Panoz contracted me to construct the cages for the Abruzzi Race cars (as well as street cars, but those are another post!). I think only one car was ever finished, but I built 3 cages total. They gave me a 3D cad model of what they wanted and I built the jig and cages from that. I was quite pleased when they lined up about perfectly on the chassis – building an entire cage from a model without the corresponding chassis is a bit of a challenge. Some of the photos below are in my shop, and then the ones where the cage is on the chassis were taken at Panoz.
