Concept 2000 | Sun, 06 Oct 2013 Posted by : Donnie
Well we recently posted the white Concept 2000 that is currently on eBay but if white is not your thing maybe I can interest you in Black? The seller of this car says he purchased it 10 years ago, its on an 87 Fiero SE and that kits went for $75k. And most important that it is RARE!
At the time of me posting this the auction has 15 bids and is at $6405. What do you think it will end at?
Concept 2000 | Fri, 04 Oct 2013 Posted by : Donnie
Featured in the October 1994 issue of Kit Car Illustrated the Concept 2000 was a kit car produced by A to Z out of Ft Lauderdale. The car is said to be a loose (very loose) version of the Dodge Turbo Interceptor from the Charlie Sheen movie The Wraith. In my opinion nothing about it resembles the Wraith Car.
The car on eBay has a BIN price of $21,900 . At the core of the car is a 1988 Pontiac Fiero V6 with a Garrett Turbo. It also retained all the factory Fiero interior. The seller is quick to point out that THIS IS NOT A KIT CAR but in reality is was. It was offered in 3 packages. for $7000 you could get the basic body package, for $12,000 you could get an advanced packaged (mounted to your chassis) and for $25,000 you could get a turnkey. I dont doubt that the car in the auction is a factory built car, but lets be real. If it was offered as a kit in KIT CAR ILLUSTRATED its a kit car.
I have never really liked the use of the word rare when it comes to kit cars. In this case it is a Fiero with a body kit and not a production car. About 26,000 1988 fieros were produced. Is it nice? Sure! Was the body made in very low numbers? Yup! Worth $21k? Um not to me but I can still appreciate the car. Then again I would say the same about any Lambo kit on a stretched fiero chassis with an asking price of $50k.
What do you guys think ? Do you have $21k laying around and want it? If you had $21k would you buy it?
Oh man this is just to easy. $9000 you can have your very own GT40 replica body on a modified VW chassis. No that was not a typo. The seller is really asking $9000 for this project. He claims it is 60% complete, but judging by the photos its about 40% complete.
You tell me . What would you pay for this? http://akroncanton.craigslist.org/cto/4103886553.html
Im all for a nice 917 replica. Although I am not sure if I would or could drive one on a daily basis . Cool but to much like a “race car” for my taste. But this one must be on an entirely different level then any of us are on. Enter this seller and his $30,000 917 LeMans Replica sitting on a 1974 ghia chassis with a old 914 engine.
That was no typo folks. $30,000 is what he is asking for that beauty. The listing says the body was made in 2009. Did I mention the fact that it is sitting on a almost 40 year old chassis.
Anyone who wants this better buy it fast. At that price I am sure its going to sell super fast. Thats about all I can say. http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/cto/4101991230.html
Scorpion GT | Thu, 03 Oct 2013 Posted by : Donnie
Not many of these around. The scorpion GT was a modified version of the Bradley gt. A few of the differences are the headlights, rear window, and tail lights. The seller is asking $1800 with a seized 2000cc engine.
Could be a good project if you could get it for the right price. It is located in Pennsylvania http://lancaster.craigslist.org/cto/4095800394.html
So I spied this Sweet Astra GT Convertible made by Fiberfab COUGH COUGH. Well as we know fiberfab didn’t make it and well it did not come out of the mold a vert. UGH! Why would anyone do this? Well I emailed the seller to let him know it was not a fiberfab car and to ask him about the roof and I got…
“The car was un-usable with the hard top unless you are 5 foot tall or less. Still have the top” .
At 5’7″ I fit just fine in about 99% of kit cars, and the Astra is no exception. Maybe this didn’t have drop pans? Would you cut the roof of your car or just find a car that works for you?
Its listed in Virginia – Hampton Roads and for $3000 you can have this bastardized Astra GT
Uncategorized, What is it? | Wed, 02 Oct 2013 Posted by : Donnie
I know I know. This will not be everyone’s cup of tea. This is a 1 seat home built trike. Perfect for a trip around your neighborhood but I am not sure if you would want to take it much further. Estimated top speed is 30-35mph and runs on six 12 volt batteries. $2500 you can but it and finish it.
I am just copying the specs from the auction http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&pub=5575009554&toolid=10001&campid=5337106048&customid=&icep_item=231062153021&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229466&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg
Roll bar plus square steel tubing body frame
Windshield is standard windshield ‘sandwich’ glass
Wide safety rear view mirror
Dual side mirrors
Curbside door only so the driver can’t get out into traffic
Tall for visibility in traffic
Painted ‘Safety Yellow’ color for visibility
All running lights are LEDs, except for the regular hi/low beam headlights
Brakes on all 3 wheels
Soft front bumper
What It Still Needs:
No wiring has been done yet.
The steering system needs work.
The braking system needs to be finished.
Tensioners must be added to the motor mount.
The rear fender must be attached.
Other miscellaneous small things need to be done.
I love when our readers send us photos,brochure scans ,or anything else.
Sergei is one of our Russian readers and he has a love for American vintage kit cars. He has a list of items he is looking for so if you can help him out he would greatly appreciate it. Today he is sharing with us these Osage scans. Thanks again Sergei!

UMMMMM OK! The starting bid on this bad boy is $10,000 . For that price you get this great looking (Cough, Cough) Dino replica on a 1993 Miata MX-5. Has working heat, air, power windows, and so on. Its about $8000 more then I would ever consider paying for a miata but there is a buyer out there for everything.
