What do you think ?

This is what i found:

"This car is amazing, and better than any other kit I have ever seen. It is built on a 1985 Fiero base, and has a Buick Riveria Super charged engine in it that puts out about 300hp. The car is built to exact specs of a 328, right down the every emblem, It even has "Ferrari of Ontario" plate covers on the license plate. I purchased this car only 2 years ago, and have only put about 800km on it since then. It has never seen rain or snow, and has never even been driven where there was any salt left over on the road in early spring. Both myself and the previous owner treated this car amazing. Several components have been sourced from real Ferrari's including Mats, badges, horn etc. The Dash looks great, and the Seats are black Leather. The engine also has the exact Ferrari layout. I have parked this car next to a real 328 GTS, and trust me, people can not tell the difference. I have it insured as a 1985 Fiero, with no collision, thus the insurance is dirt cheap. This car is very inexpensive to operate. It was built by a professional machinist, as well as a class A mechanic, and the engine was installed by a race car company called Racetech in Woodbridge. The car is Automatic, however a stick has been installed to look like it is Standard (New after these pic's were taken). "

What do you think ?
Is it worth buying ?

I gotta say, that is the best kit I have ever seen.
I wouldn't buy it unless it was dirt cheap though....like VERY VERY dirt cheap. Which it probably isn't.

Hmmm....yes, you can tell it's not a Ferrari. It is a good kit, but still looks like a buick engine. Ever see a 328 with a fuel filler exposed on the side? I guess people sell these to fool the people who can't tell the difference.

It is a very good kit, but don't expect Ferrari-performance or Ferrari-feeling. Replica's are not really my thing, but if you can't pay for the real thing... I would save my money a few extra years and then pay the real thing rather than buying a replica.

WASTE OF MONEY, BAD INVESTMENT.

This is why he had to get the replica first, probably not to good with his pennys and dimes.
