Wow...looks like another one of my 'wish list' models is going to be produced, at least in some form. I was searching for some info on the MFH Joe Honda books and ended up on their main page - one entry caught my eye with a little teaser shot, and the words "coming soon":

I got a little excited and clicked to see the rest of the pictures, which confirmed:

Even more excited - definitely buying this one. This car caught my eye when it was featured in a Motor Trend Classic article. I'd never heard of it, and there's not really a ton of info on it out there. Either way, I emailed MFH in December, 2011 about the possibility of a kit, and never heard back....

Now, I wonder what the "Lightweight Series" means....curbside? If so, a kitbash with an AMT 289 would be in order.
