    Default Scarab # 154 has left the US

    For those who have interest in Scarab I can tell that # 154 has been sold to Norway. I have been told that this is the first " factory " car that has been sold out of the US, but I cant verify that.

    I`m really looking forward to receive the Scarab in mid oktober, and thanks to David who make this deal happend.

    Regards from a happy new Scarab owner

    Hopefully you didn't pay $300,000.00 for it. :-)

    Back in 1981 I saw a white Scarab while visiting family members in San Diego CA, that car lives in my memory bank. Today I own a Z with an LS1 conversion ,she brings me lots of smiles.........................Enjoy your V8 Z in Scania

    Scarab # 90 is in the UK... As far as the Scarab Registry knows, these are the only two factory VIN Scarabs outside the USA/Canada. Scarab # 155

    Just ran across this thread. I'm David and sold the car to Rolf. I do miss the car but at the same time you move forward. The last owner contacted me about 6 months ago wanting to by the car back. Funny I tried to sell it back to him before I listed it for sale.

    Currently I am building another V-8 car, a full on project. 1972 with a 383 stroker. It will most likely be for sale as soon as it is completed and tuned.

    Here are a few pictures of where I am right now with the car (will have G-nose) NOS items: tail lights, front turn signal lenses, door panels, G-nose head light covers. LSD, coil overs, sumped fuel tank, on and on. Well cant post pics will try later.
