GMCBearcat is on a distinguished road
Default GMC Bearcat

Hi all, (Greetings from Brisbane Australia).

I recently bought a hand made car from a deceased estate sale, it was built around 2007 and uses a Twin Six GMC motor. The reason I called it a Bearcat was the old guy who built it used a photo of a 1914 Stutz Bearcat as inspiration. Also as it's made of of bits and pieces, (a Toyota truck chassis and running gear, and a Commer truck gearbox), I went with the largest component the GMC engine. I've ordered some name emblems from the 3D printer, we'll see how they turn out.

My next job is to get it road legal, THAT is going to be interesting!

Cheers
Matt

Now that is a work of art! I think I like everything about it.
Do you guys have a "project car" licensing where you could drive it without all the modern nonsense added to it?
