  • OT- kit cars

    Looking for a future car for myself. I always liked the 260Z- another that I don't think I've ever seen in the flesh is the Toyota 2000GT. I only have six dollars in my bank account so I can't afford the GT It's a pretty cool looking car though, I like it. Can anybody see having that as a kit car- electric version?

    If you could have any kit car, what would it be?
    I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

      OT- kit cars :

      Corona Cal and Kit cars were all the rage. My Dad bought one. And a VW pan. Good times.

        Kit cars... how about cars that are a kit? I'd love to build myself a Caterham some day.

              owning a kit car ranks right up there with dating a transgender on my Yeah, Right, Buddy list. my automotive toy is a baja bug. unfortunately an engine worth having runs at about the cost of a not thrashed Ford Focus.

                Dual port 1600s are still easy to find and rebuilding a VW is about the simplest engine work ever.

                    260Z? Toyota? Come on, really? Step up to a man's car--The Ferrari Portofino. You could pick up chicks no matter how ugly you are. And, you could blow her skirt off in first gear. 0-60 in 3.5 seconds.

                      Friend of mine has a Marlin (sort of Lotus 7 inspired) and another started a Jimini which is based on the mini Moke. One of my bosses was making a GT6 copy and needed some missing parts so he bought a part built one too which he told the wife was hers.
                      I fancied the Nova and heard one was made steam powered. Also the Hustler as a possible electric car, possibly the only all wood car ever made (although one was designed for Africa). But my all time favourite is the Voodoo.

                          While not really "kit cars" in the sense that you could buy a shell and build out yourself, I've loved theses things and been following his builds since he started. Not cutting edge performance, but the smiles per gallon factor would be pretty high driving one of those I imagine. Pretty skilled guy.

                            Or, get a real car that is fun to drive. Like a Sunbeam Tiger, or Triumph TR6,
