    You really did a great job; the detail just goes on and on! Good to see you recently.

    Well, when you make a project like this and come out in the open, you put yourself up for scrutiny. Nothing wrong with that and amazing skills.

    I do agree with Amenasce that the overall shape is off, but because of the high waist line. If this was the intention or necessary I don't know, but to me it shows how fine tuned the original designs were. Not always though. I still think the LWB California looks akward whereas the SWB Cali hits the sweet spot.

    Cool project nonetheless!

    Cool car. Glad to see a custom rather than a copy!

    Regards,

    Car was at McCall's Motorworks Revival on Wed. (8/12/15)
    Is it going to auction? Does Rick Bunkfeldt (builder) still own it?

    Rick still owns the car. I have been a passenger in it. It is FAST, and those pipes scream like no other Ferrari!

    Cool. Thanks for info. Car was also at the Quail on Friday. Curious, any idea why the car was invited this year? It was finished when? 2 yrs ago? I bet he get's offers on the car all the time. Is Rick on Fchat? Maybe he has some POV video?!!!

    I would love to see a video of this thing in action. In fact, I would settle for just audio -- can't even imagine what those sidepipes with 6 outlets per side would sound like.
