Very impressive work done - Mathew.

I would love to see you working on more cars like this. Somebody rightly said "laughter is timeless imagination has no age"

Go green

Hats off to your creation Mr. Mathew. It is a great effort and the outcome is also equally brilliant. If only you are head of engineering in one of the INDIAN car manufacturing companies... sigh..

Here is a thought - If I had enough money I would like to start a custom car building company with you. There is a market potential for atleast 10 -15 cars a year in tbhp

My Salute Sir! This is an absolute work of art. _o-< (Kneel down smiley)

I guess there will be a long que very soon for the offer Mathew sir has posted. I stand 3rd from the front.

Seriously speaking, yes, this indeed is a very good business preposition. If you guys want to create a group, we can really start this with Mathew sir's help.

Mathew,
been ages since i last came and met you at your residence in bangalore and you showed me around the car and took me on the quick spin around the block. simply loved it and the amount of detail and effort u had put into it. jus saw this thread active and thought i'd drop in a line and say 'hi'.
my blue replica back here in mumbai is just parked and my regular work has taken over my spare time. hoping to get back to building another one some time soon but not before someone can amend that MOTOR VEHICLES ACT in this country. its a real pity but i would have traded professions if i could make a living out of building these :-)
do PM me your number again Mathew and i would love to come by when you're free and see you again the next time i'm in Bangalore. What we spoke about then went into hibernation since the recession hit. but i would love to revive it when the time is right.
and to everyone else its great to know this thread is still up and its still a topic of interest.
Rizwan, Mumbai.

well, I don't know about vintage cars so just appreciating from the visual point of view that it really looks too good. Surely, it must have demanded lot of hard work, passion of course more money! Shall I dare to listen what it would cost to owe such custom made car?

More interesting thing for me is that this thread is starting up something which I was wondering since the day I knew (not joined then!) about Team-bhp. Whether this people (Team-bhp) have their own Service Center at some selected cities? I got bhp-ed this year only and as far as I know there is no such outlet!, so why don't start one with the help of some veteran like Mr. Mathew and Mods?
