I just thought I would add something I thought was extremely exciting about this build; that I'm sure this crowd would appreciate.  Al (the proud new owner of that beautiful Continental) picked up the car from Greg Friday morning in Hawaiian Gardens and drove the approximately 213 miles (3.5 hours) to the West Coast Gathering in SLO.  Then did the tour with us on Saturday (approximately 200mi) and drove the car back home to the Sacramento area on Sunday, adding another 300mi to the car (in 106-degree heat).  I think that is a huge testament to the product Greg delivers.  Al had that much trust in Greg's build, and obviously he delivered.

 

I also want to note, the car is simply amazing.  As I heard mentioned on Saturday, Al brought the belle of the ball. I have never been so impressed by any replica, as I was with this.  Greg and Al got all the details right on this one.

Looks really good from here ...      Wonder if you can post more pics of the interior and dash... thanks 

I’m guessing others (especially Greg) have more photos of the interior, but here’s one I snapped. 

What I failed to photo was the awesome headliner and wooden knobs that open the rear pop out windows (which were beautifully trimmed out)

I am impressed with this coupe. No hiccups during it's break in period. The fit, finish and stance of this car are spot on. What's more impressive is the builder. We're talking about a Vintage car. I know, not the Vintage that Kirk and Mary sold to a guy who moved the operation to Arizona. No, this car was built by the soul of Vintage, with a true artist at the helm. Greg @VSpyder Leach is producing cars that rival the quality of Intermeccanica and Beck. It seems that the work crew that built these cars during Kirk's tenure have become master builders under Greg.

Bravo, Greg! I can only imagine how much better Penny would be if she was built by  you.

I'm off on vacation and just got some WiFi. After checking on work email (what?!?! Stop!! It's vacation!!!) I see this set of pictures. Holy crap, Greg!!!

I sat in this car on the floor in April when it had no seats or headliner, an old VW steering wheel for moving it around the shop, and the dash wasn't completely in or wired. Even in that state it was pretty impressive, and I wondered where the build was headed. They exceeded my imagination and expectations. Knocked it out of the park. I hope I make it to the time mine is delivered without my head exploding from anticipation. Dear lord this came out great.

IMG_2380Took the car to the 356 Concours in San Clemente in July and they placed me between two Continentals and the car was well received.  Another 1200 plus trouble free miles. No one asked if it was a replica, I only told one person as he was restoring a car himself and he didn't believe me.

Kate and I saw your car there.  It looked great, and I had to explain to Kate that it was your car and was a replica.
