After looking into this as far back as last years Knott’s I ended up buying DDPDDS’s un-started kit. Danny had planned to use the car for road racing and was going to have Performance Associates in San Dimas, CA build the car. Trilby at Performance Associates has done the best inventory that I have seen. Every single part down to the last nut, bolt and washer is in its own bag with a label with its part number on it. As a result of her hard work I have a coupe kit in my garage with NO BACKORDERS
. It is as complete as it can be. If you get a chance to visit Performance Associates do it, they had a bunch of really nice cars including Cobras. Say hi to Trilby.
Randy from Stewart Transport delivered the car despite an encounter with the dirt roads in the high country...thanks Randy. Manny (mannyjoe) moved boxes for me and pushed the car the 300 yards from the big rig to the house ... thanks Manny.
My plans for the Coupe have been fairly fluid. The latest iteration is carbed Ford crate 347, TKO, 3-link, homegrown sway-bars and assorted other modifications copied from the folks who know what they are doing.
For the AZ crew, and any visitors in the area, Paula and I were thinking about an un-crating event on Sat the 12th. We are in Payson, bit of a haul I know but we’d love to see any of you that can make it.
