In the old days you only needed to get an MOT and you would be issued with a "Q" plate. You could put just about anything on the road from a shed to a sofa !

You're right , they did have problems in that area, fatigue related partial failures. Nothing that couldn't be fixed and strengthened.

Some areas would need to be beefed up !

BMW themselves fitted a V12 in a Z3 as a one off. I'm sure they didn't use the 1.9 diff from their donor !

It would great to see one of the Tribute kits equipped with a big BMW V8. An easy 500BHP can be had from the M versions !

The 7's that emerged after were all similar but very slightly different. Must have been different enough in the eyes of the rule makers to be deemed ok.
Not sure what happened with the Cobra replica...

Anyone going to Newark or Stoneleigh

Is anyone planning to go to the revamped Newark show or the rescheduled Stoneleigh ?

They might be successful events as so many other shows have been cancelled this year.

Great looking chassis, I've not heard of them before.
I wonder how many of those re chassis'd cars actually got entered for IVA ?
I can see many cars being "restored" featuring a new chassis.

I think the Kobra works as a modern interpretation of the classic shape. A bit like the modern Mini or Beetle. If you're not that familiar with the Z3 shape you wouldn't realise right away., the Z3...
