Love it. Always dig a good backdate.


I have an m491 car in my neighborhood that is never driven. It's a gold 85. Neighbor said he'd sell it for $60k, and I think I just might do it.

I got to see the Orange and Blue cars in process. A-mazing!

Makes me want to find a damaged 491 coupe and have Dave build a "Club Sport" / lightweight, sunroof delete, version for me. Non backdate. Would be TOUGH to pick a color.

Looking forward to seeing this one in the wild once finished. PCA SDR concours?

Ok I think these high end back dates have "jumped the shark"! Now we have to Gold plate the hardware to measure up? :-) (just kidding)

looks incredible. Love the dark on the intake. looks 'the business".

Had partial clear bra protection done at 5 Points Auto Salon. We have the blue car back for an oil change and reconfigure wiring on the ac blower and general checkout and cleanup before heading to Monterey in a few weeks.

But while we had it went to cars and coffee this morning with the blue car and shakedown run on the red car and met the owner of the bahama orange car, so 3 cars at the same event. All of them have similarities and all have their own differences. I let my buddy drive the red car and he was really impressed with it, which is a good sign for us as we got it pretty good straight out of the box and less finessing down the road

Looks great. Nice to see a traditional Red build for a change. Take that you Guards Red haters.

The weld on light conversion boxes should be a hot item. Are you selling them yet?

I have a set of French headlight and fog light lenses waiting to go on my Guards Red car. Iím waiting for my one off Fiske wheels to be completed. Ordered in April.
The French lights with gold wheels against Red should be a good look based on how yours looks.

My friend sent me a few photos of your car when he was there too! Wished I could have made it out there.
