One small plug for Rob - his cars are absolutely fantastic builds and you my friend have an eye for design and a great feel for tasteful yet unique components to include in your builds! It's guys like you that are in fact raising the bar very high for others. Also you were kind enough to give me some offline insight into a unique component of your build and so you will recognize that on my car when it's complete and so thanks for that.

I've "borrowed" many ideas from guys before me like Rob to use on my 63 SWC resto-mod currently under construction. I've also realized how expensive and time consuming these high-end builds are to do right.

Agree that this is not going away anytime soon but the bar continues to be raised every day.

I think the quote from Ferris Beuller sums it up "If you have the means, I highly recommend it"
Thank you for the kind words, they are greatly appreciated! We love what we do and are more focused on the build than the profits and we hope that's translated in the finished product, although profits are good from time to time.

I love your quote, I'll have to borrow that.

Rob

Hey Rob, I love your cars too. But, why don't you ever build them with stock 15" knock-off wheels with 15" tires? We ALL like the "stock look" but not all of us like modern wheels on a true classic C2 Corvette.

The '65 we built had "knock off" 17" wheels and we had to change to 13" rotors to get the brakes to fit. Everyone still expects big brakes on these cars and it's pretty difficult to do with a small diameter wheel.

I love the look of 15" on a C2, a good friend a of mine and partner on a few cars is getting ready to build a '67 Roadster to keep, and he's adamant about keeping it period correct and not using anything larger than 15" vintage racing wheels. I believe his plan is to use C4 brakes front and rear to fit in the wheels.
