Greg fabricated the shifter...
Greg fabricated the shifter handle from flat stock and stainless steel ball bearings. He said welding it was a nightmare; to do it he had to drill the stock where it contacted the bearings and rosette weld each point.
Though Greg let a computer control the engine, he elected to shift for himself. To accommodate the Saginaw four-speed transmission, he modified the J.W. Rod Garage chassis to take a Pete & Jakes brake-and-clutch pedal assembly. He drilled the pedal arms vertically on the engine side of the firewall and horizontally on the interior side.
Scott Stratton at S&S Custom in Kenmore trimmed the cabin. Like the rest of the car, it bridges generations. The pleats and seat rolls, for example, are quite traditional, however, like the body's molded dash, the flat material finishes and the door panel insert shapes are nothing if not modern.

Greg used very limited edition Classic Instruments gauges. They're basically Hot Rod series gauges with a pinstripe motif by 'striper Von Hot Rod. Von striped only 100 sets, each different than the other. Donn Trethewey applied the stripes around them.
And so goes the rest of the car: it's new style in old clothes, and for every traditional reference it makes, it counters with technology.
And the weird thing is, it works.
