Build Thread DF Goblin-kit Car
I just found out about a mid-engine kit car based on the Cheby Cobalt!
It's made just outside of Dallas, Tx, in Red Oak, Tx called a Goblin.
Their web site has some info, glitz, and as many others, plenty of missing info, data, and intel.
Now I am not the all knowing GM delta platform guru, thought I do have a frw screw drivers and I have stayed at the Holliday Inn Express more than twice.
I know without a dought I could assmble one these cars.
Now I do like the concept of a mid-engine roadster and first glance the goblin looks, to me, a crossetween a VW's Chenworth sand rail/ dune buggy and the Prisoner's, Lotus 7. And I do like the concept of both
Last night a quick search for reasonable donor car yielded Cobalts with as little as 40k miles for little more than shipping fees. Now as you can imagine, most of the donners, examined on line, might not pass local safety standards and were transported to the insurance yard by wrecker.
Another aspects include drive train mods including power, transmission & gearing and other creature comforts such as heater, AC, & tunes.
So chime in!
ask, suggest, tell or offer or help. All are welcome
I hope to drop by there shop tommorrow and get a little more intel to share.
So if the Admins & Mods allow this is a Cobalt modification I am looking at, not knowing what direction it will go or if it will ever mov under its own power. What I do know is I have been enjoying my 08 and having quite a bit of fun with it.
