Just in time for the 1996 season the car was finished. A year later, the car was involved in an accident, leading to a new front. Since 1999 the car is in traditional California Look, before that it was a Resto Cal Looker. In 2001 fenders with upright headlights and Lucas turn signals were added, the decklid became convertible shrouds.
