Default Wildcat first drive (Cheetah inspired build)

I love this forum and have appreciated the comments that I've received about my Cheetah inspired build.

It's been quite a process to get here. I've started an stopped on several car projects. On previous ones I've stopped when I got to the point that I could see the results weren't going to meet my expectations. It's taken almost 3 years to build this car. I can say that I'm very happy with the results. I love the looks and it drives and handles very well.

After completion it took 3 months to work through the New York, USA registration process for custom vehicles. I just got the car registered and on the road. I took about 100 mile drive through the winding roads of the Adirondack Mountains of New York.

Here are a few pictures. One is of my son in it so that you can see how the occupants fit into the car. He is 6' 2" tall. The seat can even be mounted lower.

The white body is as it came out of the molds. It's not finished. I laid out the stripe in duct tape to see if I like it. I have a second body being finished in Red. This fall I will switch bodies.

Having Fun

Fantastic! Love to see it eclipsing those Cobra clones.

What a great looking car, and so much more subtle and elegant than those fake snakes.

Wicked looking motor.

Driving with your bum nearly over the axle must be some experience also.

Good to see it on the road after following your build.

It does look amazingly different, sure it's turning a lot of heads - and most of all, glad to see it also handles according to your taste!
