Hey everyone... So, I got bit by Eddie aka NiceGuyEddie's Cobra a little over a year ago and just recently I've decided to take the plunge and sell all my two wheel toys for an FFR.

I thought about building one but having a newborn entering our lives would only result in boxes unopened and selling the kit after a year of sitting. So, I've decided to purchase a completed car and hopefully the one I'm working on pans out. Don't want to jinx anything yet so I'll post again after the completion of the transaction.

This sounds like a fun group of guys, hope to meet some of you in the future.

Welcome!

Excellent, Ken. I went to the HB event earlier this year, and actually seeing the built cars really helped me decide to go ahead and get a kit. Then, I had to decide - Roadster or Coupe? Then it was Roadster or the 33. Then I saw the GTM. . . . After a lot of thinking, I decided to get a Coupe kit. Let us know what you got when the deal is done!

Kit delivery is coming soon - next few weeks!

That's awesome, can't wait to see the coupe all done up. I think I'll build one down the road, but with starting a new family, I think buying a completed one is a better option for me.

on various motorcycles of sorts, he's got about 1,235 laps at Willow Springs and knows every bump, dip, and pothole, so prepare to LOSE to a Newbie

cheers,

p.s. - i can't believe Kenny really bought one, but oh so glad.

Welcome! and nice car! I am sure you will have a lot of fun with it. You need to post details, though. As Marty said, looking forward to meeting and a drive. Keep checking into the Socal region threads.

Like the Bullitt wheels too.

You'll love those Kirkeys. Nothing like staying put in your seat during fast corners. There's always little things to do!
