New Kit Car for jetta w/ TDI

Smyth Performance is a spin-off from the highly successfull FACTORY 5 Racing. Creator of the MK4 (AC Cobra) using a donor 95-04 Mustang.
Mark Smith, co-founder of FF is doing the "GREENER" thing with the Jetta TDI.

Here is a link from auto blog.com. Watch the Video.........

Recycling Gone Wild: Turn your VW Jetta TDI into a Smyth Performance G3F [w/video] — Autoblog


Note his discussion about safty, fuel economy and car registration.

I have always want to do a 55 T-Bird kit (1 to 1 replica) full fiberglass body mounted on a brand new frame w/ rack and pinion steering.

This Smyth car might replace that dream.
