I spent yesterday afternoon visiting with a new member of this forum. Dan recently posted that he bought an unbuilt CMC Speedster kit that was sitting in Louisville. I believe he said he paid $3000.00 for the kit. Since I live 20 miles west of Louisville I contacted him and found we had met over 20 years ago while involved in local Auto-X events. He had a Porsche 911 and I a modified 73 914. Dan is planning on building the kit and is in the process of looking for a donor beetle with IRS rear suspension. I took some pics of his unassembled Speedster during the visit. Thanks Dan for having me over and good luck on the build.

ACME shows their product at Carlisle.  They'd have to custom make length for a CMC body.  Their normal chassis are $2400 plus core charge for a rear torsion tube.  You'd still need front beams w/suspension parts, steering box/column, petal assembly plus rear suspension and transmission plus shifter mechanism.  A crusty VW chassis saves time/$ - especially if it has a valid title.
