Wow, a GT40!!

If I come down to your part of the world can I get a lift in it?

And I'm small enough to close the door without cutting the top of my head off!

good point but they are ugly as sin and even the genuine ones look like they have been thrown together.

I think it is about knowing what you have yourself, other peoples opinions matter not. Yes there are other cars I might have instead and I liked the alfa, but I would always rate a GT40 above it.

There is always the stigma of the home brewed kit I agree, but even a kit isn't too shabby. Who cares what the man in the street thinks- afterall a Yeti C26 is just an old bike to him.
I don't care at all tbh. I do care about the 0-140mph in 11 seconds though. That will be a real laugh!

As long as your happy with it , just don't want you to get enraged at the traffic lights when people lean down and say " is it real ? " :lol: I'll wait for the topic titles - " I punched another guy today " .

I can't get past the selling an alfa to buy a ford part :lol:

It won't be gulf colours will it ?

It's not going to get much day to day road use Perry so I dont expect dumb questions from builders in Transits.

Some people would consider moving from a Alfa to a Ford to be a upward move. :lol:

It certainly won't be painted in Gulf Colours that's for sure, colour choice is a long long way off.
