If I remember well, (Kip remove the plate as obviously nothing is from Genaddi now) the number was 64 !

Wanted to participate to rally, but I have got so many problems with the US Automotive Administration, US customs and Insurance for staying in the US with a Monaco plate - not to mention that I had to surrender the Monaco plate here as I missed the deadline for the tech survey ! This car is the best that America ever produced and I don't understand why Kip's project was not backgrounded by Ford.

Not a hi-jack, but your car was one of very favorite at the Rally. Love the color scheme. Surprised the "Saints" did not ask you to do some promo work! haha

Beautiful car!

And thus is my desire. I love black cars, my wife hates that I love black cars. But I think the most wonderful color combination would be either a black base car with either red or sliver bra. I had a hook on a black no strip car and was going to try to do a red stripe herigate bra and my wife nixed. For my black OCD, the blue/gold is much calmer :)

I'll add that a yellow with a black or silver bra would be a good combo. A Tungsten with a black bra would work too.

Thank your for the comments, Stevo.
It means a lot to me and my crew, when owners appreciate our work.
I've been going through a heavy family crisis, as of late, so this really cheers me up!

To the questions about building GTX1s; yes, we do offer a full GTX1 roadster conversion.
We re-tooled all of the components associated with the original design, making additional refinements.
We also offer a one-piece hardtop for the existing cars. Additionally - we are completing the development of a soft top for the GTX1 that retains all of the sealing and latching refinements we developed for our hardtop design. The first article was built for Stevo, and we will post details soon.

Stevo after all you have been through, I'm glad you will finally be able to enjoy the car.
On another note I received the notice last week for the Chapter 7 filing of Mark Gerisch. The Genaddi experience just never seems to go away.

Stevo/Kip Almost think the car looks better with Kip's top on than off! How are your CF wheels holding up? Ours (on 34) are six+ years old and still look ok.

Kip,
Sorry to hear of your family crisis. But am looking forward to the soft top and the completion of my hardtop.

If I remember well, (Kip remove the plate as obviously nothing is from Genaddi now) the number was 64 !
The number of completed cars are in the 30's. The number designated was either by customer request or something that Gerisch pulled out of thin air.

Well, the varnish started to crack some years ago on the CF wheels. They are not rigid enough to keep the varnish on and furthermore they are not totally airproof ! I 've ordered new HRE wheels which can clear the Wilwood calipers.

Hi Stevo:

Congratulations! I'm sure you'll find the wait worthwhile.

I'm considering asking Kip to re-do the roof on my X1. Can you send me at sbw@fedbanklaw.com (or post on the Forum) some more detailed pictures of the roof Kip installed?

All the best,

Steve

Hi Rick:

I received the same depressing Bankruptcy Notice. Thankfully, life goes on.

Missed you at GT Rally 7 in New Orleans. Great trip with Bernard Guerin as my co-pilot, except when I mistakenly took a handicapped pedistrian walkway for the front driveway at the hotel and destroyed my splitter! It's truly amazing the things I'm capable of doing while stone-cold sober AND actually trying to be careful at the same time.

All the best to you,

Steve

Awesome GTX1 thanks Stevo sharing the pics , i´m wondering how many GTX1 are in Europe? do you have an idea? of course when i´m in Monaco i will have my eyes big open, Monaco has so many exotics but a GTX1 is very very special. I hope you will enjoy this privilege.
Regards
Pierre

Please have a look at:

you have all the building process.
I'm just waiting now for the soft canvas (from Kip).

It's worth doing it. Kip has performed an excellent job. I hear no noise at all and the car is waterproof.
If you are tall, maybe it's worth considering to lower your seat !

Bonjour, Pierre
Pour autant que je sache il y a une GTX en Hollande. Ca n'a pa été facile de l'homologuer en Monaco car maintenant il faut passer par la France !
Serais heureux de vous rencontrer à Monaco...

Thanks for the pics. It couldn't look more professional! Kip has truly outdone his employer in both design and execution. Congrats on being the first to own and enjoy the fruits of Kip's amazing talent and labor of love.

Is this a new car or an older conversion? Can these still be done?
