Jackie. My 550 was not a Beck Spyder. I didn't say its an authentic 550 and in no way was meaning to sound pretentious by showing it. Its just a cool car. It is replica build by Vintage Spyder out of California. As far as I know a step up from Beck in fit and finish. And as it was owned by Boyd Cottington had a performance engine and suspension as well as one off custom Cottington wheels as they did the work on it as his personal vehicle. Although it is a replica it is every bit a 550 spyder, but nicer than the original.

Not at all (pretentious), and thanks for sharing it. It's a cool car regardless. It was driving me crazy though because I was trying to reconcile those little details. Thanks for confirming.

Yeah I knew you weren't paying attention yesterday when I was sending you pics! As far as I know it's the only one in the US or close to it.
