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. !!!

Note: I’m in Mexico until the New Year, but keep on emailing me your cars to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll post them on my return!
Schmitty who owns the Mantis Aegean a few entries back sent in this set of amazing brochures from early kit car designer Dave Loring, whose designs are said to have been ripped off by the Invader GT and the Kellison Shark. I especially love the cab that he designed for the Aegeon — I hope someone modifies their Invader to include something like that!
