In PA we would need to cover the engine somehow - to, sides and most of the rear (as long as the belt was covered). So that might ruin the lines a little bit..

Neat little kit, though!

The design is not my taste, but 200+ people have pre-ordered it.

Thanks for the link to the FB site. I'm hoping this one makes it to some measure of production that gives Smisek a sense of success. I think it is very cool and ambitious as hell. Cranking out an original design kit car on your own? Awesome. Go Man Go!

He's pulled a body and given the molds to a friend of his to... Hopefully produce them. Fingers crossed.

The Stark molds are now in Washington State. Rob is building two bodies. One for him (Stark #2) and one for a plug to make production style molds off of.

I really like the lines of this kit. It's just way out of my budget to own one, except in my dreams. Maybe some day...

Here it is last year at the 2017 Classic:

With the color change, I wonder if this is the second car?

You are correct though, the Facebook page and website for the car are both gone. Too bad when there appeared to be a lot of people interested in a new kit. Crying or Very sad
