    What a great video!

    What's interesting is he explains a bit about the styling of the cars. Some have criticized them as being "retro" and stealing from the past. But the US regulations REQUIRE him to do so because the odd ball law he's under was set up really for replicars and not totally new designs.

    Good to see Jim here just being himself. He's a funny guy.

    Baja Boot
    SGC says all five of its two-door Boots for this year are already sold out, ..... Once the two-door models are set, a four-door version of the Boot will follow for 2021.

    so many completely different projects going at once, it's crazy, but, he's getting it done.

    Wonder what the relationship between Jim and Jalopnik is like

    Jalopnik needs content and gives exposure, Jim provides content and gets exposure. win/win
    All Jim's SCG content appears on his Twitter and Facebook feeds.

    Might be wrong but by the way they always write about him was of the impression he provided them with something more than just content...

    You mean the way a major manufacturer does so through paid advertisements and trips to exotic locals w/ gourmet dining and 5 star resort stays for drive events? Does he do the same for all the great coverage from R&T and the euro mags? Maybe he just walks in their offices w/ a shy grin and a stuffed Halliburton Miami Vice style. Doubtful. I know some folks aren't Jim fans, and they may even have legitimate reasons personally or professionally. Fine.I get it. But what he is accomplishing is nothing short of amazing. I have to follow through random FB posts due to his no longer being involved in Fchat, which sucks. I'm excited for his production cars, race cars, and the bad *ss boot. Rock on SCG!

    Nothing very different from manufacturers who treat journalists with regalia and the occasional "spy photos". Par for the course if you want to build cars and have people know about them.

    Jalopnik usually does a “full disclosure” paragraph when they get freebies so was wondering about Jim

    The rear wing is original NSX-ish, they seem to have raised it. Love the idea of a manual 3 seater though! Hope to see them getting built soon.

    The car uses many design elements from some great cars of the past, much like any modern design many things have been done before. I think its a super fresh take and certainly the best looking exotic to ever be thought of on American soil.
