I would offer to swap but your is the wrong color

slangenracing 5th March 2014 09:24

WorldClassAccident 5th March 2014 10:17

Not quite a Sauber C9 but this is my daily driver. A nice normal looking SLK

with a 600hp supercharged 5 litre V8!

DSG4ME 5th March 2014 11:42

Very nice indeed. Powerfull and reliable but as a daily driver how are the M.P.G. ?

WorldClassAccident 5th March 2014 12:12

35.7mpg avg on Southampton to Stevenage

somewhat less when 'pressing on'

slangenracing 5th March 2014 13:08

Nice!

DSG4ME 7th March 2014 09:07

What about a Porsche 911 with Porsche 356 Carrera body panels ? A sort of mix between old and new.

I don`t know if something like this has been done before.

zagmad 7th March 2014 15:50

im not sure but they do do some replicas of old porsche's with 1.4 polo engines what period im not sure. possible donor could be the toyota mr2 mk3. for me use of the boot is a good thing as it means use for short get aways with the mrs round country roads not just for weekends and when the hot yellow thing comes out from the clouds. the 24hr lemans looks good. bit of lowering required to get the right stance at the back but doable.

zagmad 7th March 2014 16:01

convertibles like the mx5,z3 have hardtops that could have a mold taken and the line from the b pillar could be softened to give the lemans look using that hardtop. suspension would require lowering 50-60mm. clever use of offsets and wider panelling might be able to help avoid putting spacers on for insurance company's that are sensitive to such modifications.

Ollie 7th March 2014 18:11

I love Porsche 356's, and i really love early 911's, but if someone started cutting up 911's to create 356's i'd have a heart attack.......

About 5mpg at a guess.

WorldClassAccident 8th March 2014 09:48

Probably but you can't 'press on' for very long on public roads so it isn't too bad

zagmad 12th March 2014 18:21

right here goes. de tomaso panterra, wedge shape cars ive got masserati bora,ferrari 280, magnum pi style ferrari wedge shaped and yes i know these cars are mid engined but why not use a mx5/z3 as the windscreen and side doors for them works quite well. plus could adapt a hardtop to targa top. if panels are put behind the seats. some may find it offensive that ive suggested using front engine rear drive car but when on a budget and need for multi purpose it seems logical

zagmad 12th March 2014 18:27

eg aerodynamics of sports car with a boot for the weekend away trip or hols in a beach villa with the mrs. cant really refer to them as gt cars as mid engine usually means all out race car.

Jaguartvr 12th March 2014 19:44

I like that, ultra retro!

DSG4ME 21st April 2014 12:10

How about a VW Beetle based VintageStyle Bugatti Veyron !!!

http://www.diseno-art.com/news_conte...ron-Beetle.jpg

Mister Towed 21st April 2014 13:33

I like that, is it for real or just a photoshopped concept?

DSG4ME 21st April 2014 14:12

I'm not sure if its real or not but it looks awsome.
I bet Chris could build one if he wanted.

Tribute Automotive 21st April 2014 19:50

It's a very good photoshop. I like most wheeled things, but not generally VW's.

zagmad 27th April 2014 09:23

Nice to see they've kept the chrome bumper on. Not sure what the Bugatti grills needed for but nice twist. Classic style ,modern aerodynamics. Low and wide

WorldClassAccident 27th April 2014 10:53

I thought Chris preferred his rat rods

Having just come back from a week long trip around Germany visiting more car museums than I care to mention I have fallen in love with this:

http://www.supercars.net/gallery/119513/2638/991925.jpg

Wonder if Chris fancies branching out into kits to fit a Beetle chassis?

Scottie22 29th July 2014 21:48

I would like Chris to build me a robot that could do all the shitty fiddly jobs on my build. Come to think of it that would be most of it!

Mmmmmmmm perhaps not.............

Martin and Walker offer the Technic 904 GTS replica/homage/lookalikey/whatever in the uk -

http://www.technic-motorsport.com/M&...4%20intro.html

Not cheap though...

zagmad 30th July 2014 21:36

Don't laugh. A 5 door lotus exige tribute. Love the flowing design and thin vertical lights and wide arches. I've been looking at it for a while . The Mrs couldn't moan then as it has five doors which would have poppers put in the rear doors so no door handles. Raised door panels. 16+17inch alloys lowered to match the exige. Only difference is i would have a ford fiesta grill l

zagmad 30th July 2014 21:43

Id have four sports seats. And a stripped out interior just four bucket seats . Steering wheel and dials.

EL PRIMER 30th July 2014 22:03

I would like Chris to build himself a Birthday cake .

Happy Birthday you old tw@t !

zagmad 30th July 2014 22:12

How about a lotus elan mk1 tribute with small pop up lights

Thanks Mr Towed found that and another company in the US. They look stunning but are way out of my price range. I suppose by hard top MX250C looks a bit like this, albeit that the engine is in the wrong end.

WorldClassAccident 1st August 2014 15:42

I wonder if the Porsche could be made to fit on this

http://www.auto-editie.nl/prive/foto...ter_skelet.jpg

The prices seem to be dropping below £6K and they should handle ok

Paul D 5th November 2014 20:54

How about this Ferrari Monza replica on Ebay.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2012070203...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Maybe on a TVR 350 V8 wedge chassis?

Paul D.

Car photographer 5th November 2014 21:57

I wonder if that porsche could be fitted to a boxster ?

What I'd really love is a jaguar XJ13 - maybe that could be fitted to a boxster with the mid engine layout?

jmc14 5th November 2014 22:30

I just purchased a complete set of molds for this body. Looks like it will be a fun winter if my health holds out. 2 heart attacks this year. :(

garyh 6th November 2014 08:42

That's nice, where do you get a windscreen from, though?

Scottie22 6th November 2014 10:00

Jmc14,
keep taking the pills, I'm sure you'll be fine, good luck with your project!

Scottie

Mister Towed 6th November 2014 13:26

Very pretty car and I love those Cromodora alloys. Reminds me of the Ferrari P4.

Good luck with the health thing, hope all is well.

WorldClassAccident 6th November 2014 16:37

I wonder if you could use these guys to shorten the mould development.

Take in a model of the car you want to build, get them to knock out a polystyrene model and slap a mould off that.

The other thing you could do is scan a car and then modify the file to make the car fit your donor.

Wouldn't mind an SWB on top of that :-)

Or better still, this on top of the Vauxhall tub.

And take it easy JMC ;-)
