When Dave Smith did his last online Q and A, he talked about all new projects being "inspired by" or "similar to" and pretty much said that with the GT-V8, Mark II, Coupe and supercar, that the 250 is back burner....which also means that they won't have to fight with the F company. Sad, but true....I had wanted to build one of those from the day I went for my factory tour in 1999, shortly before picking up my Cobra (they were still called Cobra Replicas back then).
I guess after the Shelby legal episode there's no sense baiting any mfg'r who still has claim to the design. I feel as long as it doesn't match the original exactly and you don't call it a replica, there shouldn't be a problem. It was a cool looking car.
