That's a fantastic creation. Would love to some more pics (including some of the build) and a more extensive build summary added to the "Completed Builds Showcase" part of this site. :cheers:

Thanks for the compliments. Am I way off on my asking price or is it just the wrong time of year to sell a roadster? I seem to have very little intrest in all the places I've listed for sale.

My take is that unless you have a reputation as a builder, or absolutely gobsmack people, your creations are likely to be undervalued. Sadly, most people will chose known mediocrity over less-known brilliance. Build diaries are also a plus as well, since that reduces the element of the unknown.

edit: It's also not the best time of year.

Thanks for the input. I actually built the car for a build off competition so everything is documented in a photo album with the car. This is my first build of this style, I'm an ase master tech and this my 5th complete build. I've done everything from an E-Type jag to quarter mile cars to my last build which was a 29 model a rat rod

Well Ben, you're the sort of fella that I'd want to buy a home-built from. Good luck. All it take is one guy. I sold mine on ebay motors to a cop.
