      It is still around, but not in my hands. I did a full history of the car and it's trials and tribulations here...I bought it in 1995 (I was the 2nd owner) and sold it in 2003. Yes. A mistake. I know. At least it's still around.

      Hubert was the original white/black Mk2 however it was copied a few times over. The one you're talking about is another Vortexer and much like the Multiplicity concept, the more times its copied the worse it gets.

      Just ordered these 18x8s for my escort. They are made by Compomotive but only sold from a company in Spain who got Compomotive to reproduce them and therefore have the rights to them.

      I'm glad to see Compomotive is back in business in the USA!

      The website still says "We’re still working on a pricing program as well as listing the Compomotive portfolio in the products section of this website, but in the mean time feel free to forward inquiries to info@fifteen52.us." so that could be delaying some of the interest.

      They're actually listed in the store section. We've got a few models/sizes still to fill in, but as Compos are priced based on size/width regardless of design, you can pretty much see what all the prices are.

      That blurb on the homepage was a first update and dated a while back, but I figured people would check out the actual store for pricing.
