    Saw the car and meet Dan at Detail Fest in West Palm, really nice car and great owner. He was won AJ's pick wand was interviewed for the show Competition Ready, although he said they cut out the part where he gave credit to Hot Rod Dynamics. I guess no free advertizing.

    One of the nicest 55s out there and he drives the hell out of it. He purchased a lot of parts from us and showcased our newest stainless door strikers at the nationals .

    Joe lutz and hot rod dynamics build a lot of cool rides.

    I'd love to see the car, and wonder how much it cost to build. Didn't it take like 3 years to build in a full-time shop with who knows how many people working on it?

    Beautiful car. I'm sure RD can find something "wrong" with it. LMAO!

    I was reading an article a couple days ago that said the AME IRS uses a Strange center section made for the new Camaros. 9.9" ring gear and based on Dana 60.

    I'm guessing it was pricey
    I'm betting it was a $400-600K build.

    2080 hours per year, 3 years, 1 guy full-time, $60 per hour = $374,400 plus parts ~$75K-100K.

    I doubt one guy working on it for 3 years could finish it by himself. And the HRD shop rate is probably higher (mine is ). The interior alone has to be $30-40K. The frame and associated parts is probably $30K.

    I recall that the Kindigit 55 Nomad was a $500K+ build, and I think this is comparable.

    I have talked with Dan a couple of times, and although he never said what the car cost, he did say there was an original budget that was exceeded, sounds just like the rest of our projects. I think your estimate is too high Cnut, there was a lot of time during those three years that the car sat without work being done on it. He did tell me that he had to make choices because of the budget, like he had a used engine and trans installed, low mileage camaro takeout if i remember correctly. My guess on cost is between $150K and $175K, no hard evidence just my feeling from talking with him.

    I think it is great to see a car like this being driven as much as it is.
