    Beautiful pieces.

    Always wondered if you were still doing this or had moved on to new projects.

    heavily modified for performance. Although, not to the level of GM's car

    I just emailed with Mr Linton as to the status of these parts, even though the posting is a couple of years old. Per Mr Linton, all the parts have found homes. He also mentioned that my inquiry was not unusual, so there is still active interest in Z8 specialty parts.

    I left this thread here as the work that Cartridge did was so stunning I wanted there to be a historical record of it. Since they're now all gone I'll make it as sold in the top post.
