I was so close. Again... However life has a funny way of working out... This is where the story turns. Had a falling out with my two friends. Saw the end of the rotary happen in 2015 and the profiteering start and faced the realization that I wanted a specific house more than this car. So I decided to go ahead and sell it. Turns out that the car was worth a bit more with the chassis without the kit and rims and so that is how it went. The car sold to a guy in washington the day I listed it. He came down for it instantly. The other kid came up from medford and bought a pair of rims and the kit. The motor went to a build locally and the little stuff was all passed on to enthusiasts.


I have since watched the kit change hands a couple times. It made its way from there to Vegas where it was made pink and turned into a strip show car. I noticed not too long after that buckie lang ended up with it and is now making it into something new. The front bumper seems to have been destroyed during all that, but the kits still looks good on his FD!

I ended up inheriting a couple hundred acres and went a different route for a couple years and have really enjoyed watching the car and the kit become what they have and seeing peoples designs with it!

he sold it already and it is missing the fenders possibly. But there it is today! This was the last sighting of it! Nice to see the kits is still around. I would love to know what happened to my old vsxx rims. I have another widebody project I am doing and they would look nice on it!



I am still on the look out for a clean shell. I may end up buying another touring someday, but it will need to be complete and not modified. I am arms deep in a hand full of classic and import restorations right now and these were just some fun times in the past. It is interesting to see how many cars and parts I had travel the country!

So that was it! It was a fun build. I never got to finish it and I am not sure if I want another FD in the future. If I do, it will probably be a stock MB touring like I first had. Next time I will start with a clean shell though! Hope you enjoyed the story and are keeping an eye on the kit and the build! I would love to know where the rims ended up?

Thumbs up Update on blister kit

(update, the incomplete kit on buckey's car is from circut theory (tom) and is not the complete kit, so it is still alive and well in the states as the only one in the USA!)
