hello all! first off - a very large thank you to this forum and community!
i first joined waaaaaay back in 2007 and by the long route - starting a family, moving to / from switzerland, and (the real clincher) my wife and daughter buying their horses - i was finally able to put in my order for a beck speedster in january 2021!
all the while, i logged in to follow the conversation here - you helped keep the dream alive!
so, still early on in the build, but my inspiration was this triple black canepa 356.
my build is pretty straight forward: beck turnkey w/ a subaru EJ25 engine. keeping it clean on the inside with the standard VDO gauges, starter button, 12 volt plug, and 4 speaker out of sight audio.
exterior chrome tips on the exhaust and wipers, aero mirrors, louvered engine bay hood, chrome front / rear bumpers, beehives, and LED lights. it'll have heated seats and heater core to extend my driving season some (illinois weather). wide 5 vintage 190 aluminum wheels.
still thinking through other odds and ends - steering wheel and shifter for one. door cards. headlights. etc.
i could not be happier and more comfortable in working with carey and special edition. such great people. character counts. great cars. excellent build quality.
you all let me follow along with your builds - and gave me the confidence to take the leap! let me know your thoughts if i am missing something, should think through alternate selections, or have general thoughts. all appreciated!
i'll post pics as my bit of madness evolves! (o.\_|_/.o)
many thanks again! m
