If there is one thing I really dislike about our Superformance Daytona Coupe
- it's the fact that it is bigger than the originals.  Sad they are also
supersizing the GR-1.  Maybe they should call it the GR Super Size instead
of GR-1.  Of course, will only mean they will sell more to super-sized

With all the media circus focus on the Wall, this little bit of news may
have slipped through the cracks relatively unnoticed;

Superformance has been granted rights to build the Ford GR-1 concept, which
would be one of the first low volume cars to be built under the new 2015 law
when it goes into effect. It all looked and sounded great right up to the
point I read they have the original in hand for dimensions and will be
scaling it up by 10% to provide more passenger room.


A footnote says that a company in Illinois has also been ranted license to
reproduce and build new 1966-1997 Broncos.
