Now that's funny!!! Gotta hate when that happens.

Now back on the off topic

My 83 (Actually a 79) Mustang back halved round tube full cage all factory glass all steel except for the fiberglass hood. Removed the front and rear steel bumpers. A460 block, aluminum heads JW case glide. 3012 # race ready minus driver. Add me and my gear and it's just over 3200#

Problem is ALL my business is by word of mouth and people seem to believe the negative more than the positives.

Yep, and to make matters worse: If a guy thinks he got a good deal from your shop, ANY SHOP, he'll pay his bill, keep his mouth shut and take a bow every time someone compliments his great car.

But if he thinks (right or wrong) that he got a raw deal, he'll bitch about it to everybody he sees. Mad

Yea I still alive lol . You get a glass body instead of carbon it's not out of budget in the long run . You would be surprised what you can build yourself for a reasonable budget if you take your time . You are way ahead to build your own car

Id have to disagree..... Better to buy someone else's complete car..... Usually they can be had for a lot less than building one as long as your not stupid and wait for the right deal.

I like to build my own chassis my self also the reason is I feel like if I buy a chassis ready to go I'm buying somebody's problems if they have a chassis that works most of the time they don't sell them and if they do its to a close friend that knows the chassis......JMO on buying a chassis
