The "Budget" replicas are not for anyone in particular. And they are not going to be full rebuilds with all new parts, we are going right over the cars and replacing parts only as necessary. All the rust we are fixing.

We will not be going for 100% movie correct interiors, IE: the 2 door has a black head lining, and the trim although black is incorrect. We are cutting the build-up costs as much as practicable.

So we will not stress if the gear box is a C4 or a FMX, Our 2 door is using a fresh 302 and most likely a single rail box. We do know that they will both be V8's, (as you would) and the 2 door will have the right wheels and operational exhaust, same as the full replicas.. kinda expensive but they sound great.

The 4 door "budget" car will have all the right body kit on, correct roof lights and all that. So they will both look correct.

So we should end up with still a reasonable car, One that looks right but not the price tag of a full ground up new trim, new glass, new parts replica.

We are aiming to keep the final price between 12-15,000 USD. At this stage we are going to finish the cars just as we can, and then put them on the website.

We don't even know the final configuration, or price of each car yet. We don't even know which one will be finished first.

So if anyone is interested in a budget car it will be best to sit tight and wait for the pictures to come out, but we are looking at getting one ready at around Christmas at this stage, (if all goes well).

Sorry that I can't give any more info, but we are progressing as the budget and time allow.

Anyone that is perhaps interested in a cheaper replica and wants to get a preview look so that they get a chance to say yes or no before the web pictures go up, just send an email to either me or Grant and we can keep your address on file and send you some shots in the week before we put the pictures up on the website.

But remember these are not the "Ducks guts" they will be good cars but don't expect the super accurate quality of the Washington replica.

PS: If you want a video they are still around, I am running low but the NTSC version of "Last Interceptor to Los Angeles" can be ordered directly through Jim Martino in the USA email address...

Or I can still supply.

See you later, I am about out of time (here at work).[/font]

Crosendork, you still around? You started this... Did you get the answers to your questions? What kind of performance cars are in Poland?

Gordon, is the $12-15,000US just the purchase price there in Australia? Shipping is extra, I imagine? Your cars sound awesome. I just bought a '75 Gossy and will be making it into an Interceptor replica. I'll try not to bug you too much with the questions, ha-ha.

Answering for Gordon: Yeah, shipping is extra. Figure $4-5K depending on what shore it hits.
