Well, it is a 21st century replica of a 20th century car, hence the differences in air filters, wheels etc. Also it was built for a Playmate of the Year! so basic taste in wheels probably didn't come into it. We don't understand women anyway!
Those exhaust manifolds may be custom mandrel bent, but they look a bit too tight IMHO! and a bit small!
As for who the car was built for...Karen McDougal who was Playboy's 1998 playmate of the year...she is a bit of a high performance nut. She's been known to own various high performance and exotic cars like a ferrari, lambo, Bentley, this GT-40, several Vettes and if I remember right, a superbird as well as several bikes of all sorts including one made by Orange County Choppers.
here's a 'safe' shot of her...safe as in not offending the kiddies!
