The exhaust system had to be custom made so I had Jiffy Muffler in Saint Johns build it with a Catalytic Converter and muffler to pass emissions. The engine compartment is customized to to be uncluttered to show off the engine.
I ran the car up at Mid Michigan Motorplex and it ran the 1/4 mile in 14.7 seconds.
I entered my car in the 2003 Detroit Autorama (Invitation Only) and won first place in my class.
I was handed a copy of Speed Style & Sound magazine during the show and I had no idea of how they got the photos for the article in the magazine because this was the first showing of the car to the public. I was told that they received it from the Autorama, they were photos I sent Autorama to enter the car. The magazine was a preview of what people were going to see when they went to the show.
In one of the photos I was talking to George Barris (www.barris.com) and he told me the Feroce was a breath of fresh air, there is no car like it in the complete show it looks great.
