Just wanted to chip in my tuppence worth of opinion.
Though I don't know what was said over at G&G's website about inaccurate replicars it seems to me that anyone willing to take on the task of building such a replicar ought to be patted on the back for doing it instead of ebing sl*gged off for not using the correct amount of rivets on the left hand door trim fitting under the carpet.. Know what I mean?
We've seen postings from people building Interceptors out of Capris, no one sl*gs them off, heck if I had a car that "almost" looked the part , and the cash of course, maybe I'd have a go and do something similar. But I don't have the time, nor do I have the inclination to do it. But that doesn't take away the fact that those that do are having a go at doing something more than just dreaming.
As for Adrian's Interceptor, I saw this car up close and personal when it was in the UK and though I'm no expert on movie correct acccuracies I couldn't fault it on anything, to me it looked like it wassupposed to: The Interceptor. Adrian however felt differently and said the angle of the roof spoiler at the ends wasn't totally accurate and he planned to air-saw them off and redo them "properly" Yeah well if it makes him happy, I suppose after doing all that work himself he's entitled to do whatever he wants to it's his car, his baby and he deserves to be congratulated on it. As does ANY builder of replicars. I actually prefer Adrians Interceptor now in it's MM2 livery.
I saw this quote from someone here, sorry I forget who it was but it says what I'm trying to say in a nutshell:
"Authenticity is just a question of money. How anal do you want to be?"
What I objected to so much about Sockpuppet's attitude was his automatically sl*gging off of the standard of workmanship that G&G had done, but without providing any evidence of this so called "shoddy" workmanship, which ultimately drove Gordon away from the board. He said his job is done. Well F**K him!
Hiding behind a false name is low, but what can we expect from someone like that?
Message to Sockpuppet, I don't give a fiddler's fart if I'm on your "list" or not. You're a coward for hiding behind another name instead of your own.
That's all folks, sorry to drag up the mud again but I had to say my piece.
