    Sounds good....but all I see is green interference, government roadblocks, and taxes.....the price will go up.
    The fact that there's a highway to hell and a stairway to heaven says a lot about the anticipated traffic flow.

    Sign me up! And I've always been a Fraud man! I couldn't even afford the brochure let alone a deposit on one of these. It would be a very collectible artifact if they ever do get built! I'd even suggest a good investment at that price point!
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    As always, I'll believe it when I see it....at the moment, it looks like Alfadan all over again...

    Nice idea but not realistic, i would prefer a charger if going down the repro route. Whatever they build it just wont be the same, may look the part but wont have the character or feel of an original.
