Just a short intro to give you and idea of the kind of
people who are mad enough to build a Kit Car!.
Well not quite all ..I now
work in I.T but have spent many years in Engineering, i.e. Maintenance
Engineer, Production Engineer, Quality Engineer, Design/Development
Engineer, Draughtsman etc. Through my engineering work I became
interested in I.T and started programming games and bespoke software.
After a while I realised I.T was the future for me.
I had always been a biker but now
found that my CBR 1000 whilst still fun, was loosing some of it's
appeal, (getting wet and falling off a LOT did not help). After
another couple of accidents the bikes had to go.
After a while I started missing the
bike, but then saw an advert for a Kit Car and started to feel
nostalgic about the days I used to work on my old cars. Rebuilding
engines ,tuning and racing Karts. I remembered my old mini with
great affection, rebuilt and refurbished from scratch.
So what to do now ? I have a nice
large Garage, a bit more time on my hands now the house is just
about done.. I know let's build a Kit Car !. Well I had actually
thought about building a Kit Car in the past, but now there seemed
to be much more choice available and lot's of help and advice
via the Internet.
My wife is very supportive and quite
likes the idea of a Lotus 7 type Kit Car. I have 2 little girls
(3 and 5 years old), who both think the Kit Car looks like Chitty
Chitty Bang Bang !!!.
