This month was full of awesome builds, and it's tough to chose my favorite/favorites. My overall pick has to be the Mantide. That car makes me drool everytime I see it. Some other personal favorites include the Cambird Z06, the super clean E30, and  then the Jaguar Hybrid.

I'm excited for this one! So, some questions I've got rattling in my brain are:

What do you, Stirling Moss, consider the greatest achievement in your career? If you could go back and relive one particular race, or season, what would it be, and why? If you were to give Formula One drivers of today some advice, what would it be? What characteristic is most important in a driver, is it determination? Is it a passion for the sport, or something else? Other than things relating to automobiles, what is your favorite pastime? What are some of the most important choices or decisions you have made or learned from? What would you say are the major principles, or values that you live your everyday life by? What is the greatest life lesson you have learned from your career? As you look back over your life, would you do anything different? And finally, what are you most proud of?

Sorry for the multitude of questions, I hope these are good ones, I just rattled these off during my break at work.

Every time I see an article interviewing the young Ricciardo I learn a little bit more. He's such a young talent, and he has a very deep routed passion for the sport. As much as I love Mercedes, I'd love to see Red Bull going wheel to wheel every race. Hopefully this young driver can help bring them the results they deserve.

Just out of curiosity, I know Larry was at the Hot Rod Drag Week (Wish I had time to meet larry in person at the event).. Is Speedhunters, or Larry doing a story on that event?

I love these types of articles. After reading this I have an awkward boner and a craving for one of those 2010 spec ft cars. I mean, after all nobody is using them right now.

The first time I saw this car back when it debuted, I didn't like it much. I thought "it's got too many angles and is different". But.. I've matured as you have mentioned. And time has passed. I simply do think this car was ahead of its time slightly. Now days sharp angles such as in the aventador and stuff seems normal. And I like the Mantide now. As jason pointed out, and if I was the designer, "I'd revisit the front end graphics slightly, and simplify the rear a bit". I'm not talking complete overhaul. But a few changes here and there could make it perfect.

I vote C. I would keep everything on proposal b except for the trunk/ rear end stripes. I like the look of proposal A on the back and trunk area, it's clean and simplistic.

Pretty generic question, but what is the biggest lesson, or lessons that you've learned throughout your years of racing? Is it that you have to have patience, etc?

Seeing as the poll isn't working for me. I chose the Singer 911. Though the Falcon F7 was pretty creative build as well.

Just a random question here. I probably already know the answer, but none of the current speedhunters crew are going to attend the event TX2K14 are they @Speedhunters_Bryn? The reason why I asked is because I feel like the event in and of itself is a cool thing and there is a ton to cover. The event showcases some of the craziest builds here in the U.S. When attending, you get to see the passion that drives them to build some of the fastest cars. It's a unique event. Also it really comes to life on the friday night. Then of course, there is the famous street races that go down that night also. What I'm saying is that there is plenty of stuff there if you ever want to cover it. Just thought I might throw the idea out there. I'll be attending this year to cover it as well for my personal enjoyment.

Wow. Well. Where to start? Hmm.. I know what I would like to see. For me, when I open up speedhunters, it's an opportunity to see into the minds of other car enthusiasts. It allows me to see what makes them tick, or do the thinks they do. And I love it! I've expanded my passion soooo much from this site, and I can't thank you guys enough. I would love to see more stories following builds from beginning to the end (or to wherever). For example, Taryn and her Datsun or Larry Chen and his also. I wouldn't have my passion for Datsuns if it wasn't for those two. See when I read those stories and watched their builds I lose myself in them. It makes me love cars even more. I don't know about you guys, but I would also like to see a tiny bit more F1 coverage. I couldn't get enough of it, even when I went to the COTA race 2 weeks ago. I would love to see some more U.S. car coverage. I want to follow builds of domestics and whatnot. That picture of that mustang in chapter 2 just made me melt in my seat. Anyways, hats off to everyone involved in speedhunters. I can't imagine what I would do every morning if I didn't have my daily dose of speedhunters. You all do a fantastic job and are all amazing at what you do. Thanks.

 @Taryn Croucher  It's funny that you mention Rocky Auto. Because the first thing that ever inspired me to get a z in the first place. It was the speedhunters article on one of their cars. The awesome power of an rb30 or even rb26. Then I realized that due to my budget, the L28 would be the way to go.

I'm about to go get a 240z here shortly, and let me tell you, your build has inspired me a ton. I hope I can take all of these lessons that you have learned through your build, and use them in mine. Your car is pretty awesome. Keep up the good work.

I dragged my dad over hundred of miles just to view the first F1 race at the COTA in Austin Texas.

You know for me this was a hard choice. I like how Jordan Adkins could capture the beauty and lifestyle around that Porsche. I however had to choose Kenneth Midgett because I was at that race also, and I know how hard it is to capture any formula 1 car in action. It takes a very dedicated person to get the right shot and so that why my vote went to Kenneth.
