I looked into this myself years ago and if you bought everything you need from the company it cost nearly $30,000 to build the car, which is a lot of money. Thats counting all the parts, the shipping everything. I would make sure you can get the other parts you need and determine the cost BEFORE you order the kit. In many instances you can buy a car already built for a lot less money than buying the kit and rounding up all the parts. I know a lot of people want to say I built it myself but sometimes it is just not economically feasible. I have seen beautiful T buckets for sale at NSRA (National Street rod Association) meets for 10 and 12 thousand dollars that the owner admitted having $25,000 invested. If you have never been to a NSRA meet, join the organization, get the magazine, and go to some of the meets. You will learn more about building a car, the costs, parts everything, than any other way I can think of.
