Admittedly I do not know anything about this. They contacted us on facebook, and posted a photo. It looks great thats for sure. I have not been able to find any pricing, where it is built, and so on. I will be contacting them for additional information soon.

Here is a rare Gem. A Marcotte/American Coach Craft Vision III was built in the 1980s . Rick sent in these photos but said he did not have time to track down the owner and talk to him more about it. If you know who the owners is have him/her shoot us a message and tell us a bit about it.

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
Thanks Rick, We are glad to be able to keep such a great site alive and active. Keep on submitting your images and comments.

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.

Just when the molds come up and we mourn the death of another grass roots kit we have this stunning example offered,
I admit I have never seen one in person and while it’s said to be styled after a BMW I see some Pantera-ish look to it too,
I could see this with AC being a cool daily driver.
This example looks very good to me if I see any downside the huge over done beveled body seams look gross, the rear seams vary in size and I would have to make that look better if I owned it.
Next bummer to me is it’s built on a 64 which makes it a swing axle and why the anemic 1300 single port?
This one isn’t road ready so even with a reserve it might be a good deal for someone, timing not right for me for this make and model,
So read the ad carefully it needs work but looks sweet what would YOU pay for it?

2013 is fast approaching and we want to hear from you. Price of his toys is a 2 man operation. We post when we have time, or when we see something interesting. In 2013 I want to start adding more things you would all like to see. I was thinking about paint and body tips, fabrication tips, and things along those lines. All great things to help you move forward on your build.
I have tossed a few ideas out, now what about you? What is it that you would like to see more of?

Can’t blame the guy for trying. This guy has spent about $10k on this hand built car . This one of a kind car is sporting a Volkswagen chassis, a Nissan farming engine, and a rough hand built body. Apparently the car is primarily used to transport fertilizer to his parents farm. drive on man, drive on.

PRI was back in Orlando for it’s final year this weekend. Owned by SEMA, the PRI show showcases new products from 100s of manufactures. The 3 day show draws attendees from all over the USA. I decided to go on Thursday because they had a breakfast with special guest speaker John Force, and they also have their “Happy Hour” were they give out free beer and food at the end of the first day…haha
Anywho I am not going to bother you with a commentary on everything. Here are a few photos of the cars that had on display.
