After much thought I have decided to start a store on the website. As some of you know I have been producing FF emblems for years now as well as vinyl decals and such that I normally sell on eBay. I have decided to expand the product offering and will be adding new items often.
I am also pleased to announce that I have found a manufacture for the Fiberfab medallions that so many great fiberfab cars are missing. For the time being the selection will be limited to just a few cars but depending on the interest I may produce them for the lesser known fiberfab cars as well.
We are also going to be offering Some price of his toys items as well.
This is an exciting time as it is something I have wanted to do for many years but just never got around to it. If you know of anything you would like to see become available let us know.
Well this might just be the first one of the day . So Painted by the students of local College, and complete with a 1600cc Dual Car (port) engine this Dino rep can be yours for the low price of $12,500 . Nope this is not a misprint . From the craigslist post ….
“just painted by students at Lakeland college dual car 1600cc rear vw engine
interior needs to be refinished rare car its a Karma have all original build sheet from custom classics of california would be open for partial trade (no text will be responded to) ”
I mean I guess you can had several thousand to the price because it is “rare” hahahahahah
On to the pics
This has been a favorite car of mine since I first laid eyes on them. This one would be one heck of a project . One that I have no time in my life for. I am sure you could beat them up on the price a bit, and this may have even been one that has been sold a few times. They say it needs a alot of work and they are correct. Its $1200
From the listing….
The Amante needs a lot:
one door glass
one rear window
small floor pan patches
a few headlights/one blinker lens
gas tank, etc
Guess these is a buyer for everything but $2500 for this bad boy? I dont think so. From the eBay auction….
“For auction is one Fiberfab gt-12 kit car: body, front, and rear clip. this body fits on the Volkswagen bug chassis. This body has no cracks in it, has the front, rear, and door glass. Included with the kit is a extra front clip, Volkswagen bug chassis, Corvair 6 cylinder flat air cooled motor, motor adapter plate, 2 VW bug transmissions (one on chassis one out), one transmission has the 5 lug axles, new floor pans, wiring harness. Local pick up only, please bring your own trailer, the one that the kit car is on is NOT included in the auction (but is for sale”
For $1000 it would be a good deal for someone.
Sorry for the lack of updates lately. Life and business has been busy for me. I was curious what sort of interest there is out there to have any of the fiberfab medallions made? Specifically the Avenger and Aztec 7 ones. If there is a need I can expand into the Valkyrie and other cars. These would be cast from the same material as the originals and be the same size/weight as the originals. I do not have a firm price yet but I would expect them to be in the $25-$30 each range.
Feel free to let me know your thoughts.

I usually like to keep things on the automotive side here but this is something I really feel I need to share. On june 10th 2014 armed with $20 I joined a program with over 50,000 members. The idea was simple Using major companies like eBay and Amazon you could make money. This was not some get rich quick thing, not affiliate marketing, or MLM. At its basic form it is a set of training videos.
I went into these training videos with no expectations and fully expected just to cancel my membership pretty fast. As I started getting into it I was blown away at how easy everything in the videos was. So about 2 days later I started using what I learned and since then (and little under a month) I have made over 50 sales on eBay. The end result is over $6000 in sales, using other peoples money. Not bad if I do say so myself.
Im not going to bore you with specifics, or anything like that. I will just attach a few screenshots of my paypal account over the past two weeks for you to see. That should pretty much give you an idea that it can and does work. Of course these results are mine alone, and you could have better, the same, or not as good. But think of it this way. $20 is what it costs. You most likely spend more then that eating fast food, getting coffee, or whatever.

Happy 4th of July!

Well Check this out. Jay sent us this photo of a pretty cool car. I only know of one and that is in David Lorings possession. It appears to be a Mantis Habua but I sent David an email to verify it. Its a cool body and I hope the owner can build it, or at least try and sell it at a reasonable and not “OMG THIS IS THE RAREST OF RARE KITCARS ON THE PLANET” Price.
I cant wait to get more updates and info on this car. !!!

As some of you may know I run an Oval Track. We do stock car racing, drifting, autocross. In addition we have a 2 drag strips. Anything with a motor is pretty cool in my book. Something I have been pretty vocal about over the past few years is Drifting. Several of my friends have gone on to compete in a pro level in the years I have been involved.
This weekend formula drift is in Miami. These events usually have crowds of 10-20,000 people in attendance. Drivers are sponsored by Ford, Nissan, Chevy, Toyota, and just about every tire manufacturer out there. This is a pretty big deal. Live stream for this event starts at 12:30 etc and if you have a few minutes you can watch it here. www.formulad.com/live

I have posted a few things that are slightly different than what POHT traditionally has written about it. I might do a bio about myself in the next few weeks, but for now I am off for the 14 consecutive year to one of my cool gigs. I am loading up the car, and trekking to the Carlisle Import and Kit Nationals. Those 14 years have seen me serve as head judge for Carlisle’s Standard f Excellence competition. This is an event where a team of 3 judges take a look at cars that owners have elected to see if they meet a, well, Standard of Excellence. It is normally a progressive completion where competitors will enter three or four years to achieve the prized 5 Commendations. If you are going to be there check out the Judging Saturday by the main grandstand, or better yet enter and see how you do. I have seen some excellent kits over the years from an exacting Diablo replica, to a wide body 356 on a Porsche pan and an airplane motor.
Now that I have done a shameless plug it’s your turn. While in Carlisle this weekend I would love to meet some of you. If you have a car there I would love to see it. I am going try and assemble a series of articles that I will publish on this great site over the next few months. It is your chance for a few of your 15 minutes of fame! Friday I will be wondering the grounds sporting one of my new Price of His Toys polo shirts. Saturday you will find me judging by the grandstand. If you see me stop me. If you want to drop me an email so we are sure to catch each other on the grounds or downtown firstname.lastname@example.org will find me.
