Anyone on the fence about a GT40 should get off and check out Ron's car. It is spectacular and built amazingly well.

Ron, I'm sorry to hear you are moving on. I hope it's for a new project.

Beautiful car and one I would seriosuly consider, but alas it has come a little early for me.

For a couple reasons I made a consious decision to sell my current GT40 and purchase a later version and was thinking of a CAV as they have the best headroom. Ron's RCR is most definitely a lot of car for the money, but there is still some work to do on my current 40 to get it to a saleable condition.

First off beautiful car.

This may be a silly question, but This is a replica ??
if so what year is on the id plate ?
I ask because we have some interesting rules for older cars.
Just tossing around some ideas !!

Beautiful car! Wish I had the cash and the room in the garage! Best regards with the sale and your next project.

Hi my name is Chuck Merken I thought I would take fly and see if you would be interested in a trade for my 1996 47' Fountain Lighting. My boat is in AS NEW CONDITION and has always been stored inside and professionally maintained. I am running triple 525SC stock unmolested Mercury Marine Bulldogs. The boat is sitting on NEW all aluminum 11" I beam trailer, triple axel with electric disc brakes. I would like to send you photos of the boat. I am located in Temecula Ca and the boat is in enclosed storage in Dana Point Ca. This is the top of Fountain's line up, there are only 2 other 47' Lightings on the West Coast one is owned by Dennis Rodman and the other is owned by Tony Robbins.

Boat tops out a 80mph, the shower, head, stove, refrigerator have never been used and the forward queen bed has never been used.
