Good evening Guys,
Well its been a while since we featured a members car so getting back into the swing of things this is going to be one of many. If you've taken a shine or special interest in a members car like we at VR6OC did with this one and think there car would be worthy of a feature then please drop me a private message.
This members car was picked for the shear dedication, effort, time, money and I guess many many man hours that has gone into the build.
The build has been followed by myself and probably many of you and I can say without question this car is going to be a rocket when finished. So here goes......
