How sick am I that looking at this whole kit, I automatically started thinking of ways I would make it better if I had one.......the seats look like a$$, (some nice Recaros would look good in there), and I am sure a nice forged piston/valve head job on that LS7 with a raised redline (say....maybe 8K rpm as long as it still makes power that high), BBK, a few other goodies, would make this sucker damn near perfect for all sorts of driving. I like the decision to go with a Porsche transmission over the Corvette's. Night and day difference there huh?

I like the MK3 roadster, too. That would be so nice to have in the garage for the special occasion.

Yea, funny you should say that...I've thought the same stuff. That is the beauty of a kit car (or any car, for that matter) is that they can be as personalized as you want. I dunno. I've been in love since I seen this car. According to youtube, it does very well on the track as well. On one forum I checked out, a guy had his GTM to 165mph easily without it getting "funky" feeling. Said it was very aerodynamically correct for performance as well as looks, although he also stated that was as fast as he wanted to go because it was ONLY a kit car, meaning that parts may not be on as good, etc., and all that jazz. I keep telling myself that I'll have this in my garage someday, though. Glad you guys enjoyed it.

I've changed my mind. I now like the Type 65 Coupe. Something about the sleek lines just reels me in wanting to get intimate with it.
