Yep your correct. Must have been dreaming. Or wishing!

One of the neat things about the inline 12 cyl was the block was cast aluminum in 1914!

. I didn't realize most of the 500 or so Kaiser Darrin's were made right here... someday I want a 1950's Scarab like this, beautiful lines/styling:

boothboy Not quite the story on the Woodill Wildfire. The first Wildfire was built on a custom frame made by Shorty Post. Bill Tritt of Glasspar created the fiberglass body. Howard Miller built the car. Willys Speedster suspension components were used after all Woody Woodill did own a Dodge- Willys dealership. They used a Willys 226ci Hurricane engine with tri-power, a hot cam, and headers.
After it was completed Woodhill got Willys interested enough to build six cars before Kaiser bought Willys. Kaiser had just introduced their Darrin Sports car and had no use for the Wildfire.
Woodhill then took his design and marketed as a body kit utilizing a 1939 Ford chassis and running gear.
Arguably the first production fiberglass car.
