It wont appeal to the Griffith purist, but i like the Speedster look - although i would prefer it in a solid Dark Blue or British Racing Green with black centred polished split rims and very few decals.

Not sure about the screen - full aero or leave alone, that one looks as if the top edge is right in the drivers eye line?
Vented bonnet looks a bit suss too!

Nice dash though, same one is in mine. I've been told its a Leven product but not sure.

On balance though its still recognisably a Griff, IMHO the original and the best of the Wheeler era cars so of course I think it looks good.

As said above the purist will be having a baby! Personally i quite like the speedster look although i also am not sure about the screen!
Horses for courses so just enjoy it and keep flying the flag.

you obviously prefer your 4lt chim to this griff, but why make such an off the cuff remark as "scrap"?

it shows individuality, the owner has turned the car into what he really wants, he doesn`t expect it to be to everyones taste, but you a least have to give him credit for having a go, instead of just saying scrap!!!nono

Yes I do prefer my 4 ltr supercharged chim to the griff but then I like my Ferrari 430 to my chim, that griff was a really nice looking car (and fast) I just don't see why you would do that to it.

Because its his money and his choice and maybe he did not fancy being the same as everyone else!
Still no reason to call it scrap confused
Bit like the ignorant view taken by some that all ferrari drivers are wkers smile
