To all: there is not a car out there that you will not have problems with, there is not a car out there that is absolutely perfect.........

Street Beast's business and sales tactics not withstanding, I think that those of us who have a problem with Street Breasts designs, that problem is centered around their 33-34 and Vicky, along with the one piece body concept. The Willys and Cobra aesthetically aren't bad at all (the Cobra is stretched a little but that doesn't distract from its lines much). The one piece body works well for Cobras and the like but when your talking street rods with fenders that "hang out there" in the wind and can easily be damaged beyond repair it quite frankly doesn't make sense. I would also point out that at least from what I have seen all their chassis are pretty much the same which in the case of the Cobra really hurts the finished product. There is just no way it will handle like an original Cobra with that suspension. On the other hand, their Willys is quite probably their best product overall.
