Carlisle 2006, Conventions, VW Beetle | Thu, 24 Aug 2006 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
I wish I could remember the name of the kit (maybe someone can post it), but I really liked this modified VW with a truck rear and a Rolls-Royce-esque grill. Check out the custom made rear bumper/wing by the way.

You can click the business card on the right for contact details, but here are a couple photos of each of Kokopelli‘s two Lotus 11 models.
Avenger, Carlisle 2006, Conventions, FiberFab | Thu, 24 Aug 2006 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
I totally forgot I had this stash of photos from Carlisle! Here’s a great looking black Fiberfab Avenger GT-12 for starters.
Carlisle 2006, Conventions, K-1 Attack | Thu, 15 Jun 2006 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
One of the most “complete” looking kits out of the box, in terms of looking like a mass produced vehicle that’s gone through years of refinement, product testing, and tooling is the Slovakian K-1 Attack by K-1 Styling. The kit includes everything but the donor car, a 1990-93 Honda Accord with either an F22 or H22 engine (including the 220 HP S-Type VTEC). I think my favorite part is the exposed front suspension.
Carlisle 2006, Conventions, Evoluzione, For Sale | Thu, 15 Jun 2006 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
Probably one of the most attractive body kits to come out for the Pontiac Trans Am (this is built on an ’87), this Euro Works Evoluzione sports a rebuilt 350 CI v8 tuned port engine, 512 cam lift, ceramic coated headers, flow master exhaust, performance chip, rebuilt 350 turbo and a 2500 stall converter, plus all new tinted glass, new seals, new interior and digital dash, 13×17 and 11×17 wheels and Pirelli tires, and victory red paint.
I’m not sure if it sold at the show (please tell me if you know!) or since, but the contact information was Roger at (434) 489-2065.
Carlisle 2006, Conventions, Packard | Thu, 15 Jun 2006 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
Built in England in 1966, this ’33 Packard replica sits on a VW chassis riding on wire wheels. And as you can see from the close-up photos, the exhaust has been rerouted to the exhaust. That said, it was a really unfinished kit that looked very “fake” in comparison to most of the replicas out there… but with only a little work I think this could be a very handsome car. At Carlisle they were asking (and I quote, slash-out included) “
$8,950 OBO Offer – Trades”.
Carlisle 2006, Conventions, Noble | Mon, 12 Jun 2006 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
I’m not sure that the Noble really counts as a kit car? I mean, the whole thing is built for you other than the transaxle… But in any case, it was one of the head-turners at the show and one of the most “production quality” feeling (if you know what I mean) vehicles at the show — and performance specs are something like 0-60 in 3.7 seconds and lateral G’s of 1.16. These photos don’t do it justice.
I believe this car was being shown by 1G Racing.
Carlisle 2006, Conventions, Laser 917 | Sun, 11 Jun 2006 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
I can’t believe that between Clive and I we only took four almost identical photos of this cleanly and traditionally finished Elite Enterprises Laser 917 kitcar. It even has a factory bumper! I was sad to see only one at a show… I fear as time goes on, more and more Lasers share the same fate as mine, back-shelved in a barn somewhere, waiting for the day the owner retires (or gets divorced) and finally has the time to finish it…
…this finished one is owned by Mark Bidwell of Neptune City, NJ, and is built on a 1971 VW chassis.
Carlisle 2006, Conventions, GTM Supercar | Sun, 11 Jun 2006 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
One of the hottest cars at Carlisle 2006 was the Factory Five GTM Supercar, which to me sort of looks like a Ferrari 360 from the back and a modernized GT40 (although that’s not being entirely fair). What blew me away was they designed this car to be built for under $30,000, and the full kit sells for $19k! It’s a complete kit that you can finish with Corvette parts and a Porsche transaxle (G50). Having sat in the car it’s incredibly comfortable (I’m 6’2″, 220 pounds, and I saw a guy a lot bigger than me sit in it as well).
Anyway, it was hard to get a good shot of the car because it there were always people gathered around it, and it was inside rather than outside so I couldn’t get any distance from it (and even if I could, as soon as a I stepped away, others took my place). I can tell you though that theses pictures (and ones I’ve seen in magazines) don’t do the car justice.
