The U.S. Patent Office has approved our application for a patent for the Catfish. The Notice Of Allowance lets us know that soon we will have a packet on our doorstep that includes a U.S. Design Patent.
Below is a picture of the patent renderings. You’ll notice that while we just released a rendering with a windshield this month, the drawing has been around for over a year. Windshields will be backwards-compatible (with work), and won’t be available until 2014. I wonder what else we have planned…?
I love what you guys are doing, but I am wondering if there could be any plans in the future for a retro themed body work. I love the styling of some of the older roadsters like the Triumph TR6 and the Datsun 2000, and with your custom work on the frame and mechanical bits, I feel like something along those lines could be an amazing option for your customers. I realize its early in the process and that your company is working on getting started, but with some planning could it be possible?
Thanks for the words of encouragement. Our first goal is to get the Catfish production rolling, and then to add the race model, the windshield option, and a few other features. We Do have other cars in the works–retro-modern cars–but there’s plenty to do until then.
Excited to hear about some of the company’s longer term plans. Keep up the great work. I cant wait to order one of your products as soon as I can find the right donor car and do the necessary prep work.
