      I believe that image was for the Carbon C1 reveal at SEMA, and not his shop in Utah.

      But I absolutely agree that all his work is superb.

        I don't think that image was from SEMA because he had the CF1 at his outside display https://www.daumphotography.com/Even...21/i-G956Mg6/A

          Does anyone know how much an EV conversion would roughly cost? I was thinking it would be a fun project to take a C3 and doing an EV restomod.

              Don't know for sure, however, Kindig quality Corvette restomods can easily run 200K or more. In electric...I wouldn't even venture a guess.

              Dealing with his wonderful shop is definitely in the category, "if you have to ask"...........

              He's pretty booked up with folks who appear to have a bottomless pit to draw from.
              '64 Silver Grey Coupe (custom paint)- still our favorite
              '13 White/Blue Diamond 427 60th roadster - favorite late model
              Several others including two C7's

              '20... Zeus Bronze Coupe, 2LT, GT2 seats, Natural two tone, Body color accents, Pewter wheels- 10/1/20😀 GAME CHANGER

                Believe it or not, the average cost of one of his builds is $600,000-$700,000.

                  Aside from the topic of his builds, which are fantastic, does anyone know if his show has been cancelled. It seems all shows now on TV are from the past. I am a huge fan of his show. Thanks.

                    Agreed, Kindig does incredible work. I'm not always enamored with his stylistic flourishes, and his creations are usually too slammed for my tastes, but the incredible craftsmanship is undeniable.

                      The full camera crew was there a couple of weeks ago when my buddy was there.

                      So it looks like brand new shows are coming in the future.

                          I watch one of his new shows and it looked like they had new workers (actors) and tried making Kindig more involved himself. Thanks to his wife he has made a lot of money. That's why I am jealous of him.
