keep a build journal (web-based photo-journal of the build).

we are still not sure if we are going to build for a couple of reasons, a. im struggling to make enough money topay off stuff and fuel my photo addiction and B my dad is so busy working as a mechanic himself he has neither the time or energy for this project yet haha.
