Hello from New member!!!!

Hi everyone, just joined the forum but I've been browsing for few months now. I have owned couple exotics and couple projects that never got finished due to the fact i'm not that mechanically inclined and it was always a challenge finding the right person willing to take up on a custom vehicle. The more I read the more I'm getting seriously interested in purchasing a completed SLC, seems like an incredible machine. I'm not a track guy and it would mostly be used as a weekend fun car on cruises, car shows etc. I never owned a race car in the past, I had a Murci Lemans car project for couple years I sold and I can buy it back but as time passes I'm leaning more and more towards the SLC.
I'd love to see a SLC in person I was wondering if anyone in Chicago area owns one I can take a look at. Thanks everyone!!

Re: Hello from New member!!!!

Chicago isn't far from Superlite near Detroit. Why not visit the factory. If you are not mechanically inclined, there are a couple of professional builders on this forum who can build one for you.

Re: Hello from New member!!!!

Thanks guys. I could take a trip to Detroit thats a good idea as well but I was wondering if there is an SLC coupe in Chicago. I'd be probably more interested in buying a finished car slightly used, hopefully a good deal will come along.

Re: Hello from New member!!!!

Go see em! It's part of the journey! Deal? deal on a preowned SLC? Hell if I was looking to buy a SLC I would be all over that. Go have a look.

I went three times (side trips to east coast) to look and ask questions. Fran always made time for me. I needed the trips to get comfortable with the whole thing. I REALLY looked at the 917 the checkbook trip but in the end went ahead with a SLC. I'm glad I did...............but I really liked the 917.........

That would a tough call, 917 is also one of my all time favorites. But somehow I got really interested in the SLC lately so the goal is to buy one by the summer. Thanks for the tip
