Ants Alfa
 
Probably old news, but it looks like Ant is starting to do a little kit based on the MX5. Probably not road legal (cough cough) but for once, it could be built as a kit and run on the road in the US (well in my state with a little hard work with the department of public safety).

What do you think?

Hadn't seen this one but just watched the first episode on Amazon and, shaky-cam aside, it's looking very interesting. Thanks for sharing the link :)

About to watch the first episode

Looking at it doubt if it could be made road legal over here without a lot of work or more money thrown at it but what a cracking track day car it could be .

Imagine a load of these racing around

I've watched the first few episodes and have been enjoying it.

Have now binge-watched the whole series and it's a fascinating journey.

He did a fantastic job with the development of the car and can even register it for the road in California using a similar rebody process to the UK.

The only thing I wasn't keen on was his bespoke gear-change linkage which to me appeared to give pretty clumsy and long travel changes.

It's a shame the Alfa gearlever appeared to have been cut off during engine and gearbox removal as I felt it would have been within reach of the driver. After all, they stick out of the dash pretty much horizontally in the donor Spider giving an up-down plane of movement rather than aft-fore.

Bloody lovely car, though.
