How does Vector’s story go?

In early 90s, Vector wanted the CTTC engine used for their cars. Didn’t happen, but....

Sad but completely the norm in China. I know many people and projects that the Chinese had ripped off and stolen IPs from.

Including the garbage interior and carbon fiber parts from the guy in New York.

So many learn the hard way on these things.

Sad that Saleen is going through troubles again... Steve released an article as well back on the 31st.

It would probably be wise if we picked up a few common body parts for our Saleens as in the future I just do not see them being around. Sad because they are some enjoyable rides.

I am hearing more on the ousting which may be happening. Steve might be out again. Time will tell, but quite the storied saga, and sad.
