Default Just like a BDR????

I called on a BDR for sale. The owner stated that it was like a BDR, made by the brother after they split. Same body mold, BMW front and Rear sub, etc. Can any shed any light on this??? I think he said the name was Performance.

Performance Cars Venom. It was a knock off of the early BDR car. Very different from a BDR today, mold etc. You can find more info and owners on this forum by searching for Venom.

Hey 68, if you're looking for a BDR, then check out this ad:

http://inlandempire.craigslist.org/cto/1568635772.html

After talking with the guy it sounds like this is the color combo/what the car looks like:

http://www.flpcars.com/BDR711Pics.html

And only $25K with a Roush 427, kinda makes me wish I didn't pick up that Contemporary last week - only because it needs some work, don't get your feathers ruffled CCx brothers!

I think a quick way to tell is on the Venom (and some real early BDR) cars, is where the cobra emblems go, it was actually recessed into the body panel. So you had no choice as to where they went on the car, otherwise you had a noticeable flat spot.

Wow, I wonder if that's why it's priced so low... aside form the color combo which doesn't float my boat either.
