Default first day at SEMA

Long day at SEMA, and kind of a bitch because I can't just post photos to Trubo.

The car has been very well received, and I even got some compliments from other component car manufacturers.

There are so many people at the show that they seemed to have overwhelmed the cell systems--it's hard to get mail, web service, etceteras. I'll have to post pictures when I get back home.

Thanks for kind words.

I have to confess I learned about this car when I walked up on it at the SEMA booth a few hours ago. I did not know who Cord was. I said to William, I think this thing must be a kit car based on the Z4 roadster. William laughed and said "dude, it's a Miata".

I don't usually follow car shows much but I got an email newsletter from another site mentioning sema and my first thought was oh crap, that is this week. I gotta go find catfish pictures! It turned out amazing, congratulations! Oh and I hope we're let in on the surprises for Emilio too

It looks great!

The toggle on the far left... That is to dispense your favorite spirit?

Ricer switch? And why power window switches in a car with no windows?

I think you nailed it! Came out much better than the renderings (which were amazing to start!)
Is the body just in gelcoat color? That is some great fiberglass work if it is!
