Okay so not really a 100% kit car these things do have their roots firmly in the tradition.
I recall the heading on the old Magazine ads was something like “Whether your blasting through the boondocks or turning heads on the boulevard…”
The Vandetta could be put together in a day or two with pretty much normal hand tools,
This example is one of the nicest I have seen in 20 years and has the added 40 look front end, while he says it has “custom” side pipes I recall JC Whitney selling Air cooled VW side pipes, crazy things left the engine took a hairpin bend then up the side then in to the side pipe, they were different on a rear engine car.
He says “trades” I wonder would he would want my wifes PT Looser?…I doubt it.
