David Kindig and his talented team have been designing some of the best cars on the planet.  But Dave has always wanted to create his very own one-off, unique car, from the headlight to the taillight and everything in between.  A true signature car.  This year at the SEMA 2021, KINDIG-IT DESIGN shared his new creation. 

He calls it the CF1 Roadster.  This car was built without sparing any expense.  Every inch of the car has been shaped and designed to be something unique and special.
