I will post pics of it as soon as it arrives, as well as the entire build. Ford fanatics beware, you might not like what you're about to see.

BTW, NO I am not building a Cobra kit car.

Getoff - I love you too. :P

Okay okay, The wait is over!

So yesterday about 4pm I get a call from the driver,
"Hey man, are you excited yet??"
Hell ya I'm excited!
"Cool, cuz I'm about 4 miles from your house."

So 10 minutes later my buddies and I are all standing in the drive way, and here is what turns the corner!

So of course I'm pooping my pants at this point, Its finally here!!!

So once we get the car off the truck, its placed on a dolly and rolled into the garage, and placed on 4 jack stands. Along with the car, I've also got a windshield glass, hatch glass, 2 door, and 23 boxes full of goodies. Once the driver leaves, I don't hesitate to start opening them up and doing inventory. There is a HUGE check list of each box and its contents, down to every nut / bolt / washer. So I start going one by one and checking stuff off the list.

On Friday my wheels came in and before the day was over, I mounted my tires up.

Tires are a 315-35-17 in the rear, and 255-45-17 in the front.

So even after staying up until 2am last night going through boxes and checking stuff off the list, I've still got a few more to go. This has got to be the coolest thing I have ever had delivered to my house!!!

See, I told you it wasn't a cobra. Its the Type65 Coupe. ;-)

Haha, ya you almost had it right on the money. I was so torn between the coupe and the cobra. Figured the coupe might get away with a little more racing, since its got a roof. I also love the whole front end coming up when its time to work on it.

I would like to go take a tour of that place someday. Looks awesome!

So it literally came with everything you need to put it together? Wowzers. I was looking at their price list and was like dang the GTM costs about the same, I should get one, then I realized the only difference it it's missing $17,000 worth of a corvette. :P

Right, The GTM is a one price, kit. (no basic vs. complete) Buy the kit and you get 8 boxes with it. Rest of the stuff comes from the C5.

My kit was a complete, came with 23 box's. Basically all I have to provide is engine / trans, Rear end w/ brakes, wheels / tires, and bodywork / paint. Everything else including every nut / bolt is included. I just finished doing my inventory count on everything, and I am VERY impressed with the packaging, and the detail that went into getting this kit dialed in. For the money, I think its a steal for what you're getting.
