ive been down the path of buying a kit that came with a basic chassis and body where you have had to put the doors / bonnet / boot together and then get all the gaps right a daunting task if you dont have body work skills . or they have the skills to do the body but dont have a mechanical mindset and end up buying a old jag front and rear and just clean it paint it and wack it in hoping for the best .
or people dont have the time to scrounge thru wreckers getting covered in grease and crap hoping to find what they need and a good price .
ive been there and done that and this time round had no interest at all in building another kitcar again hence my first plan was to look for a car with rego hop in and drive .
it was only after flying interstate a couple of times looking at cars that did not seem to meet the description in the add i was about ready to forget the idea of getting another cobra till i saw a add vert for the pace . it seemed to tick most of the boxes in what i wanted and after seeing them in the flesh at the factory decided i could def build one of these without the head aches i had in the past with my first kit .

ive prob gone off course with this post as it was just meant to agree with donunder about the beauty of these cars lol a clear body hell yeah put me down for that .

cheers dean
Totally agree! I've built multiple cars over the years including another brand of Cobra. It wasn't until I built my last car, 67 GT390 Mustang that I realised how great it is to be able to make a phone call knowing you can buy, NEW, any part you want for the car, ANY!!!!

The Pace Cobra is the same and the reason why I built another Cobra!! Used parts and 'wrecker grabbing' is old school and a thing of the past!!!!

And yes, I am off topic too but I love my Pace!!
