No.... There's 1 more similar to mine, but it wasn't touched, I was also out in the clear and more visible.

Just finished the thread. Great build, but that last update really blows.
Hope those guys get what they deserve, aka being run over by a bus!

This is now the second time reading your thread! Impressive work! hope you were able to fix the window and recover from the theft. Any new updates on the build? How did you attach the carpet to the ceiling?

Decided to rivet the fiberglass skins in to the metal railing behind it, because it was currently only glued, but I found it was warping on hot days, now there there isn't any bubbling or flexing on hot days

Pulled out my 20K Kubota/Powetech generator for some servicing, new turbo gasket, some rewireing and fresh paint. Along with all filters, oil etc...

I absolutely love what I've built, and enjoy it on most weekends like this.

Yes, I put that car in the trailer so when we go away and set up, we have wheels to drive around locally

morefire - you rock!

Amazing build, and incredible setup. I wouldn't mind the fleet either!

I noticed the Bowmanville CAT scale tag and thought holy hell - this awesome dude is Canadian!

After you painted the genny - the guy in the bay helping looks super familiar.. Oshawa fella?

I'm trying to remember his name - years ago I lived out that way and had an E39 M5... thus my screen name lol. Might be your bro, might be an uncanny look alike!

Knew quite a few RX-7 / MR2 / other car guys out that way as well. We spent a lot of time at the kart tracks, as well as other friends of mine at Shannonville on bikes.

Whatever you're doing in life - you're doing it right! Nothing beats racing and traveling in style!

That is a work of art and the name morefire makes a lot more sense!! That car would have been perfect for the old boys meets at the north end of 427 @ 7 between Brampton and Woodbridge. Out of 50+ cars, my M5 was 3rd slowest just by looking around. Was like FnF but for the 35-60 crowd that had money. Fun to watch I tell ya!

Have you taken it to Mosport?

One day when my toy hauler adventures lead me your way, we'll have to get together and shoot the breeze.

Likely at that point I'll have a Literbike, Supermoto, and a dirt bike.. to tackle all of the tracks or terrain as needed

Canada needs a Supermoto track like Pleven, Bulgaria has. Mindblowing fun to be had.
