Default corvette and GTM from FFR

Has anyone personally taken their corvette and turned it into the donor car for a GTM from Factory Five Racing? If so do you use the GTM as a daily driver? Have anyone bought a wrecked corvette and used it as a donor for the GTM and again is it a daily driver?

England Green how many GTM's have you built for customers?

I doubt anyone uses a GTM for a daily driver as their is no real storage room in them since the are mid-engined.

If you do a search you'll see a few guys have or in the process of building one of these cars.

I have thought about the storage issue myself. Going back and forth to work with both me and my wife shouldn't be too much of an issue. I was actually more interested or concerned about the heat and noise issue in the cabin. I drive the corvette all around the country on trips and that would be impossible with the GTM but maybe an overnight trip to Albuquerque, Tucson or Phoenix might be alright.

Evidently I am using the wrong search words, do you have any suggestions to find who is building one?

Have a great and safe 4th of July everyone and make sure you thank a man or woman who is serving or has served our country. It is because of them we get to have these cars and freedoms to go where we want when we want.
