Ok...I just received the first of the many catologs I requested to start the restoration on Sinclair. What in the world is up with the Ronster (A version of the Mustang Kit car)?

I'm going to rant for a second here...
1. What is up with the original style being tweaked and updated for the new models?
2. Who in their right mind would buy a Mustang Kit car?

Sorry....I'm a firm believer of let the old classic style stay classic. Don't make them modern and "Fresh". I'm also a firm believer that Kit cars are for the rich yuppies that want something cool, but don't have enough brains to do it without a step by step diagram!

Please note these are just my thoughts from spending way too much time in this state!

Thank you for letting me vent, I needed it!

Andria

Lol, people either seem to love it or hate it . I am not sure what you mean by Mustang kit car? It uses a stock Mustang coupe and is then modified from there. The ones Mustang Plus has done were coupes they saved from the wreckers that everyone else would have just said "trash".

I have seen the Ronster in person and personally like it . Its something different. I also dont have a problem with melding new and old together, to each their own I say .

Ok maybe I should clarify...

Driving home from work I saw a 65 mustang with a really poopy paint job (it was a really bad lime green and dakr purple flame job, you could see where the paint ran from a bad masking job) up an a 4X4 frame and a 69 that looked like it had a mixture of the old original body in the front with a 00 back end! You just can not mix styles like that.

I'm sticking to my opinion of if you buy an older mustang fix it correctly!

I like the first one but, like the first Viper and Prowler,--no windows----[OR TOP]! Well, it's Ok for bragging rites, or whatever, but kinda lacks practabilty. So you can say 'who wants practability??? Most people! No it's not a kit car. In a sense, it's like the Eleanors. Expensive and limited to a few who want or can afford it. It's an individual thing.

"an individual thing" ...and a surprise that more than one individual wants one.

Not everyone with access to torches and a welder has good taste. The retractable conversion for Mustangs was another i'm none too fond of.
