Hey Guys,
Looking to build a Cobra Kit car but the field is to big and confusing. Anyone have any experience to share? Good or bad.

There are some brothers out of Utah called " Kirkham".. theirs are almost dead knock offs of the real 427 s roadsters. Their bodies are aluminum like the originals... ( made in a MIG factory in Poland ) . I don't know if they sell theirs as a kit or not. But they are the closest to the real thing that I have seen. There are lots of fiberglass replicas... but to the trained eye they are easy to spot as a fake.

Great show. Two Canadian guys that do hot rod/restoration work in Canada, do no-nonsense cars and drive some great high $$$ or extremely special car each week.

The Speed channel has some other good shows, but the trend towards the import/tuner market is evident.

Answered back a while back but I am having trouble with AOL cutting me off. These are the places I have been to. I am looking for someone that has had experience with one of them. Good or Bad.

My thoughts exactly.

Why would a business man want to let the world see his operation in that way.

Some episodes of Rides are pretty cool, although Jason Priestly's voice annoys me for some reason. Wish they had a different narrator.
