As was already stated, insurance companies look at their bottom line and total cars based on that. We perform most of our own labor and have some awesome parts hookups (new & used) so the cost for us isn't bad. And they make great track cars.

A few more and we'll have enough for a SE 86 Cup

But we'll install whatever the buyer wants.
I have a Jackson Racing OC.

Not necessarily. The most cars I have had titled in my name at one time is 6.

1 converted dirt race car
1 tow vehicle
1 wife car
1 my street car
1 my son's car
1 my daughter's car

I had 4 kids but, at the time, only two were old enough to drive. I got to maintain them all and pay insurance on them all (minus dirt car) but I only got to drive 3 of them.

Project 5: - Update 2:

Had a delay getting the body parts painted, so still waiting to get those back and get final assembly underway. Still in the process of removing the plasti-dip from the emblems, paint correction on the rest of the chassis and cleaning up the interior and such. Got new tires mounted and here are some close ups to see our detail work:















Also have the state inspection paperwork filed for this one and plan to get it inspected the same week as Hot Lava, then take this one in for the recall.

And they just keep coming...

Project 6: - Update 1:
This 2014 DGM Limited is being built for one of our good friends, track buddy, beer drinking buddy and Champcar teammate.

Mods already purchased to be installed during the rebuild:
- Essex AP Racing "Sprint" Front Brake Kit
- Ferrodo DS1.11 Brake Pads
- Speigel Front & Rear Braided Brake Lines
- JDL Unequal Length Header
- JDL Overpipe/Front Pipe
- Jackson Racing Radiator / Oil Cooler Combo
- Racecomp Engineering Tarmac II Coilovers
- 17"x9" Apex Racing Wheels





Disassembly has begun and our parts list, and some part procurement has started as well. But won't get fully into this one until we get at least one of the other 2 out of the garage
