They make a lot of fuss about the wheels.... and I think they're the worst part of it. I appreciate the engineering that must have gone into
them to make them look like wire wheels, but for me they're just too big and too low profile on the tyres. If they had made them a few inches
smaller they would have suited the car much better.

Not nearly as much as they've wiped off the value of the car...
You think it'll be worth less with the Foose name on it ?
I think it will be worth less with those wheels on it.
Edited to add: I see that they've also narrowed the suspension, both front and rear, which will mean that the geometry is less favourable than
standard (and those ultra-low profile tyres will be much less tolerant of camber changes).
So not only have they made it look worse, they've also probably managed to make it handle worse.
I love so much of what they have done...but the overall effect doesn’t quite work for me.
Loves: the front, the BONNET (not hood!), the rear, the interior, the screen rake (always looks too upright on later models)
Hates: The wheels - too big too wide. The proportions.....something in what he has done has made it look too long and low which ruins the balance of
the design - I thought it was the aspect of the video at first but when he started talking about the sill modifications I saw it wasn’t.... I think
it’s the combination of the sills and moving the back of the cockpit forward...
Having been around E-Types all my life (my dad has a burning passion and has restored several) I know them inside out. The Foose interpreation
doesn't do anything for me I'm afraid and I dislike the wheels on it rather a lot. The wheels are simply too large with tyres too low
Personall I find the Eagle interpretation more pleasing - pricey to acquire one though!
