We purchased the car from the previous owner who is renowned 550 replica builder Russ Rodriguez from Azusa California. It has been in our collection for the past 5 years, and as we transition into building our own Spyder recreations in aluminum alloy, it is time for this car to find a new owner to enjoy some quality driving experiences with. We have enjoyed the car for the past 5 years and have used the car frequently on driving tours and events with flawless performance.
This car is docile enough to drive in traffic or around town cruising on a date night, but potent enough for a spirited drive down a country lane, and canyon road, or a track day.
