Default Backdraft price increase january 1

Glad to see the forum back up and running. Just received word last week the price of the RT3 rolling chassis is moving from $39,900 to $42,900. Any cars ordered after January 1, 2018 will be at this new price.

The price increase is to cover the improvements made to the car over the last year and a half. Among these improvements are:

Higher Quality Paint (Materials and Process)
Improved Panel Fitment
Higher Grade Carpets
Improved Seats
Moto-Lita Style Wood Steering Wheel
New Turn Signal Assembly
KYB Rear Shocks
New Larger Brakes with Improved E-Brake Assembly
Improved Head Light Gaskets
Improved Hood Latch Gaskets
Upgraded Fuel Cap Assembly
and Other Enhancements

Unless you are lamenting over the right time being "then."

I know this thread is a little old, but I just made a road trip to visit some classic bike and car museums. And it reinforced how much sense the Backdraft makes. I am over 50 now, and got my first 66 Mustang at age 14. Vintage English Bikes and Cars have been a longstanding obsession for me. And a few things hit me...my top three cars were a 1962 Corvette, a Big Healey and a Cobra. I owned the first two, but with about 1000 made of the original Cobras, that was out of reach. Until I considered a Backdraft. It has the look, but the wiring is not 50 years old and crispy. The motor is a mild by today's standard 345 Horse small block Ford. The original Cobra was a legend with a 271 ADVERTISED horse motor. In the 60's, a lot of horsepower claims were made but nobody ended up in court. Just saying. At any rate, the Backdraft makes a lot more sense to a driver. I know, I know. A lot of guys collect cars because they can, and frankly I love that. They are the stewards of history that will pass them on. However, that is not me. I don't have kids. I do have a Backdraft, and it is without question the most fun I have had on four wheels. Remember, I am a lifelong car guy. I did the whole MG, Triumph, Austin Healey, Jaguar, Lotus progression. To say nothing of the convertible muscle cars I also dabbled in. I need a local friend with what the kids call a scanner to give me a chance to show those photos. Anyway, the long and the short of it is the Backdraft gives you a car with modern reliability as opposed to a restored classic, to say nothing about being able to park it and run in to get a soda. Just saying.
