I'll say it again (as I still get asked) >>It's not a kit, it's not made of fibreglass... it's all hand-made and all done in steel<< Every step of the build is shown in the site - just click here or the numberplate on the right to get started.

An exciting start to November - my car made it to the front cover of Capri Club International magazine!! Plus there's a four page write-up on my car inside. I'm absolutely delighted :-)

The shot on the right was taken from Cliff's VW camper as I was heading towards Oxford on the M40.
