    Nice for it to have its own thread, thanks Wayne.

    Now for the discussion on if it should be painted black again...

    (Sort of tongue in cheek, but I still think the discussion would be interesting... I like it in white, but I've seen pictures of it in Black and dug those too...)

    Congratulations Jim, I certainly cannot criticise your taste! I could see you driving it with Giorgio Moroder playing out loud. ;) Anyways, do you think Pininfarina will survive on its own?

    Jaw dropping.
    Can you fit in that thing easy?
    I'm 6'5" and most of these concept cars are impossible for me to see anywhere but from outside.

    A great buy, what a beauty.
    I think your next purchase should be Pininfarina itself especially since Ferrari is not doing that....

    Better then I thought it would look like, stunning finish for a one off, IMO.
    Thanks for sharing it.

    Super cool.

    What mods (generally) are needed to make it truly useable?

    Doesn't appear to have a speedo, is DMV New York going to have an issue with that?

    What are the two balls on either side of the seats?

    Can it be made street legal?
    Regardless, can't wait to see that thing on the road(or track).

    Non issue for a car over 25 years old assuming it has necessary road gear which it does or will.

    Absolutely stunning. Putting aside some of my favorite early Talbot Lagos, the Modulo is the most iconic car in the world. I love it in its current white color. Congratulations.

    Found my own Modulo! ;-)


    Made by AMR in the planX series. A small series of kits made in resin.
    Only a few kits were made in resin by amr, rare find!

    Where do you find the time Jim?
    With everything on your plate I'm beginning to doubt that you ever sleep.

    I saw this car in ATL recently...very strange to me.

    Nice setup, Jim. You do treat it well.
