The only two companies that I would even consider writing a check to were ERA and Kirkham. The only reason I went with ERA was that it was on the east coast and I really didn't care if I had an aluminum body or not. The entire deal was done on a handshake basis and there wasn't even the slightest glitch during the year long process (other than some of them getting the flu).

Here's what you need to do: Send Peter a check for five grand, or ten grand, whatever it is now to get your name in to their waiting line of customers, and then schedule a time to fly up there and spend the day. There are a million things you haven't thought of in getting one of these cars. But that's the first step, and you can't go wrong with it.
See, that's what i like DIRECT ORDERS! Thanks!

Progress on #782

There is a lot of extraneous banter throughout the thread and some melodrama but I think it does a fair job of documenting the journey.

There is a lot of info on ERA's website to study. They do not piecemeal kits such as in buy a frame now and a body later, but there are options such as if you want to find your own Jag rear suspension and rebuild/modify it yourself.
Good Stuff.
