ENJOY:Summary: This car is a great driver, and local show winner, with it's Bob Sharp origins, matching numbers, and countless new parts and immaculate interior, it would only require a little more work to become a serious collectible, mid level show car, or just leave it as-is and enjoy a thrilling weekend warrior. These are meant to be driven, and this one is ready to rock. The exhaust note gives a very deep rumble at idle, with a "super bike" song at full revs. Back off the throttle and you are greeted with a mean sounding back burn heard only from a true classic race car. Use the hand choke, and it starts up in any weather...but do me a favor and keep her out of the bad weather :-)
