Looks great, Mark! Can't wait to see Smurf II running around in its new incarnation. It'll be a good opportunity for someone to own a vintage restomod without putting out the huge $$$ for a Singer. Hope it stays local.

She does look great! Hey Mark, was wondering what you are going to do with the suspension? Thanks for allowing us to tag along :beerchug:

My plan is to preserve the "teeth" the car has and make sure it can run just as fast as it ever has. I did take out the cage and went from rear coilovers back to 33mm rear torsion bars like the car ran with most of its life. It might loose a second or so at Big Willow but that's about it. Probably wont be out there anytime soon though. I am working with a possible local buyer that is very interested. I always like the chance to buy it back one more time.

Just posted latest pics. Click on pelican thread on top of this page. Go to last page for latest pics. There is also a few shots of my next build on the pelican thread also. New thread might say "Converting 993tt to GT2 clone". Smurf will be at Encinitas car cruise next Thursday eve. And yes car is for sale. Big surprise there. Heading to Rennsport next month to be in vendor row display then up auction on "Bring a Trailer" Mark
