EBay Replica Car Finds

Post by FRUNKenstein » Sun Sep 09, 2018 2:50 pm

I've owned 3 replica/kit cars in my life. One was a disaster. The other 2 were decent cars. Well, actually they were horrible "cars" but did their jobs of being a lot of fun very well. So, from time to time, I stop by the "Replica" cars category on ebay just to see what's new in the automotive version of the freak show. This thread is dedicated to that freak show - post your best finds here.

I'll start with the "Vaydor".

It actually looks pretty sweet - for some reason makes me think of an Aventador.

At a cool $89,000 "Buy It Now" price, I assume it's not built on a Fiero nor powered by VW.

The Vaydor is based on an Infiniti G35 coupe chassis and powertrain, although I think there is an LS swap option

Hey Groov! We've missed you buddy! Have you made it to the 991 yet? If not, you've been passed by Cuda. I wouldn't take being 2nd place sitting down. Now go out there and find a 991! We're rooting for you!
2002 Porsche 996 Carrera - bare bones basic, but still a blast to drive! Heck, I don't even have PSM on it. Ha!

I love that the seller lists this 1976 kit car as "Brand New". It was built 43 years ago using components from a Fiat 124. So, yeah, "Brand New" seems right.

If I had the money ($159,950), this would be tempting:

Hey Groov! Good to see you over here! I did get your RL pm over the holidays - I read it, but didn't have time at that moment to go find the thread and post something over in it. Then I forgot to go back later and look. I need to go check it out.
