1966 the original Shrike GT kit car Posted: Tue May 15, 2018 7:18 pm     Views: 217      Rating: 10

I'm searching for any surviving example of my father's design the Shrike GT. Only 4 were made when the company Phoenix Automotive failed and partners went separate ways. There are rumours they were destroyed out of anger, jealousy and ignorance (Can anyone imagine destroying a unique car design with only 4 made nowadays?)but I still hold out hope to find one - my father Don Haskin's legacy. Was the Shrike GT destroyed because it was too good looking? Most kit cars were an ugly copy of a Ford GT or Ferrari Dino with BAD proportions and an ugly windshield. Was it failed business partners that were mad or other kit car makers trying to bury it? While we ponder the question I'm still asking all car lovers to keep an eye out for a survivor and PLEASE contact me -Thanks! Dave Haskin (Bushwhack Dave)
