I so badly want to build/buy this car with every spec you've built it with. This is an amazing street rod!

If you don't mind answering, what did the build run you sans motor/trans cost?

Thanks in advance for your response.

I have been itching to build one of these too - ever since I saw one at the NSRA Nats in Louisville. What surprised me the most is that the kit (costs $20,000) includes everything except: engine, trans, wheels, tires, and paint. Upholstery - included. Gauges - included. Wiring - included. Exhaust - included. Lighting - included. Amazing! If I had not already started my '33 sedan, I would have definitely built one of these!

I'm sure ours is well over $100,000 mainly due to all the one off hand made parts we built.

The one offs.. Those are beautiful. I've seen the hole punched foot rest that you all fabbed up. That's what I am also inquiring about.

That must be so much fun. I have tried, I have made my car handle better and spent a little time on it and had fun. But not even close, not even on the same planet as something like that, it must be wild to drive.

I am impressed with the way the car handles, but am kind of blown away at the $100,000 figure. Making the jump from around $40,000 ($20,000 kit plus $10,000 engine plus a generous $10,000 for paint, wheels and tires, and tranny) to $100,000 car, that's some expensive handling. Especially considering you didn't change the suspension geometry, just made the components maybe lighter and prettier.

Here's what apparently finished second to the '33 in at least one event and won Pro Truck outright, Bob MacGregor's '69 or '70 (depending on who you ask) C-10, Hellboy:
