Thanks to “Letterman7″ over on the samba for letting us know about it. Well this is one of my favorite kit cars ever. One that sadly I have never owned. The Aquila was built by American Fibre Craft in the 1980s. The car is said to be losely based on the BMW M1 also of the same period. This is a pretty rare bird. While production numbers are not completely know, I have heard 50-100 and also seen data plates to back up those numbers.
On eBay right now are the production molds. There is just 1 photo of them so it is really hard to tell what the overall shape of then are. Also there is really no info on the listing , and the seller has a -1 feedback rating for some reason. Not sure what that is all about. Now the kicker is the price tag. Has it listed at a $10,000 BIN Price. Frankly I do not see that, nor do I see half that, but who knows. The cars have come up from time to time in the $1500-$3000 price range for projects. But once again, who knows?
Anyway auction number is 221166789965

2013 is fast approaching and we want to hear from you. Price of his toys is a 2 man operation. We post when we have time, or when we see something interesting. In 2013 I want to start adding more things you would all like to see. I was thinking about paint and body tips, fabrication tips, and things along those lines. All great things to help you move forward on your build.
I have tossed a few ideas out, now what about you? What is it that you would like to see more of?

Can’t blame the guy for trying. This guy has spent about $10k on this hand built car . This one of a kind car is sporting a Volkswagen chassis, a Nissan farming engine, and a rough hand built body. Apparently the car is primarily used to transport fertilizer to his parents farm. drive on man, drive on.
Well this is pretty cool. I had no clue that Jay Leno owns a 1965 Fiberfab “Stingray” With money leno I am sure this is not your run of the mill, fall apart kit car. This is an old post from Jay Leno website, but then again nobody ever claimed we were speedy at price of his toys.

PRI was back in Orlando for it’s final year this weekend. Owned by SEMA, the PRI show showcases new products from 100s of manufactures. The 3 day show draws attendees from all over the USA. I decided to go on Thursday because they had a breakfast with special guest speaker John Force, and they also have their “Happy Hour” were they give out free beer and food at the end of the first day…haha
Anywho I am not going to bother you with a commentary on everything. Here are a few photos of the cars that had on display.
