That's a compliment then, it must have been constructed as good as it looked as he has not been on here bitching about it. Lol.

Yes, those only fill one corner! Vanessa is out for MoT at the moment. she will be coming back soon. :biggrin:

Nice! Since i got rid of mine I've been told that both my mother and wife preferred it over the new toy.

They're wrong, obviously!

But if i only had the space (and the money) then I'd be seriously considering taking to you.....
if..

Just seen the new ebay listing and it needs more pictures and information imho. It was ebay that sold the Sammio to me in the first place. I'd searched 'Spyder' looking for an RSK 718 replica and found Gary's listing instead. It had enough information about the concept and photos - from bare shells to finished cars - to convince me I could build one myself. I know the jury's still out on whether I can or not, but Gary got another sale. Good luck!

I agree. I'll be adding more photos soon but wanted to get the advert placed as soon as I'd set the pricing concept. Glad you found it though. I've already got a potential sale in France as a result !

Love the factory photo. :cool:

There is something about the cars in an industrial setting that seems just right.

So good luck with your new premise Andy, hope it all goes well.

Take care, Paul. :)

PS
Is it the angle of the photo, or does the blue demonstrator's radiator stick out higher than the bonnet?

No.1

Do I spy a slightly more swoopy top-of-door-line on the little green machine? Looks like another "possible" to add to my list.

Good spot that man. It does have a bit of the TR2/3 about it. Could be a good mod for the (slightly) less mobile to climb over the side of a doorless car.

AndyP57 30th January 2013 10:55

Very well spotted that man :biggrin: Yes, we're looking at exit / entry routes that will make it easier without doors and add to the lines at the same time. That Green car will embody all our new changes in one go. Probably spray it a lovely Scarab Green afterwards.....

Viatron 30th January 2013 10:59

Tell you what you could always lengthen the bonnet a bit a glue half an upside down wheelbarrow to the bonnet ?

Viatron 30th January 2013 11:00

:peep:

Stop it! :laugh:

Seriously, I have considered putting a foot-hole in the rear (passenger side, at the height of the lights), and a grip-tape patch on a strengthened area (steel beneath) on the rear deck so that I can just walk up the back and step in.

I saw an old chap at Gurston Down get in to his car like this and I was rather taken by it.
