It may just be me, but i've found that my gas pedal is typically either 100% on or 100% off in this car - makes for an entertaining outing

Well, if you need to keep the pedal at 100%, you need more power!

What can you guys tell me about the various kit makers? Superformance, Factory Five, Shell Valley, Backdraft, others? The one I'm working on is a Superformance; the roller seems nice, but whoever built and installed the engine and trans was a total hack.

Shelby/Kirkham, Superformance and ERA are the "rich man" replicas...lol. More correct looking compared to the original cars and higher quality parts used in the build. They are factory built as turn key minus cars-complete cars just needing the engine/transmission installed. I think Backdraft are also made in a factory, but they use a BMW strut type suspension. As you go down the line, some of the kits are partially built. Some, like Factory Five, have to be assemble from a bunch of new or used parts, and are only as good as the parts used and the skill of the person building it. I've seen some Factory Five cars that were pretty nice and some that were just horrible piles of shit. There is a lot of support online for building a Factory Five replica.

Superformance makes a very nice replica. They make it fairly easy to bolt in an engine/trans and get it hooked up and running. Wiring, hoses, oil filter mount, linkage all installed. Too bad you got stuck following a hack. Some people can take a fairly straightforward operation and turn it to shit.

The same thing happened with the originals back in the 60s

I have a Lone Star, its a few inches longer and wider than the originals, its all in the interior, leg room. Factory Five is a good company, I give them a thumbs up

Looks like Lone Star has become Ultimate Classic Cars.
