    I saw that in one of Jonzo's posts.
    I have a freind that has one and don't even ask him about selling it.
    He bought a new GT-500 a couple of years back not the Mustang but the real deal the Mid-Engine one and he is toying with the Idea of putting the Cammer in it.
    He must have more money than brains.

    when all is said and done, it should cost somewhere around 25k. factory five guarantee's it as long as we have an 87-04 mustang for a donor car
    base kit is 15K, and complete without engine, trans, wheels- 21k
    it would be a cool as hell project once it's done though!

    funny thing is, overhead cams have been around since the 20's.
    watching a show on tv. and one person pointed out that when Europeans make a car, they take the time to start with suspension, choose a drivetrain, shape a body, and then say, ok, so how much horsepower do we need to make this work perfectly?
    where as the americans start with an engine, beef the crap out of it, stuff it into a box with 4 wheels, and say it's good.

    Daytona coupes are one of the best looking cars ever made...Id have to do something about the rear though, thunderbird taillights of some sort maybe.

    That reads like a nice kit. If it stayed at the price they say it would be a good project. There is a guy here that has one and it sports a 347 and some goodies. Shelby wheels etc. He has far north of 50K in his.

    A fellow here in Western NY has 2 originals, and one of those aluminium copies- don't ask if they are for sale, you know the answer.
