This is the real deal, correct". I said "well actually it IS a replica made by a company in Ct - ERA - that makes about 60 cars a year". They were quite surprised, said "well it's still a really nice car", and were still a little confused as my car has "antique" plates, as permitted here in Florida.


I seriously considered the new slab side, especially since I am going after the 'street' look, but I really like the look of the FIA fenders ... such a beautiful shape. So, my car will be more of a blend of the two ... 'street' & 'race'. ERA does make a nice car ... that's for sure. I'll post some 'build' specs soon.
