Not sure if that response is tongue-in-cheek?

Would have.... I hope... :)

Run and don't look back.

Didn't you dabble in one of these Scud? You and some mates I remember a photo, it was green wasn't it?

I reckon it is a gorgeous looking car... I am sure that Aaron can afford the real one without any issue, but that is, if he was a Ford guy.. if you aren't a die-hard Ford guy, I wouldn't worry about buying a real deal... to own a great looking car like that with the value holding strongly (even though it is a replica), that's a no brainer if you can have it at a good price... enjoy driving it with the 427 and you can move on to another one when you are bored with it....

Knowing Aaron is a pure Ferrari/Porsche guy, if it was a repliace F or a P car (e.g. a replica F40), he wouldn't even considered and this thread would have never got started... Same to me and Andrei, we would never touch a replica Lambo no matter how cheap or how well built they are...

Here is what is supposed to be a pretty good 250 GTO replica in NZ for sale.

This is where it gets interesting. Stuff rebuilt to original designs with a mixing of real parts / components / engine.



C'mon, do it!

How do you mean, sorry Tristan?

Sorry 360c if the original comment came across aggressive, certainly didn't intend it that way

for some reason the 40 and cobras don't bother me being a replica. I thought there ere more replicas than originals and did would not think twice about it.

L & F cars always look shocking when a replica, usually because it is based on a mr2 or celica.


My question is what use are you buying it for? as that depends on if it is appropriate.
buying as a show car, then no more on its a replica
buying it for a drive / targa / track car, then HELL YEA

Actual replica's were on tour auto or real cars?

Sorry, real cars on the tour.  There were 2.

Not sure if you went to the Historics at PI in the past years but Andy Newall from the UK builds them and they are very good quality.  Was in the Gulf colours too!

I don't have a problem with good quality replicas when the originals are so rare, expensive and hard to get hold of, but I do when people try and claim them as the real deal.  Thats the difference IMO.

yes, torched $30k to $50k in the process. It was white.

Chassis was well built but had a falcon engine (coyote?) that leaked and low HP.

Driving it was awful and you felt you were in a coffin.
