This Mako belongs to Wayne Fields. It was bought on e-bay, April 2002, from Indiana PA. The car was purchased without an engine or transmission (the way it sat since 1974). The frame has been sand-blasted and painted all as new. The beast is now powered by a 396 with the 400hp 427 Tri-Power intake & carburetors and a M21 4-speed.
Wayne has also informed TCGOB (and we are embarrassed by our lack of knowledge on this subject) that only one Mako 2 was ever built. It cost GM 3 million to build and it was also destroyed by GM shortly thereafter.
