Too bad you don't have a roughly six by two.inch section of a real one with the VIN stamped on it, you could call it a restoration project.


I do have a chunk of a real 550 on my desk, it was burned, but no VIN attached. Also, I think the car has been fully restored and on the show circuit now.

Lots more measurements taken today off of 0054. Very motivating to see such a cool car!

This is a real one too in Melbourne Adam. In the fox Car Museum
Apparently it was severely damaged all the way to the firewall. They rebuilt it by taking measurements from Jerry Seinfeld's car then made a buck
Later on they lazer scanned Jerry's car too

The next big push will happen in a few months, waiting for some prep work and scanning so we can have an accurate buck to start the real shaping. Stay tuned!
