    Fantastic, congrats! Gary

    Just wondering, is it just me or does the car's finish give anyone else the impression that this is a very, very heavy car, like 5 tons worth? Sort of a visual conundrum. Gary

    Jeff, I'm a big fan of the car, love the look! Would the rules allow a custom molded rear window, would make for a better aero package? Same thing about the addition of side glass. Bob
     
  13. This is one of those cars that really has to be seen in person. It is very cool. We were checking it out while that French fella was shooting pictures and you still managed to squeeze in some time for our questions ... I really appreciate that.

    Congrats on the record!
