    I love the look the Lasers have. The Head turning, Eye popping, WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT LOOK! To bad i can’t afford one. Why is the car being sold around so much? Must be something wrong or at least not totally up to par? Just Asking?

    Is that Puch just not hacking it for you picking up the chicks?…just kidding,

    Sounds like you are either misinformed, jealous or a bit of both,
    It’s ok, it happens to some people when they see an uber cool exotic car some people just get that way over them.

    The good part is almost anyone who can afford any car can easily afford a grass roots kit car.
    So you need not feel left out.

    90 HP from a VW engine is actually hopped up,
    A VW based kit car is very light and very peppy for what it is, Shannon said it better than I ever have, adding to that,

    I am guessing about 1% of people who build a “grass roots” kit car ever take it to the track The few that are racers are purpose built and are plenty fast.

    I don’t believe that a bone stock Pinto will really spank a well build VW kit car but even if it did I would much rather been seen puttering along in my Laser 917 than stylin’ in some faded yellow 71 Pinto… but I guess you can haul that puch in the back of the pinto, lol

    You don’t understand stereos or paint or all that car crafter jazz?
    Then I doubt I can explain it to you , but people into car crafting be it a vw kit , street rod or import tuner all want to make their car a better and more personal item,
    We take pride in our cars,
    Some of use want sharp paint and a booming stereo others want a fire breathing engine,
    It’s all about the persons personal tastes and touches they do.


  11. YES! They are totally street-legal.
    YES! They are extremely fast sitting still.
    YES! Mine still turns heads any time I bring it out.
    Mine will be my company car once I get the yellow paint and racing decals on there.

  12. Well, two comments Seth —

    1. The cars are very light and actually get pretty solid performance out of a lower power engine.

    2. How many people with sportscars actually track them? 5%, if that? Unless you’re actually racing your car, who cares — it’s just posturing.

  13. Seth says:

    The Lazer’s do look fast just sitting still. The problem is that most of these cars are as fast off the line as a 300 lb man riding a Moped. A ’71 Pinto could out run one of thes. I don’t understand why so much money goes into the stereo system, paint etc, but will still have the 90 hp VW engine.

  20. I just bought a Bugatti kit car that is complete and was running and being driven a few years back. But it has never been titled or registered. It was assembled in CT by its oiwner from a kit and VW chassis.

    there might be no documentation.

    I’m in NY. Any advice on how to get it titled here?

    Thanks Bill

    That is just about the coolest thing I have ever seen.

    Great site. There is so much crap on the web when it comes to kit cars and it’s very refreshing to see such a clean and informative site. Thank you and keep up the great work.


  26. The13Bats says:

    A very nice Laser and as nice as my Full frame “D” show car but I just can’t warm up to the Countach or any wing on the Laser and never liked the Laser bumpers, just ruins the lines,
    I can’t believe all the time this car has been listed it didnt sell, I still think laser prices will start going up someday,
