I know that projects can stall and life gets in the way, but has there been any progress since June? I would love to see how this project has progressed, if you've been able. If not I understand, I've been away from the bench since may, due to summer activities, and then ahome improvement project forced upon me by a broken water pipe inside a wall in my house. Can you update us please?

Sorry no updates. I'll be getting back to it soon. Family health issues and work have taken most of my time but I haven't given up.

Outstanding work! what a great idea of using wood to create the master.
This is an incredible car with a lot of technical challenges. I look forward end (see marketing) of this car.

Hey Rick... I also found this early photo of the Wildcat. Check out the hubs. It looks like they don't turn, and act as a scoop for the brakes...

Maybe a little over a year but I'd hate to see this one just die. Any new updates?

Add me to the list of wanting to see progress. Great project. I hope to see more of it.

Nice work indeed and an interesting part of GM history.....you are a real craftsman!!!
If Harley Earl had his way in the fifties.... this car would have supplanted the Corvette and Zora Duntov would not have been hired or he would have been fired after a year or two as chief design engineer for the Corvette.....(he nearly was!!!)..... this car would have failed in the long run (as the Corvette nearly did in '54).... and GOK what we would be driving now!!!!
Just my two cents from a Corvette sick-o... 1:1 & little....
