The Car Chasers Were Here

Rock West Racing on TV?  Well, not exactly.  The Car Chasers came to our facility to film for an episode that will be airing tomorrow night. Tom McBurnie was there to help identify if a specific Ferrari was actually the one used in the show Miami Vice. So it or isn’t it the real deal? You’ll have to watch to find out!!! Check it out on CNBC.

Here’s a link to preview The Moment of Truth.

Sneak Peek at the RW Spyder RS

We’ve been working so many projects that we haven’t told you about our latest one, Rock West Racing’s Spyder RS. This is destined to become a classic in its own right.  It’s a tribute to the classic 550 Spyder but built so a taller person can fit in it comfortably.

We let the cat out of the bag a little early to Car Builder magazine while we were visiting the SEMA Show.  There is a nice piece in the magazine on page 28. It will tell you more about the new car.  Check it out! Digital subscriptions are free.
