Bill,

It's about time!!! An official welcome as a manufacturer and the only known link to the Contemporary Daytona Coupe!

A beautiful car...I still want one Bill, so keep me in mind!

See you at Watkins Glen...will you have a new demo available soon to run at the Glen??

Happy Holidays!

Hi Bill,

Glad to see your company represented here. BTW, do you have a demo coupe that you bring to the Glen? After our adventure up there this fall, I'm getting good at blowing up other peoples demos. So if you need my expertise in clutch testing...

Don

Hello Bill: My Contemporary is #CCX-3-3970 which was first sold 11/12/96. It was advertised as having "XKE suspension and steering" and that appears to be true. It has coil-overs up front. I had the half shaft stub axles rebuilt by a local Jag expert and he says the rear end is from a MK 10 sedan. I'm trying to find out exactly what components are in my machine and wonder if you might have that kind of detail in your records. I'd like to know the year, model, etc. components that the car was built with. I am now finally ready to install that impressive Watts linkage you sent me a few months ago. Soon I'll be able to drive my beast hard enough to scare women, children and small animals. Thanks for your help, Rich.

Upstate cobra replicas rolled over and died several years ago. It is my understanding that there are creditors still unpaid. I will leave it at that.
