We're getting close. Check out www.1933twentygrand.com for updates on the project car we took over in April. Looking forward to seeing everyone there. We definitely learned a lot over these last few months and have enjoyed every step of the way..

The Twenty Grand II looks great. Is it a full-sized replica?

Although our club is focused on the preservation of original ACD cars, I always like seeing nicely-done replicas. They have the ability to capture the public's imagination as they are very drivable and feel more at home on the road than they do in a showroom.

If you get me a number of detailed photographs, I'll get the posted here. I look forward to seeing you and the car in Auburn!

The entire body was measured from the 1:24 scale Franklin Mint model and then blown up 24x. I can't even imagine the work involved in creating everything from scratch. Fortunately for us, the body was already formed and we just had to finish it and do the fun stuff..

Hey Bob, I am afraid I going to disappoint you there. The car had a 351W motor when we got it and it still does although Tuesday we will be receiving the polished supercharger which will put us around 320HP similar to the orginal SJ's. Hope you can see it in 3 weeks..
