  1. People ask me questions about the Duke SS 100 all the time, which is natural since even non-car people recognize it doesn't look like a modern car. Here are some of the frequent or colorful questions: What is it? I used to say "It's a 1939 Jaguar Replica", or a Replica of a 1939 Jaguar. Now I tend to say, its a 1985 Duke SS 100. A company called Classic Roadsters, LTD made these in the 1980s in Fargo, ND. What Year? Again, I used to say "a replica of a 1939" or similar. I think now I am going with '1985'. Yes, but what Year is it like? Jaguar made cars that looked like this in 1936-1939. (Actually, everyone made cars that looked like this in 1939, more or less.) Before Jaguar was Jaguar, they made a car like this named after the company at the time, SS, and the top speed, 100 mph, for SS 100. Oh, is it like a Great Gatsby car? Well, Gatsby was an Anglophile (loved all things English). Actually, the Great Gatsby novel took place in 1925, and Fitzgerald probably had a bright yellow 1922 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost in mind. What is it built on? They used a custom chassis for this car. They made them in the mid-80s in Fargo, North Dakota. Response: "Oh yeah, I can tell it is a custom chassis." Real or Replica? Replica What will you take for it? My answer to this question has improved since I finally got past the rear spring issue and the Duke is running well!
