Thanks Bob. Yes the street version is a bit different for sure. Not the popular choice to most. But I'm a bit odd and different. Just ask my wife!!  ;D

I'm finally heading to Iowa later this week to meet with the Alec on Friday. Will see the new facility they have now in Carroll and hopefully finalize my order while I'm there.

Greg very cool. Mine is underway and close to complete in about a month I hope. Would be cool to see pictures. I didn't have the chance to get out there due to covid and flying. Neither was very appealing.

I'm sure I'll be able to get some of your's in progress. I've had to fly a few times recently and its definitely a little different these days.

 I have 5500 miles on my car trouble free . Once I bought an engine from Kieth Craft engines my previous engine problem was eliminated . Also the hell I went trough with a Lakewood bell housing was totally fixed with a Quicktime bell housing and have not had any problems since . I give my car hell and the TKO 600 has performed flawlessly . I originally bought an engine from Fordstroker
.com and it was junk . KC engines said the machining looked like a novice first time  engine build . The only regret I have now I wished I had used a new World block . The car handles nicely and
after I learned how to launch the car straight it has been a blast . I have planned some  future mods and one mistake I made was not going with a better brakes , The stock braked work great
but you have to be Charles Atlas to stop the car quickly . I should have went with the  Willwood brakes , but it you man handle the car and pay attention the original Chevy metric brakes are OK.
  I have had the car over a 150 mph and it felt like it was going to lift off the road . During that idiotic run my visors got to flapping and I broke my windshield . A crack in the upper corner and not
in the line of sight for normal driving . I do plane on a new glass . I get lots of compliments and I have given maybe 25 rides . Little kids go ape **** and I have let several kids sit in the car for pictures . Overall a wonderful experience and I am please I bought this car over some other Cobra manufacturers . I still get testy with people who ask me if the car is a FFR ......I tell them that
I have a car better than a  FFR . If I wanted one I would have bought one . The Texas heat has been a cause for not driving my car because it is frankly an oven . I do drive my car often in the
Fall and Winter months . I am a big time lover of 40-41 Ford pickups and I have thought about selling my car ........but when I drive it the thought disappears. It is a fun and dependable car now
and I see it in the family for many more years ............I will always be thankful for the late Jay Nordstroms help and encouragement to finish this car ..........Not just another replica . It looks real enough for me in 2020 .

Congrats on getting things sorted out. Keith Craft is always good to deal with. Time to enjoy that ride!

Glenn!
Welcome to the group!  Hurricane is an awesome company, an awesome group of people who are available and stand behind their products 100%.  You made the right decision to go with Hurricane.
I have been working on mine for 4 years (3 kids, own my own business-life is busy) but I am finally coming to the end of the build.  I can't wait to put this thing on the road!
Good luck and I'll be looking for your progress photos!
Now I lay rubber down the street, I pray for traction I can keep, but if I spin and begin to slide, please dear Lord, protect my hide.
