Nope.... in a nutshell... here's what happened:

1. The house I was renting (in Hong Kong) with a garage was sold, so I moved back to my place (without garage). In Hong Kong it is VERY rare to get a place with a garage, when I lost the one I was renting I couldn't find another one that wasn't a squillion dollars to rent.
2. At the same time, work (in Hong Kong) got crazy busy so I shipped it to Chicago to www.schwartzperformance.com ... I have a 1/2 share in the Chassis side of the business. The plan at the time was to move to USA in a couple of years.
3. Having a baby this year, so plans to move to USA cancelled.... I'm moving back to OZ.
4. Was in Chicago last week to get the project moving again.
5. Bought a full set of front and rear suspension + brakes from a Porsche 997.
6...... The project is underway again!!!! Schwartz Performance are building the chassis.... then shipping it to OZ and Im gonna finish it.

Good to hear this is going forward ! I was afraid this might become another one of those projects that gets a great start, stalls, gets stored in some secret location, and is lost until someone with no clues finds it and sells as scrap for $25 to the local salvage guy. Please hit us with an update whenever possible.

Congratulations on the baby and work going so well. Please share pics of the build when they are available. I know that I'm not alone in saying that I want to see how you sort out the details and see this car completed.
