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.

Hey all ,
Been busy in the garage again. This time with a 1993 Nissan 240 sx . This 240 started life as just a stock KA24DE engine. After a teardown and refresh by Eric Bosworth Orlando it is now sporting a T3 Turbo running 8psi. It should be putting down around 300hp when it gets on the dyno for a proper tune. It is a fun little car to drive with all the bells and whistles like working Heat and AC. As always for the right price the car is for sale…lol
On to the photos!
Would any of you be interested in seeing more cars like thi on POHT?
Here is a pretty sweet Aztec 7,
I do not know why but for me some cars have more heart and soul than anothers of the small color , make, model,
This is one for me, the interior is stunning, looks to me like a real import exotic,
The engine will never be mistaken as “just another VW” with speed to keep up with the looks this might just be the one for you if in the market for an Aztec 7,
And the auction is past reserve meaning the high bid gets the car…lets see how it turns out.

ford gt40 replica (avenger gt12x) – $2500 (inland empire)
“Selling my 1972 fiber fab avenger gt12 prototype (ford gt40 replica kit car) for $2500. The car is a 3 piece prototype model the company made but never released. Has a custom box frame, fiberglass body and 4cyl flat.corvair motor and vw.trans.. Independant front and rear suspension. 2 seat rear mounted motor lay out. No vin. I bought it for 3 grand a few years back. I wanted it as my next project but mybheart isnt in it. has NO VIN. the original owner never registered it so once you are done you can register it as whatever you want. will provide bill of sale. no low ballers or trades. i dont have room for anymore stuff. these vintage kits were uncommon and this model especially since it has the external scoops. all scoops on the car are functional and the wheels are american racing magnesium wheels. SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY. NO BS. 9096841031 ”
( Since CL ads expire I included the ad text above )
This is being hailed as a special Fiberfab prototype never released and GT40 replica,
I love Avengers and Valkyries more so BUT I do NOT call them Replicas, inspired by the GT40? sure, replicas? no way!
I tell looky lous my Valkyrie is Lola inspired, I think they resemble the Lola that the real GT40 was built from.
I really doubt that this car is a one off, I see nothing different than any of the zillion other Avengers that were released,
He mentions all the scoops are functional which was up to the builder, but by no means is “rare” the higher scoop looks larger to me but again so many of these cars were builder modded that proves nothing as far as this being one of a kind,
These vintage kits were NOT uncommon and the Avenger is one of the most produced of all kit cars, so he is mistaken there.
Fiberfab did offer a box frame that used Corvair suspension parts, but this one is said to have a Corvair engine or the VW gear box, so it’s either a transaxle with a flipped ring or the engine is rebuilt to run in reverse to stock.
I see avengers in this condition go for free to perhaps 5-800 and with no VIN which is akin to you stole it in Florida I really do not see this fetching 2500.00 ( I didn’t pay that for my valkyrie in better more complete condition )
Irony, he ends ad with “No BS”
But if you think I am a quart low and find this car a bargain by all means ante up and give it a loving home.

Ok everyone. Please forgive me for this post. This car very well be the hardest car I have ever had to look at. Apparently it was used in a bad 80s movie called black moon rising . The plot according to IMDB goes something like this….
“A professional thief is hired by the FBI to steal a data tape from a company under investigation. The analysis of this tape, will prove the criminal activities of this company. As this thief is discovered in his attempt, he hides the tape inside a prototype car, but unfortunately there is someone else interested in this vehicle. “
I wish I could muster up more interest and enthusiasm in it, but I cant. The car is for sale on eBay and you can find it here.
Bradley GT | Thu, 01 Nov 2012 Posted by : Donnie
Check this one out guys http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&pub=5575009554&toolid=10001&campid=5337106048&customid=&icep_item=190745493244&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229466&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg
This could be your only chance to own a, well a Bradley GT!. Thats right this beyond rare car could be yours. Well all kidding aside, I emailed the seller because his auction stated this ” Unless someone can send me confirmation on another one I will say she is beyond rare” . Well of course I sent him craiglist links, google photos, this site, and the bradley gt forum but he still seems to think it is beyond rare and did not want to hear any of it. I even told him I had one of those beyond rare bodies just sitting around.
So if you would like to have some fun feel free to let him know that 1000s of these were made!

I admit I love this car, and it’s not a Kelmark but the better looking Magnum.
There was very few years that you could flip the ring in the IRS VW tranny but I guess this would be Okay with 6 cylinder power, when I hung a Buick 6 off my Avenger VW tranny I lost first gear.
What I don’t like is you loose the cool trunk when you go mid engine with a Kelmark or Magnum,
Either way….this car is sweet.
This is one of those “almost” kit projects that pop up for sale from time to time.
It started as an Aztec 7 but left all that putt putt VW stuff behind, this mean baby has a full tilt custom built chassis and transverse v8 power. ( I have to wonder will that rear mounted radiator keep it cool when things get hot. )
Seems no expense was spared in this build the passion and desire shows and I have to admit I feel badly for the owner having to sell it before seeing the dream come true. When finished I can see this as the ultimate Aztec 7. I would love that chassis under my Valkyrie.
The owner openly admits the body might not be to everyone liking and adds that being the chassis was built for a VW based kit car that the chassis could work under many other VW based kits to get a go that keeps up for the show, I would do some measurements to see if it would fit your body, just because it was made for “vw based” does mean it will fit all VW based kits with out some cutting and fitting. lets face it with a little work and tweaking regardless of body choice this could end up being a true super car.
While the investment was many times the asking price if you are bucks up and 15 K sounds like a deal, hit them up and give this car a home and the finish it deserves.
