Discovery Automotive's projects gives you a full play-by-play of our creations as they are being built. We hope you enjoy reading about these masterworks as much as we enjoyed creating them.

Current Projects

These projects are dreams unfolding and soon to be realized as such they are typically not presented to the general public until completed thus giving the owner of the gal the opportunity to discreetly share the project as it is unfolding. As stated; this is one’s dream being realized and not simply a gal being serviced. Each and every owner is unique as such their gal is also unique and often times a personal reflection of any number of things in their life.

Projects that are marked with a lock symbol (Private) are not available for viewing by the general public. If you are interested in seeing these projects you may request access by contacting our sales department.

Completed Projects

The projects are dreams that have been realized. As each project can be very personal in nature, it is left up to the discretion of the owner as to whether the general public may view the project.

.44 Mag Featured .44 Mag - Ford GT
We should begin by sharing that this gal was named by her owner; we were told that the name refers to how tall she is however once we opened her clamshell and saw her heart we suspect that her name has more to do with how she becomes "ballistic" when her hammer is tossed to the floor. Then add to this after a few conversations with her owner and the fact that she has seen the northern states measured mile for speed on more than one occasion the association to being akin to a very powerful bullet seems very fitting to us.
Ford GT
2KOOOL Private 2KOOOL - Ford GT
Her name says is all; "2KOOOL" which is exactly how we feel about each and every one of these gals that we see.
Ford GT
34 Private 34 - Ford GT
We have the pleasure to spend time with gals from all over the world and many times they arrive as a dream yet to be realized as such the sense of bonding has not taken place as such their project name often refers to what they are to become however there are also those gals that arrive at Area 51 for which there is no doubt that they are already a "Dream Realized" and that their time with us is not to for us to create but rather for us to insure that the dream never dies.
Ford GT
This gal referred as "AWSUM GT" with little doubt as to how her nickname came to be; all one has to do is spend a few moments around these gals and the term awesome will be heard over and over again.
Ford GT
Bête Noire Private Bête Noire - Ford GT
Bête Noire aka the "The Black Beast" as his owner refers to him arrived at our facility today to have his already stout bloodline enhanced as well as a couple personal touch items.
Ford GT
Big Red Private Big Red - Ford GT
This gal came to us the have a new set of pipes installed. The owner enjoys driving her very much however made it clear that he wanted to be able to hear what she was saying when compared to just feeling her as he mashes the "GO" pedal. Now there is no doubt that she makes him aware of everything he does when exercising her particularly if he is not careful because directly behind his seat is the heart of a beast; a hand built 550 HP supercharger power plant.
Ford GT
Bits and Bytes Private Bits and Bytes - Ford GT
This gal we refer to as "Bits and Bytes" is a dream realized as the result of a successful career in/with software development hence the project name; "Bits and Bytes".
Ford GT
Black Eye Featured Black Eye
The extreme transformation from 540 to Supercharged E39 M5 Build
Black Jack Private Black Jack - Ford GT
The name alone of this gal creates questions, even for us. Certainly she is a rare no stripe aka solid black gal however the term "Black-Jack" brings to mind the game of luck.
Ford GT
Blackbird Featured Blackbird - Ford GT
This gal was brought to us to have numerous personal touch items integrated with likely the most significant one being the up-swept door system. The gal's owner has been sitting patiently at bay for nearly a year awaiting this to happen as numerous twist and turn were presented to us as we migrated towards this point. Well his gal has finally landed at Area 51 and the project is soon to commence. In addition to the up-swept door system she will be receiving some cool electronic tweaks as well as Kip's stunning carbon fiber/leather center console cubby, Michael aka FreeFlyer's awesome 30 PSI boost gauge that once in place appears and operates as if OEM, and Shadowman's subwoofer relocation system.
Ford GT
Blue Thunder Featured Blue Thunder - Ford GT
"Blue Thunder" or at least this is who she will be when she leaves our facility because this rather unique Genaddi Design Group roadster conversion known as the GTX-1 came to us for a voice change.
Ford GT
D/A Ford GT Featured D/A Ford GT - Ford GT
The GT still has not been driven however several small tweaks are underway in preparation of the time she finally sees the road. A portion of the gal's nose is soon to have custom clear bra installed by the team "Premiere Automotive Aesthetics Group", Ford Racing's transaxle cooler is to be installed, Ford Racing's short shifter will be installed, and the OEM muffler will be replaced with AccuFab's rear exhaust section.
Ford GT
Daddy's "Fancy" Car Private Daddy's "Fancy" Car - Ford GT
This gal is referred to as Daddy's "Fancy" Car by his youngest daughter. The name "Fancy" Car is akin to "Baby Face" Nelson in that both are/were brutal. This gal is presently outfitted with the HUGE ominous looking black Whipple supercharger pressing 19PSI of boost into her heart and then it is being quickly blown out through the awesome ceramic thermal coated Stainless Works long tube header exhaust system complete with stainless steel small high flowing metal bed cats with the tips protruding through The GT Guys well designed rear bumper delete system.
Ford GT
Dream Catcher Private Dream Catcher - Ford GT
We should have said "Dream Caught" as the fellow and his family that adopted this gal remained committed to owning a GT40 (as was the case with many of us) since he was a young man and then when Ford made it known in 2003 that one was to be produced for the public he stopped dead in his tracks. The only question from that day forward was when which became a reality 8 days ago.
Ford GT
El Diablo Featured El Diablo
The following is a compilation of Abdulla's "EXTREME" El Diablo project.
Fade to White Private Fade to White - Ford GT
This gal came to us after a couple months of chatting with her owner; as is often times the case knowing what folks want to do is easy when compared to selecting someone to work with them through the process. In this particular gal's case she was in fact slated to be tended to by another and yet in the end she arrived at our door step looking for caring hands to make the dreams a reality.
Ford GT
Field of Dreams Field of Dreams - Ford GT
For many the phrase "Field of Dreams" creates a warm feeling within and to some respect we imagine that the owner of this gal shares these feelings too however the term "Field of Dreams" in this case refers to the many years of exhaustive and relentless work tending to fields from/through which his family was raised and some of his dreams realized; this gal is one of those dreams.
Ford GT
Flash Private Flash - Lamborghini Murciélago LP640-4
This gal, a Lamborghini LP640-4 came to us after having been tended to by another to have her vital signs checked and while with us we synchronized the operation of her rear air ducts aka her rear wings and the rear speed sensitive spoiler so that they open and close both properly and on demand.
Grey Black Featured Grey Black - Porsche GT3 RS
This gal referred to as "Grey Black" because of the name of the paint that Porsche applied to this, a GT3 RS that comes to us by way of Germany to be made ready to be exercised on both the street and on the track however before subjecting her to that which others may throw her away; this an act that we suspect comes as the result of her prowess nature as associated with her raw visceral performance and extreme agile handling we are going to methodically apply clear plastic sheeting on all of her high risk panels.
Homeward Bound Private Homeward Bound - Ford GT
This gal has had one heck of a journey already and yet she still has not seen a home. This gal was originally shipped to a Ford dealer in Canada with every expectation that she would promptly be adopted and then soon after be appreciated and exercised however this was not to be the case. After 2 years of being looked by folks traveling through the dealership in Canada a fellow in the USA got wind of her and even though he never met her felt that she would be a wonderful addition to his family. Once this decision had been made he reached out to confirm that she could in fact be bought back into the USA and once here be properly licensed so that finally she could be exercised and enjoyed as was anticipated a very long time ago. It was during this time that he contact Area 51 initially asking a litany of questions about what could be done to make her even more spirited when compared to her present factory offering. Ultimately having addressed all of the importation concerns the decision was made to purchase her and then to have her immediately moved from the dealer in Canada to our facility to massage her from stem to stern; this mind you even before they have ever met.
Ford GT
Inferno Featured Inferno
This Roso Leto gal came to us "RAGING"--hence the name "Inferno"--ready to be set loose aka be exercised. To date she has seen more than her fair share of sales floor display time as such now the mere act of bringing her to life has her barking and gasping for air as she goes through the process of clearing her throat with her ultimately settling into the wonderful staccato aka music of her 12 cylinders being heard as the 12 pistons are tossed around within her heart in such a way that it leaves no doubt that she is ready to have her legs stretched however before this will happen we need to methodically wrap all of her at risk painted areas so that during the process no damage is caused from debris along the way. Not only is she very low with a nose that will become akin to a small wing at speed but she also has orifices aka air inlet ducts at all corners that are large enough for a small person to crawl through as such we need to make certain that during the act of drawing copious amounts of air through them that the inevitable debris does not damage the surfaces.
Intense Featured Intense
Now this gal has been waiting patiently for the last several months until finally her time to visit with us arrived. There is no doubt that this gal caught her owner's eye as she is truly stunning and a mechanical marvel however she needs to be heard as well as seen which is why she was scheduled into our facility.
"INVSBUL" aka invisible is in our opinion the polar opposite of that which her name states; she is in your face "bright" go fast red and whether she is sitting still or methodically traversing through town she always appears to be the only gal on the road and a gal that wants and understandably deserves one's attention. She is stunning to look at and a site that for many is rarely seen and when she rolls through a town it is as if the road is her runway and she is the ultimate high fashion model presenting eye candy for all that fall prey to her.
Ford GT
Jack Henry Private Jack Henry - Ford GT
You read "Jack Henry" and then say to yourself; now that is an interesting name as such I wonder how it came too be.
Ford GT
Last Blu Private Last Blu - Ford GT
This gal has come to us for a variety of performance enhancements and serviced items as she is being made ready for a wonderful season of being exercised.
Ford GT
Last Stop Private Last Stop - Ford GT
"Last Stop" as this gal is being referred to has to do with her journey thus far.

She was placed on the market is search of a new home and low and behold a potential buyer was find or we should say a potential buyer found her as they were a great distance apart from each other. We were contacted and asked if we would consider traveling several hours to complete a pre-purchase inspection as our agreeing to do so was a significant component of the purchase consideration; this even though she during her life she had traveled very few miles and yet the investment was to be significant. We agreed and then as the days passed we were informed that the prospective buyer was to fly in and not only meet us but also the gal and see if it was to be a good fit. Well we arrived with an open mind, tools, and plenty of coffee as we knew that this was to be a multi-hour inspection process.
Ford GT
Love Private Love - Ford GT
This gal's project name is a testament to how her owner feels about the 11-99 Foundation as evidenced by her license plate frame. This Foundation license plate frame signals to all of their participation and "LOVE" for the Foundation. This is a Foundation that in some respects is hard to define and yet simple in ideology; it was created by a former California Highway Officer as a vehicle through which many folks within the California Highway Patrol are assisted; sadly it is most often associated with fallen officers however the Foundation reaches out and assist in many other ways too.
Ford GT
Maltese Falcon Maltese Falcon - Ford GT
This gal affectionately referred to as "The Maltese Falcon" comes to us from far away. Now we were told that her name comes as the result of how her parents feel about Humphrey Bogart, a reason that we accept without question however in as much as the Falcon is very adept at traveling great distances so as to have their personal needs fulfilled this gal "The Maltese Falcon" has done the same thing by traveling great distances to Area 51 so as to have her personal needs fulfilled as such could faith have played a part when she was named thus setting the stages for this trip to happen?
Ford GT
Midnight Private Midnight - Ford GT
There is likely no other color that the Ford GT was offered in that is so well depicted by a single word; "Midnight". The gals have a very rich dark blue color and as the sun fade to black so do these gals appearing as if they disappear into the night; they become nearly black.
Ford GT
Not Your Father's CSL Not Your Father's CSL
The Hayes Boys build a normally aspirated monster in AREA 51.
Out of the Pit Featured Out of the Pit
This gal was found in a pit appropriately in the Southwest and when we made mention of her we were asked to quickly capture her before another could and to bring her into our facility to be massaged a bit; all of this prior to her new owner meeting her for the first time.
Dodge Viper
Passing Through Private Passing Through - Ford GT
This gal arrived at our door from lands far away for us to tend to a few personal touch items in preparation for her continued journey. Her arrival was much later than scheduled as the result of events out of her owner's control and yet her schedule after leaving us was set in stone as such immediately upon her arrival we had to dig in deep as the tasks ahead were many and yet the hours were few to complete them.
Ford GT
Permanent Waves Featured Permanent Waves - Ford GT
This gal came to us after over a year of methodical planning by her owner. At the onset he was encouraged to envision believing that everything is possible and even more so that even though one's path may appear to be the same as another's it is the subtle often not noticed differences that insure that each path traveled remains unique. In time this personal project was defined; not that we knew what was to be completed at this time but rather what will be completed in time hence phases were defined. Even today the considerations within the phases are subject to change in fact some have changed and yet the phases have created a road map of sorts and a place to reflect upon.
Ford GT
Phoenix Private Phoenix - Ford GT
The term "Phoenix" has been associated for many year wilt the act of resurrecting something; typically from a very dark place however in the case of this gal the term "Phoenix" is more a rebirth in the sense that she is being freshen up after a few years of her being exercised and tended to by a variety of folks both acts which has her looking less than crisp when up close with her.
Ford GT
Pit Stop Featured Pit Stop - Ford GT
Now there are many great things that we are known for however having a pit crew ready when a gal rolls in hot wanting to be quickly massaged, serviced, and then set free to be exercise again is not one of them as we are very methodical both in our approach and the processes as associated with any project "however" in the case of this gal as the direct result of careful planning over the past couple months a "Pit Stop" is presently underway hence this projects description.
Ford GT
Raging Bull Private Raging Bull - Ford GT
Ford GT
Red Sled Private Red Sled - Ford GT
This beast referred as "The Red Sled" by his owner was brought to us for a bit of massaging. The primary focus of his visit is for us to install the very cool remote canister adjustable Penske suspension as well as give him a thorough check up as we perform a fluid change service. In addition we have discussed giving him a bit more voice however no commitment has been as of this time.
Ford GT
Road Kill Featured Road Kill
This gal comes to us after nearly a year of being displayed initially at SEMA in Las Vegas followed by numerous other specialty car venues across the country so folks could feast their eyes upon her however do not let the fact that she has been displayed dispel the fact that she has been exercised during every available moment collecting one "Road Kill" after another.
Rocky Private Rocky
This gal referred as "Rocky" and this particular associated project is all about the many people through the country that keep this dream alive. The fellow that holds the keys to her heart is a very passionate individual and when it comes to his gals they are tended to as a member of the family. In his early days he was smitten by a lady that brought him into the cool car fold as she was as comfortable wearing a dress or coveralls and could twist and tweak on a gal alongside the best. We were told of a stories during which she could diagnosis a problem and then grab the needed tools adjusting the likes of carburetors etc better than most could drop bananas in a juicer. She was and remains a true car person and certainly brought this interest and passion into their family.
Ruby Private Ruby - Ford GT
We present to you "Ruby". This gal was affectionately so named for a couple of significant reasons with the fact that her name references her color being one of them however what is even more significant is the subtle and very cool reference to the person aka Lloyd Ruby who won the first Daytona race in a Ford GT. Now in our books such a name could not be more appropriate.
Ford GT
Shadowman's Custom D/A Chevy Truck Shadowman's Custom D/A Chevy Truck
Just like "Old Yeller" this gal has been with us for far too many years to remember and has been faithful as the day is long. During her many years in the family she has been twisted and tweaked over and over and yet she has always been one of our gals that we simply never grow tired of.
Sick Z8 Featured Sick Z8 - BMW Z8
"SICK Z8" what a name for a gal that stopped by for a basic service and thorough inspection. In this case her name is what most folks refer to her as when they first hear and then ultimately see her and not a statement of the condition that she arrived in as she arrived looking the 9s and sounding simply wicked. Her owner shares that upon arriving at a typical automotive gather through the crowd as if an echo is rolling through the comment shared by many is "that is one SICK Z8".
Stealth Mode Featured Stealth Mode
Another AREA 51 Supercharged BMW M5 soon to be prowling around a neighborhood near you.

Over the past couple years the owner of this gal has completed numerous personal upgrades such as a custom D/A CF hood, wheels and tires, performance seat belts, and performance modifications such as SS headers, short shifter, CAI, UUC light weight flywheel/ clutch, front BBK, and differential from afar it was finally decided to ship her across the country to have a few more personal touches and performance modifications completed within Area 51.
Stig-mobile Private Stig-mobile - Ford GT
"Stig-mobile" as referred to by her owner as the result of his fondness for the show "Top Gear".
Ford GT
Super Silver Private Super Silver - Ford GT
"Super Silver" a project name that references her stunning color; a very unique color as presented on a Ford GT as well as the manner in which she is regularly enjoyed. As we understand; this gal spends a great deal, in fact most of her time participating in extreme motoring events during which time she is constantly being exercised. Now we have all come to recognize and appreciate that this is an act that these gals not only do very well but also do so typically requiring only a modest amount of service however every once in awhile even the best of the best; in this case "Super Silver" need massaging beyond the normal lube, oil and filter.
Ford GT
SV Featured SV - Lamborgini Murciélago LP670-4 SV (SuperVeloce)
Under the proverbial radar akin to the cloak of darkness this gal a Murcielago LP670-4 SV (SuperVeloce) comes to us as notably and recognized internationally as the "baddest" and maybe even the "maddest" Bull of all times. She is more powerful, lighter, and she is also the fastest Bull to ever be unleashed by Lamborghini. From the moment that she rolled into our facility it was obvious to all that she was purpose built and means business.
Testarossa Featured Testarossa - Ford GT
This gal aka "Testarossa" is as her name implies a redhead. Initially this gal, a boyhood dream was born out of good old fashioned American sweat equity aka hard work; in this case the years of hard work created the basis for this dream to be realized however even though she is a dream realized it was not long before his dream needed more detail added. This in much the same way that a fiction writer creates a story over time her owner constantly further defined his dream however making sure never to lose sight of her roots; he wants to personalize rather than change her. There have been a laundry list of typical items integrated thus far such a "huge" polished Whipple supercharger drawing her air through an AccuFab throttle body and speaking through the custom D/A and Fischer Motorsport exhaust system giving her both the heart and voice of a lion, a Ford Racing short shifter allowing her to sprint even quicker with an engraved ivory shifter ball on top reminiscent of days gone past, Kip's cool carbon fiber/leather center console cubby and stunning carbon fiber instrument surround and from this his dream and her place in his life continued to evolve.
Ford GT

Now this gal comes to us from afar; her owner is a State Highway Patrol Officer hence her name "Trooper".
Ford GT
Tungsten Bullet Private Tungsten Bullet - Ford GT
Finally after a very long wait this gal was able to be brought into the facility; it has been almost a year of waiting for all the proverbial stars to align themselves. The initial project was to integrate the upsweep door system however during the delay a few additional personal touch items were added to the "To-Do" list.
Ford GT
Unraveling Private Unraveling - Ford GT
This gal comes to us from lands far away after many months of discussing numerous personal touch items that she is to receive. During these discussions the stages were set for her owner to massage her with our assistance by phone however in the end the decision was made by her owner to let her come visit us during which we will becomes his hands as he remains the "Puppet Master" from afar.
Ford GT
Vanishing Point Private Vanishing Point
This gal now known as "Vanishing Point" comes to us indirectly via lands very far away. As was the case in the cult movie Vanishing Point arrangements were made to have her picked up and moved; in this case to our facility with the significant difference being that she arrived whereas in the movie sadly she met her demise on the highway before reaching her destination.
White Bullet Private White Bullet - Ford GT
This gal come to us as the second gal from the same family. Their first gal had her existence sadly cut short as the result of a construction accident that occurred only a short after her arrival home. After several months of searching the market this gal with merely 800 miles was located and then quickly became a part of their family.
Ford GT
White Lightning Featured White Lightning - Ford GT
This gal was brought to us after many miles of smiles with her owner at the wheel during which she has remained a thoroughbred each step of the way; this remained the case whether they were simply traversing through town or when she was being exercised under the most extreme of situations on a track.
Ford GT
White Rabbit Private White Rabbit - Ford GT
We have gals visit us from all around the world as such from folks with a very diverse backgrounds and that participate in differing walks in walk as such many of the gals come to us already named, other gals are simply referred to based on where they have been and or are project ed to go when they leave us , and then there are those that are named solely based on some significant moment in time that remains important to her owner and this moment is revisited every time they are together; "White Rabbit" is such a gal to her owner.
Ford GT
Yellow Fever Featured Yellow Fever
This gal came to us to only a few days after her new owner took delivery of her to be thoroughly inspected as a component of him getting to know her. It was also decided that the clear bra on her should be removed and replaced with a fresh custom installation. The clear that was on her was typical cut panels with all edges exposed and seams all over the place which naturally collect dirt and over time becomes disheveled looking. The process that we use is wrap the gals during which we carefully wrap the exposed edges so that once completed most would not recognize that she has clear bra on her.
