I’m a long time fan of the site. I think I’ve been reading it since
the late 1990s. It looked a lot different then. I’m glad it is being
updated regularly now.
I recently ran across a photo of a Lambo one-off which was just too
ugly not to share. It’s based on an un-stretched Mk2 MR2 and uses the
original roofline. While I think that roofline suits the F355 kits out
there, how can anyone in their right mind think it suits a Countach?
And while I applaud people who think outside the box (like the guy who
built a Lambo on the Pontiac Solstice) even when it doesn’t turn out
great, I think trying these things is what kit cars are all about.
Trying something new and being creative in hopes that it will turn out
great. However, a Countach on an unmodified MR2 just never had a

A friend sent me a line that Vito from Italy is hoping to find information on his kit car, An Alfa Romero replica type.
He seeks documents, manuals, brochures, you get the idea, Since I am far more savvy on the GT types I thought I would post this in hopes some readers could help Vito out on his car.
Looks like when I paid less than 3000.00 for my project Valkyrie and thought that was top dollar I got a real bargain, I had no idea these Avengers had gone up so much in value.
Steve sent us in a few photos of his flip top aztec project. He wrote that the car was purchased in Toronto last spring and is mounted on a 1969 pan. His planes are to build a tube frame with C4 suspension with a 355 Chevy and beefed up 4T60-E trans.
This should be one killer little car when its done. We can wait to see the progress.

I wish I had a bit more info to add to this post, but here is it…..
Larry just send in these photos of a Manta he picked up in Naples. Thats all!
Enjoy and as always if you are a kit car you would like us to post on price of his toys feel free to use the contact page and send us some photos and detailed information. We love to see what our readers are driving.
Brian sent us these great photos of a Bonito Project he just picked up. Said he has plans for it but did not get into what those plans might be. He said he would keep us updated on the progress. We cant wait to see this one finished!
We get emails all the time on kit cars that people are trying to sell. A lot of the times they are your run of the mill fiberfab car, bradley, etc. We try to limit that sort of stuff being posted for sale. This one just came across my email, and I would say it is worth saving.
This is a Matula, later known as a Talon GT. This one is not your average Body according to the person trying to get it sold. I have not verified any of this info, it is just what the email said.
