Gardner Douglas factory visit

Just back from Gardner Douglas (manufacturers of Cobra replicas) near Newark. Met Meena and Andy.

Gardner Douglas factory from GDs website
The initial questions that I had have been answered. Andy is very patient with the "stupid" questions and clearly has a passion for his cars. The gel coat finish looks really good, but there was a brand new painted car there as a comparison (that looked awesome).

Quick blast in a GD to hear that tuneful exhaust note and feel how good the suspension is. Nearly as smooth as my Jaguar. Great power/torque delivery from very low revs (LS3 engine).

So now I need to make some decisions and potentially put my money where my mouth is!
