I am a little surprised this car did not show up on this or some other thread. The car appears to be very well built but with no mention of why the project wasn't completed. If interested in seeing this liner, here is the eBay listing number: 222382394429

I agree with Stainless! That is one serious piece!! My bet is that even if he gets $100K+ he still is loosing money.

I hate seeing projects like this get almost to completion, then stall out. Years back, Lynn St. James' husband commissioned (hope I have my facts straight on this) the Riely and Scott group to build a streamliner fueled by either propain or natural gas, I can't remember which. The car was completed, waiting on final payment. What I am told, the car sits in storage and has done so for years.

I saw the ad, maybe on Racing Junk? it is quite the car.  Some people commission projects only to realize they are way over their heads and just push them way to the back of the garage.  I built a turbo Mustang for a guy 15years ago, drag race with huge turbo, state the art, over 1400hp, beautiful piece that I was very proud of and knew it'd get me lots more work.  It needed the transmission built, I had a Dedenbear case for construction and it needed building.  When I fired it up the first time the owner felt the throttle and overwhelmed him, the car left my shop to go to his garage and has yet to see the light of day.  This SL might be the same thing, not money just a heavy dose of reality.

Good to hear that about the car and getting the facts right from the horses mouth (lol). Thank you for setting the record and me, straight. I did visit your site and what a stunning car you have, Roger.

Roger, Darn sure looks better than the one you left half of in the dumpster years and years ago.... We salvaged our first roll of header wrap from the really long tail pipe on that one.   grin

Back to track... So Sid, who is selling this black hat?  cheers
