Decades later, enter Sarasota Café Racer, Roger Feikema, Braden River Engineering, Bradenton, FL. Roger was successfully producing Jaguar XKE conversion kits for Mazda RX-7 platforms before he decided to clone the Scarab.
“I was in my 20s when I saw a Scarab race at Road America. It was and still is a beautiful all-American sports racer, and I wanted to bring it back and make it available at a reasonable price. And bring Chevy power into the mix,” said Roger in an interview with Kit Car Magazine, January 2004.
